The DARPA Space Environment Exploitation (SEE) program seeks to develop new models and sensing modalities to predict and observe the dynamics of the near-earth space environment. The SEE program explores how to go beyond magnetohydrodynamic descriptions of the magnetosphere, ionosphere, thermosphere coupled system to include wave/wave, wave/particle, and particle/particle interactions while using the latest advances in high performance computing such as GPUs and TPUs. Furthermore, SEE is exploring how to unify current space environmental sensing networks to produce a common operating space environment picture and how to develop low cost, non-traditional, exploitive, and expeditionary means to observe near-earth plasma dynamics. Another big component of SEE is understanding the viability of how Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can be used to help assimilate environmental data into models and virtually produce synthetic data.
The expected outcomes of SEE will give future commanders and operators the necessary and precise space environment situational awareness to make relevant space operational/tactical decisions and differentiate between human-made and natural dynamic perturbations of the environment.
