Research Horizons

Research Horizons The Vapor Cell Atomic Clock Advanced atomic clocks, suitable for space deployment, must allow for extended periods of autonomous constellation operation, which enhances system robustness. Additionally, advanced atomic clocks can lower a mission control station’s workload. Air Force space programs that depend on precise timekeeping, such as GPS, Milstar, and Advanced EHF (AEHF), […]  More »

Feasibility of Space-Based Monitoring for Governance of Solar Radiation Management

Feasibility of Space-Based Monitoring for Governance of Solar Radiation Management Preliminary analysis at Aerospace suggests that detecting tests of particle injection schemes from space will be quite challenging, especially for unannounced small-scale, localized trials with short- term observable effects. Patrick L. Smith, Leslie A. Wickman, Inki A. Min, and Steven M. Beck Climate researchers and […]  More »
