Impact of Policy on Space Weather Services and Science

Space weather impacts technology we rely on everyday: satellites, GPS, aviation, and electric power grids. Rapid advances in space-based technology and widespread dependence on these systems have made society more vulnerable than ever to space weather. Changes in policy have led to increasing use of polar routes for aviation, increasing dependence on GPS, and an increasing vulnerability as the power grid becomes more interconnected—all which have resulted in a greater need for improved space weather forecasts and services.
