Abstract:

Our innovative research and analysis techniques have increased the knowledge of space effects on Air Force Systems. Our efforts have included numerous studies that address space effects on Air Force systems such as solar and Interplanetary IP disturbances and their coupling to geomagnetic storms improving solar disturbance predictions basic research in experimental chemical physics that impact space-based systems DMSP database development and maintenance DMSP sensor calibration utilizing DMSP measurements for auroral research and the development of hemispheric power indices and in developing the next-generation trapped electron and proton models for satellite design, AE-9 and AP-9. Finally, our efforts have included the upgrading of existing AFRL programs that are relevant to space weather studies and forecasting such as AF-GEOspace support of the Air Force Space Weather Forecasting Laboratory SWFL and maintenance of relevant databases.
