Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-202
Budget: 03/03/10 - 07/02/12

The USAF requires accurate specification and forecast of thermospheric densities for LEO satellite orbit calculations. The JB2008 thermospheric density model provides the high accuracy densities, partly made possible by using the Dst index. Dst characterizes the energy input during geomagnetic storms and substorms. Because of JB2008''s advantage...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-202
Budget: 03/27/09 - 04/05/10

Because the Dst is an indicator of space weather disturbances by the solar wind upon the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere system, there is a strong interest for having an operational index based on ground magnetometers located near the equator and/or from LEO satellites such as DMSP or potentially Iridium. However, since the existin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-016
Budget: 06/27/03 - 04/30/04

This project will provide a prototype operational ionospheric forecast system based on the GAIM data assimilation ionospheric model and driven by the best operational models currently available. This system is the type envisioned by the National Space Weather Program. Its development represents a major advance in space weather operational system...
