Join us at the 2014 Workshop on Space Environment Applications, Systems, and Operations for National Security (SEASONS)

Join your colleagues from the Military, Government, University, and Contractor sectors who are U.S. Citizens with a Secret Clearance and an interest and stake in the space environment. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the impacts of space weather on DoD and intelligence community (IC) systems, and the applications and requirements for space-weather sensors and algorithms to mitigate these impacts and enhance operations.

This year’s theme will be “Beyond Climatology” and will focus on how space weather events threaten operational assets and disrupt missions. Join us to explore how new tools and mitigation strategies can be applied to improve operational outcomes despite space weather hazards.

The workshop will take place on November 18–20, 2014 in Laurel, Maryland at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Kossiakoff Center.


The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) is a not-for-profit, DoD-chartered University Affiliated Research Center (UARC). A separate division of JHU in service since 1942, APL has a campus of 50 buildings spread across 400 acres located south of Columbia MD, as well as 30 separate operating locations across the United States. The Lab’s 4,300 members—70% of whom are scientists or engineers—focus on providing critical contributions to the nation’s critical challenges. Among the Lab's achievements are development of satellite-based navigation, the Aegis weapon system, the SPY-1 radar, Cooperative Engagement Capability, and electronic warfare capabilities. Recognized as a space weather center of excellence, the 64 spacecraft and 150+ payload instruments JHUAPL has built include the ACE space weather satellite now at L-1, the two STEREO solar observatories in heliocentric orbit, and the SSUSI instruments on the DMSP spacecraft.
