National Space Weather Program Strategic Plan

Strategic_Plan

Start: 2010-06-01, End: 2015-05-31, Publication: 2010-06-30

The Plan will promote the space weather advances our Nation will need as our technology-enabled society races forward in this new century and, at the same time, enhance our society's awareness of the potential impacts of space weather.

In 2005, the Federal and Interdepartmental Committees for Meteorological Services and Supporting Research directed the OFCM to conduct a comprehensive review of the NSWP. To perform this independent review and assessment, a committee of six individuals with expertise encompassing the science and applications aspects of space weather was convened. The recommendations from this independent assessment, the input from numerous space weather conferences, and the legacy of 15 years of progress in the national space weather enterprise provided a solid foundation upon which to build this new NSWP Strategic Plan.

Description:
The Committee for Space Weather (C/SW) shall be the principal means for advancing the goals of the National Space Weather Program -- to achieve an interagency system to provide timely, accurate, and reliable space environment observations, specifications, and forecasts. It shall be responsible for: 1. Identifying the customer base and the customers' needs for space weather products. 2. Assessing the economic benefits of improved space weather services. 3. Establishing formal lines of communications linking all stakeholders in space weather services, including civilian and military agencies of the Government, industry, academia, etc. 4. Coordinating activities conducted by Government agencies with respect to research, instrumentation, data collection, and dissemination. 5. Developing those parts of proposed Federal Plans for Meteorological Services within its assigned areas for efficient utilizations of resources to meet valid user requirements. 6. Tracking progress in the development of the National Space Weather Program, providing periodic progress reports to the National Space 7. Weather Program Council (NSW/PC), and updating the National Space Weather Program Implementation Plan periodically to ensure that it remains a viable plan to advance progress toward meeting customer needs. 8. Considering other matters as directed by the NSW/PC.
