Our Mission

Space Environment Technologies (SET) is a global leader providing space weather instrumentation and cloud-based data applications. Our customers are the U.S. government, academia, and the international commercial aerospace industry. SET has built an ecosystem of complementary products and services, including support from our partners, that provides leading-edge space physics models, innovative instruments, and unique operational data feeds found nowhere else in the world. Combined, these capabilities reduce adverse effects of space weather upon our planet, upon humans, and upon our technology. Our Vision of building new capabilities for living, working, and thriving in space guides our development of fundamental scientific knowledge, space weather hazard mitigation tools, satellite protection processes, radiation decision aids, navigation accuracy methods, and communication solutions.

Space Weather Mitigation

Mitigating and protecting people and technology from space weather starts with understanding the Sun. Full disk solar spectral irradiances are provided through this portal. Managing hazards depends on deep scientific knowledge and, in support of this, SET’s researchers provide a breadth of expertise in understanding the physics in Outer Planet and Inner Solar System domains.Click the arrow to learn more...

Satellite Protection

Satellite protection requires situational awareness about: 1) the Magnetosphere's geomagnetic storms and the state of the radiation belts; 2) the Atmosphere thermosphere densities relevant to space traffic management and the historical, high-accuracy SET HASDM Database atmosphere density baseline; and 3) Satellite charging probabilities.

Radiation Decision Aids

The ARMAS, NAIRAS, and RADIAN systems provide historical, current, and forecast information based on state-of-the-art measurements and models about the radiation exposure risk for humans.

Navigation Accuracy

The SpoT-On program has developed a capability for reducing single-frequency GNSS position errors down dual-frequency levels. Improved location accuracy is useful across all industries and our team continues to improve position, navigation, and timing for end-users.

Communication Solutions

The Utah State University Space Weather Center provides historical, current, and forecast ionosphere densities through its GAIM model. SET partners closely with USU SWC and uses GAIM for applications that benefit defense, navigation, and communication industries.
