Abstract : This pamphlet provides guidance to developers, operators, and users of DoD systems (such as satellites, radars, or communications) that operate in or through the space environment. It will familiarize personnel with the various types of space environmental activity, their impacts on DoD systems, and support products and services available to mitigate or exploit those impacts. It also describes the methods used to collect solar and geophysical observations, and explains the terminology used to characterize space environmental activity and its effects. (An abbreviated version of chapters 1 to 3 of this pamphlet, in the form of scripted briefing slides, is available through the HQ AFSPCIDORW homepage.) AFCAT15-152, Volume 5, Space Environment Products contains detailed information on space environmental analysis, forecast, and warning products and services. AF115-118, Requesting Weather Support Assistance, provides guidance on how to obtain support. This pamphlet incorporates and expands on the content of two earlier publications: Air Force Space Forecast Center Pamphlet (AFSFCP) 105-3, Guide to Space Environmental Effects on DoD Operations, and AFSPCPAM55-9, Guide to Space Environmental Effects on AFSPACECOM Site Operations.
