Technical Interchange Meeting on C/NOFS Results and Equatorial Dynamics
The C/NOFS Science TIM was held for 2 ½ days on 12-14 March 2013 at the Hotel Andaluz in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was co-organized by the Boston College ISR. The overall objective of this meeting was to address questions related to the dynamics of the equatorial ionosphere from solar minimum to solar maximum. Results from the Communication/Navigation Outage Forecasting System (C/NOFS) satellite, as well as other ground and space instruments, were presented. The meeting also addressed research opportunities during solar maximum and before C/NOFS reentry when the orbit circularized, as well as future programs, including the Space Situational Awareness Environmental Monitoring (SSAEM) mission planned for COSMIC 2 and upcoming CubeSat flights.
