The U.S. Air Force provides operational space weather support to the Department of Defense utilizing a 24/7 operations center supplying tailored products to the warfighter around the globe. These products use a synergistic combination of ground and space-based sensor data and space and terrestrial environmental models to enable more informed decision-making by operational commanders. This presentation will give an update of the Air Force's role as the DoD's Space Weather provider, its collection, analysis and forecasting capabilities, and give examples of how tailored space weather products can help mitigate space weather impacts to DoD missions. It will also highlight the key partnerships the Air Force has with the Civil and International community.
