DoD Perspectives on Space Weather
Col. Harold Elkins, U.S. Department of Defense, Pentagon, DC
Space weather has grown in importance to the Department of Defense (DoD) as it exploits space-based capabilities. Today space weather affects ground, sea, air, and space operations ranging from disaster relief to major conflicts. DoD identified three space weather capabilities needing further development: a national space weather collection strategy improving the quality and quantity of data describing the state of the environment; improved, coupled physics-based models linking each region of space in order to better predict the future state of the space environment; and integration of actionable, predictive space weather impacts to DoD capabilities and systems into operational information architectures. .
