National Space Weather Program Strategic Plan

The initial National Space Weather Program Strategic Plan, published in 1995, established the National Space Weather Program (NSWP) and set in motion a series of activities that have fostered substantial progress in the national space weather enterprise. 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. 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.
