NOAA is the US’ official source for space weather prediction, forecast, and warning services. It operates 24/7 and is one of a handful of National Critical Systems operated by the National Weather Service. Using real-time data from a variety of sources, NOAA’s staff provides space weather guidance that is critical for advanced technologies such as space exploration missions, telecommunications satellites, air transportation communications and the national power grid infrastructure.
