Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere, and Climate
Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere, and Climate is a program designed to provide advances in meteorology, ionospheric research, climatology, and space weather by using GPS satellites in conjunction with low Earth orbiting satellites. The term "COSMIC" may refer to either the organization itself or the constellation of satellites. The constellation is a joint U.S.-Taiwanese project with major participants including the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, the National Science Foundation, the Naval Research Laboratory, the Air Force Research Laboratory on the U.S. side and the National Space Organization on the Taiwanese side. The total cost of the project is US$100 million, 80% of which is being provided by NSPO, and the remainder by various U.S. agencies. After experiencing several delays, the launch of the COSMIC satellite constellation atop a Minotaur launch vehicle from Vandenberg AFB occurred at 01:40 GMT, on April 15, 2006, despite heavy fog. The satellites, which orbit at an altitude of 500 miles, required over a year to move into the correct positions to provide full global coverage.
