Space Research and Satellite Technology



Space research activities range from basic and applied research through advanced development in all areas of interest to the Navy space program. Experiment results can be applied in radio communications, the use of the space environment, weather prediction, and the fundamental understanding of natural radiation and geophysical phenomena.
