Space Environments and Effects (SEE) Program

The Space Environments and Effects (SEE) Program collected, developed, and disseminated the SEE-related technologies required to design, manufacture and operate more reliable, cost-effective spacecraft for the government and commercial sectors.


In partnership with industry, academia, and other government agencies, the SEE Program defined the space environments and advocated technology development to accommodate or mitigate these harmful environments on spacecraft; hence the technology is transferred to spacecraft developers for incorporation in design.


The SEE Program established new plateaus of technical capability to reduce cost of NASA's science and exploration missions which enables new and more challenging missions.
