NASA's Robotic and Human Exploration missions can leverage SPRINTS forecasting and SPE-related tools to mitigate the negative effects of SPEs. For NASA Robotic Mission support, SPRINTS can be integrated into NASA's Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC) and could be offered through the Integrated Space Weather Analysis (iSWA) system for spacecraft operators. For NASA's Human Exploration Mission support, SPRINTS could be leveraged by NASA's Space Radiation Analysis Group (SRAG) through their space weather and SPE forecasting lab.
SPRINTS can be leveraged by other Government, Intelligence, and Commercial organizations and customers similarly to NASA applications to help mitigate the negative effects of SPEs. Potential customers that could leverage a commercialized SPRINTS include, but are not limited to, NOAA, USAF, US STRATCOM, Commercial Satellite and Space Systems Operators. Specific applications and opportunities include: - NOAA: SPRINTS can provide valuable space radiation forecasts for NOAA's Earth-based weather satellites. - USAF Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC): Add space radiation forecasts and products in an easy to use visual product through the AGI SSA Suite or JSpOC Mission System (JMS). - US STRATCOM: Space Weather is important from our nation's Strategic capability; STRATCOM is also interested in supporting Foreign Military's (allied) satellite operations with these capabilities - Commercial Satellite Operators: Our business partner Analytical Graphics currently offers Commercial Space Operations Center (ComSpOC) to private sector customers. Addition of Space Weather data products and analysis support through AGI's current marketing and business development could provide access to a wider commercial market. NextGen would deliver SPRINTS via a mixed data products and services model to maximize commercialization and value to customers.
