This contribution to the HamSCI 2022 Workshop will provide: A summary of the goals of the NASA’s Heliophysics Division (HPD); A summary of the strategies and activities of the space weather and citizen science programs in NASA’s HPD. The presentation will discuss the relevance of the space weather and citizen science research programs to the HamSCI community.
NASA/HPD ROSES programs solicit research proposals so that amateur radio observations could be utilized for innovative science and technology research. NASA/HPD anticipates creating opportunities to enhance participation of the HamSCI community in observations of natural events in the 2023-2024 timeframe: The Heliophysics Big Year (HBY) including the upcoming annular solar eclipse (Oct 14, 2023) and total solar eclipse (Apr 8, 2024) over North America as well as the next solar max. NASA/HPD anticipates supporting HamSCI activities through space-based observations that can be leveraged by amateur radio scientists to enhance scientific contribution of the HamSCI community.
