Uncertainty about the current and future state of the atmosphere impacts a wide range of Army operations over a significant span of spatial and temporal scales. The future Army cannot afford to neglect the lower levels of the atmosphere called the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and its impact on the Warfighter, our equipment and our adversary. The Atmospheric Science Center (ASC) will bring together industry, academia and other government laboratories to advance atmospheric science and its application to critical defense technologies through a collaborative, innovative research ecosystem.
Point of Contact
Open to national and defense labs, universities and industry.
Concept of Operation
The ASC will utilize CRADAs, MOUs and/or Cooperative Agreements to define the extent of collaboration under the center, the disposition of intellectual property, and the sharing of research outcomes and laboratory resources.
