Ralph Stoffler: Air Force Seeks to Expand Space Weather Forecasting Capacity

The U.S. Air Force has entered into international partnerships as part of efforts to increase the service branch’s capacity to forecast space weather events that may affect U.S. military satellites, Space News reported Tuesday.

Ralph Stoffler, Air Force director of weather, told Space News at an American Meteorological Society meeting that the service branch partnered with multiple NATO and Asian partners to support space weather forecasting efforts.

Stoffler added the branch looks to purchase commercial data gathered from terrestrial or space-based platforms to help address its space weather mission.
