Abstract : The Space Forecasting Data Processing Systems is part of a Research and Development (R+D) effort performed at Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories (AFCRL) in conjunction with the Air Weather Service (AWS). This R+D project is an effort designed to receive, analyze, process and disseminate results of astrogeophysical data collected by a worldwide observational network. The computer programs developed are part of a large operational system executed on the Univac 1108 digital computer housed at Offutt Air Force Base, Omaha, Nebraska. The developed programs will process and analyze incoming data for operational as well as scientific use, and specifically attempt to relate pertinent solar phenomena to effects caused within the earth's atmosphere/ionosphere.
