Benefitting national safety and security

  • Unique space weather model will position LANL as a world leader in Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and forensic analysis of space system failures
  • Science-based understanding needed for the analysis and interpretation of LANL data from past and current missions (GEO, RBSP)
  • Advances LANL design capabilities for space-based instrumentation for national security missions
  • Bringing Intelligence and Space Research, Computer, Computational, and Statistical Sciences and Theoretical Divisions to work together to support the Laboratory mission of ensuring national safety and security
  • Space weather – growth area; building strategic partnerships with other agencies (DOD, NOAA, NASA, NSF, FAA), institutions (Aerospace, universities), and commercial customers (satellite operators, etc.)
