  • Uptick in Solar Activity Parallels Discussion on Effects of Space Weather on the Electrical Grid

    Uptick in Solar Activity Parallels Discussion on Effects of Space Weather on the Electrical Grid Gathering of power industry and solar science experts in April focuses on early warning needs and opportunities Louisville, CO, April 28, 2022 —Our electric grid is at the whim of the natural world’s powerful forces – wind, lightning, Sun. As the solar cycle ramps back up in activity (a regular occurrence after relatively quiet period), the power grid reawakens to the threat of space weather, which has the potential to push the system beyond its tipping point. Space weather is a global and imminent threat, falling in the same likelihood of occurrence in the next five years as “pandemic influenza,”[1] but society is less prepared for a space weather disaster than another pandemic. Power grids are complex systems and solar activity resulting in geomagnetic storms can wreak havoc on grid infrastructure. Current ability to predict such storms exists, but is only as mature as weather prediction was 50 years ago. This makes good communication between scientists, emergency managers, and those in charge of the power grid essential. Such communications are often stymied by lack of common vocabulary and technical focus and understanding between the groups. Orion Space Solutions’ (OSS) Ryan McGranaghan[2] and his university and power grid collaborators strive to change this reality through the concept of convergence ,[3] or a radical merging of innovative ideas, approaches, and technologies from a diverse range of sectors and expertise. Through a National Science Foundation-funded workshop (Award Number: AGS-2131047) and with the understanding that to reimagine grid resilience, data from diverse fields must be open and broadly usable and the traditionally disparate communities must be connected, McGranaghan brought together experts from diverse fields to share expertise and take advantage of the spectrum of innovation, knowledge, and assets available within and across these groups. The group was animated by three questions: What are the research & development and operational gaps that emerge from a holistic view of the Sun-to-Power Grid system and what solutions can we imagine to address them? What is the composition of the teams that can create these solutions? How do we connect these gaps to existing programs and form bridges across them? “We designed this event based on a convergence approach to Sun-to-Power Grid resilience, recognizing that national-scale societal challenges require transdisciplinary collaboration and novel ways to facilitate it”, says Dr. McGranaghan of OSS. “So we created a simulation game that enabled individuals from every part of the system to communicate, learn, and understand.” The interactions were facilitated through an extreme space weather simulation game--a table-top coupled with simulation and observational data in an interactive environment to reveal novel research and development gaps for the Sun-to-Power Grid System. The novel simulation game identified linkages across knowledge areas to better anticipate, understand, and respond to effects of space weather on the nation’s power grids. The engaging three-day workshop generated new understanding about the complex sun-to-power grid system by converging the range of communities that are involved, identifying the research & development and operational gaps, and proposing solutions for those gaps. In a close, and novel, partnership with RWI Synthetics[4] , they demonstrated the human dimension of socio-economic impacts of outage by synthesizing the entire population of Washington DC, including social, economic, and medical details to model and visualize the individualized impacts of outage on the population of a city. The event was organized into three days: the simulation game, synthesizing lessons learned and gaps, and systems-building, which had teams of data scientists and domain scientists and engineers work together to prototype solutions. Critical outcomes include: A lessons learned database that cover how to achieve convergent interactions and guidance for future Sun-to-Power Grid interactions; Enumerated and organized R&D gaps that can guide the community in setting policy, advocating resources, and proposing new projects; and A knowledge base of simulation data, literature, a community exchange platform, and a template for running simulation games. The workshop is the next step in the successful NSF Convergence Accelerator Project the Convergence Hub for the Exploration of Space Science (CHESS)[5] which pioneered the paradigm-shifting convergent approach to Sun-to-Power Grid research, development, and operations. “Space weather is about societal resilience, multiphysics, and multiscale. This simulation game embodied all three facets”, says Dr. Mangala Sharma, Program Director for Space Weather Research at the NSF. The community the CHESS project has been cultivating along with existing programs and projects in the field includes representatives from the National Science Foundation, NASA, Department of Energy, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), United States Geological Survey (USGS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), several national space weather programs, and numerous academic and private institutions.

  • MISSIONS | Orion

    SORTIE The Scintillation Observations & Response of the Ionosphere to Electrodymanics (SORTIE) mission was designed to map and further understand the ionosphere’s wave-like plasma perturbation distributions. SORTIE deployed from the International Space Station (ISS) in 2020 and demonstrated the first successful integration, ground calibration and flight of a single-aperture ion velocity meter instrument package for ionospheric measurements from a CubeSat. As a pathfinder mission, SORTIE opens the door to a “constellation of SORTIEs” that would then help provide an instantaneous global view of the Earth’s ionospheric structure and activity. RROCI Striving to bridge gaps and improve the functionality of space-based environmental monitoring (SBEM) systems, the United States Space Force (USSF) Space Systems Command (SSC) sought a commercial prototype electro-optical / infrared weather system (EWS) mission capable of characterizing global clouds in near real-time to support Department of Defense operations. SSC selected Orion Space Solutions to produce the EWS Rapid Revisit Optical Cloud Imager (EWS RROCI). EWS RROCI utilizes commercial off-the-shelf systems to produce cloud characterization and is set to launch in March 2024. ORION-SUPPORTED MISSIONS Orion Space Solutions supports a diverse range of missions. The breadth of mission needs showcases our adaptability and depth of expertise across all operational domains. Our foundation in space science and physics allows us to deliver high-quality products and services to defense and civilian customers, and create technology solutions that can be used on Earth, in space and everywhere in between. DRAGSTER With the entrance of new international partici­pants in space and with the rapid expansion of com­mercial activities in low Earth orbit (LEO), the number of space objects needing high-fidelity tracking is growing very quickly. The USSF currently tracks more than 29,000 ob­jects in LEO, up from 20,000 just a few years ago. To address this challenge, Orion developed Dragster which improves the limitations of existing atmospheric drag models with its assimilative frame­work. This forward-look­ing design means that the Dragster tool can be op­timized to leverage an ensemble of models most appropriate for the task at hand, and future improve­ments to any such models will flow directly into Drag­ster performance. OSVW Sensor Ocean surface vector wind data is critical for weather models, forecasts, ship maneuvers and flight operations for all armed services, as well as commercial maritime shipping and drilling operations. Orion developed a SmallSat form-factor payload that uses the reflection of global positioning system signals off the ocean to measure sea state and ocean surface vector winds (OSVW) for weather forecasting. The sensor is still on-orbit and we continue to collect and analyze the data. EDGE LIDAR EDGE is the world's first small-scale topographic and bathymetric scanning LiDAR that can detect small underwater objects, measure shallow water depth, and survey critical underwater infrastructure from a small UAV platform—developed and produced at Orion. EDGE provides high-definition measurements both above and below the water surface and accurately measures the transition from land to water. Additionally, the tool provides simultaneous water and bottom surface detection at sub-centimeter accuracy and precision from shore through shallow waters—an industry first. LEARN MORE

    OSS PRISM OSS PRISM Effort Creates Early Warnings for Catastrophes & Improves Preparedness for Space Weather In March 1989, three separate seemingly unrelated events occurred resulting in a widespread electrical blackout for Northeastern Canada and the US. A tripped circuit transformer blew up in the Hydro-Québec power grid left 6 million people without electricity. A week earlier, an unusually harsh snowstorm had strained the region; the day before, a solar flare and accompanying release of plasma and magnetic field sent a mountain of energy propelling toward Earth at a million miles an hour. The complex interactions of these interconnected systems – environmental science, space weather and solar activity – pushed the electric power grid to a tipping point that could not be understood when only looking at these systems individually--not as a whole. within any single one of those systems. The P redictive R isk I nvestigation S ystem for M ultilayer Dynamic Interconnection Analysis (PRISM ) aims to harness data in order to identify risk factors across domains for catastrophic events such as the 1989 blackout – which impacted transportation, food, water, health and finance and racked up costs exceeding $2 billion. The National Science Foundation (NSF) funded the program and Ryan M. McGranaghan , Principal Data Scientist and Aerospace Engineering Scientist at ASTRA, LLC co-leads the project. ASTRA’s team of experts in fields of space weather and data science, combined with professionals in statistics, computer science, finance, energy, agriculture, ecology, hydrology, and climate, the PRISM effort will integrate data across different areas to improve risk prediction. “We want to quantify the risks that the worst-case scenarios present, and ultimately use that understanding to improve the resilience of our human-natural systems,” said McGranaghan, who is a principal investigator on the two-year, $2.42 million grant, which emerged from the NSF’s Harnessing the Data Revolution Big Idea activity. “Our approach is to identify systemic risks – those that tie together different domains and have the biggest spillover potential – and data-driven tools to better control them,”McGranaghan said. If systems had been in place to recognize the heightened risks caused by the snowstorm and the solar flare, the 1989 power outage may have been averted or at least minimized. Similarly, understanding the ways it affected systems such as health care and transportation could help policymakers plan a more effective response. The transdisciplinary approach is essential, something McGranaghan likes to describe as anti disciplinary, meaning the space between fields, because today’s world is composed of highly interconnected and interdependent systems, and no single expert is equipped to identify the signs of risk or the full impact of catastrophes. The key is to use data science to help integrate information to find patterns. “Our technologically-dependent society operates in a new environment, one with increasing complexity and scale, and requires convergence between disciplines to understand when critical systems are stressed and strained and to prepare effective and timely responses,” said McGranaghan. The researchers plan to assemble large datasets across sectors such as agriculture, climate and energy to create an interactive data library. Once they’ve developed this library, they’ll use cutting-edge data analysis to identify what they’ve called critical risk indicators – quantifiable information associated with risk exposure, particularly for potential catastrophes. They’ll also employ machine learning to look for anomalies in the data that might lead to new insights. The researchers will then focus their efforts on identifying risk interconnections, and systemically important risk indicators across the different domains, in order to both predict potential hazards and to lessen the possible system-wide losses once they’ve occurred. Members of the team shared that they plan to examine known risk indicators and apply data science to identify new ones. As part of the project, the researchers will work with stakeholders in the relevant fields, in hopes that policymakers would incorporate their findings. Their goal is to help create early warnings for catastrophes and improve preparedness for devastating events worldwide. Previous Next Jun 3, 2020

  • Orion Space Solutions Program Supports a More Resilient U.S. Power Grid

    Orion Space Solutions Program Supports a More Resilient U.S. Power Grid The Orion Space Solutions-led and National Science Foundation-funded Convergence Hub for the Exploration of Space Science (CHESS) project brings together critical cross-disciplinary knowledge and tools to address this challenge and enhance the grid’s resilience to space weather events. Louisville, CO, July 7, 2020—Given the U.S. power grid’s complexity and interconnection, ensuring 24/7/365 electrical power generation to the nation demands diverse expertise. Not widely known by the public, space weather poses a great threat to electrical grid health. The Orion Space Solutions-led and National Science Foundation-funded Convergence Hub for the Exploration of Space Science (CHESS ) project brings together critical cross-disciplinary knowledge and tools to address this challenge and enhance the grid’s resilience to space weather events. “The CHESS program will change how we monitor, protect, and make decisions about the power grid we rely on in our daily lives,” says Bill Baker, ASTRA Senior Vice President of Data Solutions. CHESS provides expertise, tools, and information from the space weather, geoscience, power utility, and data science communities to support decisions related to space-weather threats to the nation’s power grid. CHESS connects these communities, providing information to support utility managers’ decision making, and allowing space weather researchers to better explore space weather events triggering of power outages. In partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology, and UCLA, and a broad community of stakeholders, ASTRA has designed and developed the CHESS platform and will start to implement technology and knowledge sharing with various power utilities across North America. “CHESS is like Google Maps with predictive intelligence for the power grid, putting the power of awareness and prediction into the hands of those who need to keep the lights on for society,” says Dr. Ryan McGranaghan, Principle Data Scientist at ASTRA and CHESS principal investigator. “ASTRA is proud to be chosen by NSF to develop an intelligent data solution that could enhance forecasting of disruptive to the Earth’s power grid, with potential for catastrophic impact on human life,” McGranaghan says.

  • Orion Space Solutions supports CAPSTONE Program for NASA Moon Missions

    Orion Space Solutions supports CAPSTONE Program for NASA Moon Missions Orion’s Chip Scale Atomic Clock provides critical positioning and tracking data for the CAPSTONE Moon Mission Louisville, CO, July 18, 2022 —NASA launched its Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE) on June 28, as a part of the Artemis program, to study a specific orbit for the future Gateway lunar station. Led by Advanced Space, this mission is test driving orbital analysis that will enable NASA’s future exploration efforts. Orion Space Solutions (OSS) provides a critical satellite component that will support mission success. Space systems need reliable timing information when flying beyond well-understood orbits, into regions where GPS and other communication signals lose contact with Earth-based systems or control centers. Lacking the information provided by these standard communications, mission operators lose positioning and navigation knowledge and capabilities. The longer a system goes without updated information, the more likely it can drift away from its intended trajectory, resulting in higher potential for mission error or risk. To address this problem, OSS engineers developed the Chip Scale Atomic Clock, or CSAC, as an important part of the CAPSTONE experiment. CSAC is a precision clock able to provide critical positioning and timing data while the small satellite is in the near-rectilinear halo orbit, which is the planned orbit for the Gateway station to the moon on its future lunar mission. The low size, weight, and power of the CSAC system means it is easily integrated into CubeSats and other small satellites. Several OSS space-based programs use CSAC, giving the equipment flight-proven status. “OSS engineers and scientists develop space solutions that work,” says Mr. Erik Stromberg, OSS Senior Director of Special Programs. “With humans returning to the moon, CSAC’s ability to maintain positioning and timing data for any potential dropouts in signal are essential contributions to keeping astronauts and satellites safe for programs, such as CAPSTONE.” “CSAC will provide reliable timing information to maintain a highly accurate positioning indicator for when systems have a loss of communication or positioning for the CAPSTONE mission. While the halo orbit will not put the spacecraft behind the moon, allowing for stable communication back to Earth, no spacecraft has ever operated in the designated orbit for this mission before,” explains Mr. Gerald Thompson, Senior VP of Strategy. CAPSTONE is set to arrive at the moon in November, when it will begin its 6-month long primary mission. Previous Next Jul 17, 2022

DISPUTE RESOLUTION Informal Negotiations To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Use (each "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party. Binding Arbitration If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved through binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website: . Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, we will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in United States, Colorado. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in United States, Colorado, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) is excluded from these Terms of Use. In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. Restrictions The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. 14.
