Intelligent Data for a Smarter Planet
With experience spanning decades and multiple disciplines, our scientific team utilizes deep understanding and expertise in many aspects of space physics. We produce new interpretations of data and model output, and new insights and discoveries for our customers.
Through our diverse understanding of science, engineering, and data, we provide intelligent solutions to difficult problems across a multitude of fields. From defense and transportation, to space domain awareness and climate change, ASTRA produces customized technology and data solutions in a variety of different forms to help people and organizations reach their desired goals.
Atmospheric data collection and modeling for weather forecasting, managing economic impact and business interruption, and long-term climate change insight.
Collecting and analyzing actionable intelligence for governments and businesses to operate more efficiently, more profitably and with greater social responsibility when it comes to our resources, our environment and the sustainability of our planet’s ecosystem.
From GPS to the various communication methods we use, our atmospheres have an effect on how we use these devices their ability to function when needed.
From changing upper atmospheric winds and temperature to ocean vector wind and wave models, ASTRA is focused on data to help industry operate more efficiently, safely, and environmentally responsible.
Using data to help government and business manage climate and weather change risks to humans, property and the environment.
Water, food and oxygen are the most critical elements to human existence on earth. Collecting and analyzing atmospheric and terrestrial data to produce, sustain and protect these resources is a priority.
Data Analysis & Assimilation
Assimilative Mapping of Ionospheric Electrodynamics (AMIE)
Deriving high latitude electrodynamic parameters through data ingestion.
Ionospheric Data Assimilation Four-Dimensional Model (IDA4D)
Global electron density specification using multiple diverse data sets from GPS TEC, HF radio, in-situ, GPS occultation, and UV remote sensing.
Atmospheric Density Assimilation Model (ADAM)
Under Phase II SBIR development for satellite drag and orbital prediction.
Traveling Ionospheric Disturbances (TIDs)
Traveling Ionospheric Disturbances are always present in the F-region ionosphere, and impact operational systems employing GPS, radar, and radio.
Changes in distribution can delay, advance the phase, and refract (bend) radio signals, with impacts on GNSS navigation, communication, and surveillance systems.
Changes in thermospheric density create variable satellite drag, adversely affecting space missions
