Space Weather Observations for Future Generations
SWO develops and deploys operational satellite systems that study space weather and safeguard society.
What we do
SWO manages NESDIS’ space weather programs from inception to launch.
How we do it
SWO is organized into two divisions: Research to Operations and Project Planning Division (ROPPD) and Project Management and Execution Division (PMED).
- ROPPD grows new satellite projects from inception through formulation, developing budgets and plans and operating as a technical liaison for partners and users.
- PMED manages existing satellite projects from formulation to launch, overseeing project delegation and execution by partners to ensure projects meet technical requirements and remain on schedule.
