Abstract : The FY97 Geophysics Technology Area Plan describes Phillips Laboratory's exploratory and advanced technology development strategy to support AF environmental and Army air and combat operations. Systems that sense environmental conditions from space will be increasingly important in providing this support. Objective is to improve the specification and forecasting, for longer periods and more precisely, of performance limiting battlespace conditions wherever our forces operate.
