#CATWXTerrestrial Weather



How can we make servicing satellites in space as easy as maintaining your car?


Find commercial solutions to address the ability to monitor earth’s terrestrial environments with the objective of providing improved global weather data and products to support the warfighter.

Solutions may include anything from a full commercial operations floor providing services and data to the US government, to a set of niche ground and space based sensors, data, data processing, improved algorithms, and services provided directly to an Air Force operations floor or operators on the ground.

Solutions are desired across a wide array of relevant technologies that demonstrate a commercial viability.
