    21. Space Environmental Data Flow * Red denotes DMSG’s involvement from Sensor to Shooter

    22. DMSP Sensor Suite

    23. DMSP F18 Sensor Suite

    24. Operational Linescan System (OLS)Products & Users Provides the user with high resolution day and night imagery in the visible and infrared wavelengths in order to accurately map the global cloud distribution. • Primary input to AFWA and FNMOC (Fleet Numerical Meteorology Oceanography Center) – Cloud and Weather Forecasting • Primary high resolution imagery source for the National/Naval Ice Center • Major waterway monitoring • Arctic and Antarctic sea ice progression and regression

    25. Supported Capabilities • Command & Control • DMSP image of sand storm • Force Protection (sand/dust storms)

    26. Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMIS) • Is a passive instrument with 24 channels • Provides atmospheric profiles from the 30 kilometers SSMIS Products:

    27. SSUSI & SSULI Special Sensor Ultraviolet Limb Imager (SSULI): Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrograph Imager (SSUSI): • Remotely senses ionospheric, • atmospheric, and auroral • parameters • Provides continuous measurement of UV radiation from 80 nm to 170nm in FUV/EUV • Profiles the ionosphere and upper atmosphere for space weather forecasting

    28. SSUSI & SSULI Ultraviolet airglow associated with the ionosphere Input to operational ionospheric models Improve DoD systems affected by ionosphere

    29. DMSP SensorsSSIES/SSJ5/SSM Special Sensor Ion/Electron Scintillator (SSIES): Provides the user with electron and ion data for space operations and in-situ data for space weather model analysis Special Sensor J/5 Precipitating Electron Spectrometer (SSJ/4-5): Time/space vs energy distribution of the charged particle environment in the close proximity to the spacecraft Special Sensor Magnetometer (SSM): Calculated field-aligned currents by measuring changes in the local magnetic field.

    40. Next Generation Ionosonde(NEXION)

    41. SSA Environmental Effects Fusion System (SEEFS) • SEEFS merges environmental data with space system parameters to specify effects on ground & space assets

    42. AFRL’s Opinion

    43. SupraThermal Electron, Ion, Neutral Experiment STEIN (AFRL-0903)PI (or PM): Chin S. Lin, AFRL/RVBXI Technical Problem: Current charged particle detectors are too large and heavy for nano-satellites Military Relevance: • Allow warfighters to distinguish environmental effects from hostile threats • Accurate anomaly root cause analysis • Leverages new miniature solid state detector • Built and tested sensors, prototype, & components Size: 10x10X15 cm Weight: 1.5 kg Power: 1 W • Hardware Status: • Current Technology Readiness Level: 6 • Flight Unit: 4th quarter FY11 • Flight Ready: 2nd quarter FY12 • New advanced technology developed by Univ. of California at Berkeley 44 Distribution Statement D: "Distribution to US Government Agencies and Authorized DoD Contractors only; Administrative or Operational Use; 11 October 2005. Other Requests for this document shall be referred AFRL/RVBXI.

    44. Plasma Drift, Particles And Ion Density • Ion Velocity Meter (IVM): • Consists of a Retarding Potential Analyzer (RPA) and an Ion Drift Meter (IDM). Heritage instrument is flying on DMSP and C/NOFS. • Low Energy ElectroStatic Analyzer (LEESA-2): • Electrostatic analyzer adapted to a high inclination orbit. Measures energies 30eV - 50 keV. 4U size. • Provides accurate determination of auroral boundaries and particle energy input.

    47. Summary

    48. DMSP Recent Successes • Identified & fixed F19 OLS performance degradation • Anomaly: OLS Dark Noise Factory Test out of limits during 8 Oct 09 test • Root Cause: Identified Apr 10; metal-metal corrosion created resistance • Corrective Action: Completed fix & system level re-test 20 Apr 10 (results nominal) • F19 OLS Flight Unit delivery to LM planned for 20 Aug 10 Performance returned to post-ATP conditions Variability due to test conditions

    49. DMSG Successes Successfully completed DMSP F20 Early Power Turn On Testing -- first tests in 14 years! Identified and fixed F19 OLS performance degradation--return to ATP performance Successful F15 Gyroless Yaw Estimator Test--extends DMSP mission life Earth Sensor Assembly Bias Estimate Improvement--solves lens fogging issue Completed SSAEM's Alternatives Analysis--most cost-effective concept established Conducted MDA Program Status Meeting & Concept Recommendation SSAEM Sensor Modernization Source Selection in progress and on-track for August awards C/NOFS Team discovered that scintillation occurs not only between dusk and midnight --but also midnight to dawn Completed formal Development Test as part of JSpOC Mission System (JMS)  Identified and corrected system errors which led to major component failures in the solar observatory antenna pedestal gearboxes  Identified and coordinated a new MKIVB in-theater location for CENTCOM at Ali Al Salem Completed four NEXION installs and the fifth one is going in at Goose Bay this month
