Whitepaper #073 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: space weather applications. Additional topics: space-based missions/projects.
The current operational dimension available for space weather analysis and operations is not suitable for deep space exploration. The initial step is to establish multiple observational points that will improve the current analysis/modeling capabilities. We summarize the value of multiple observational points, outline the current gaps, and propose ideas for missions that will address these gaps.
