|Session Chair:||Natasha Jackson-Booth|
This session will cover recent advances in active space experiments, especially ionospheric perturbations or other effects on the space environment actively produced by high-power RF waves, chemical releases, rocket exhaust, or other means. In addition to presentations of observations and measurements from recent or novel experiments, theoretical and modeling developments that advance theory beyond the prevailing qualitative and descriptive state toward quantitative and predictive capabilities will also be welcomed. Topics of interest include wave generation stimulated by or propagation modified by artificial effects. Presentations on technologies, such as RF sources or chemical reactions, which may enable new or improved applications in active space experimentation, are also sought.
