Sondrestrom Research Facility in Greenland during Aurora Borealis display (also known as Northern Lights)

SRI has conducted pioneering atmospheric research and has built advanced radar facilities since the 1950s. Information provided by SRI scientists at key installations helped keep the U.S. safe during the Cold War. In the 1970s, we established the first incoherent scatter radar facility in an auroral zone.

Today, data from SRI-operated radar research facilities in various locations are used by hundreds of scientists around the world, and dozens of researchers and students visit the sites each year. Research includes space weather, global climate change, information technology, and spacecraft communications.
