Third Symposium on Space Weather


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. .
