ABOUT
THE
PROGRAM

CHESS is a National Science Foundation Convergence Accelerator Project that is progressing societal resilience to space weather.

CHESS is focused on one of the most important and immediate impacts of space weather disturbances: disruptive and potentially catastrophic induced currents in the electric power grid known as geomagnetically induced currents (GICs).

We serve:

  • Bulk power system operators, planners, and designers;

  • Power system decision makers; and

  • Space weather researchers

  • Facebook - White Circle
  • LinkedIn - White Circle
  • Twitter - White Circle
