The Space Weather Operations, Research, and Mitigation (SWORM) Subcommittee is a Federal interagency coordinating body of the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources, and Sustainability (CENRS). The CENRS, organized under the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), advises and assists the National Science and Technology Council. The SWORM coordinates Federal Government departments and agencies to meet the goals and objectives specified in the National Space Weather Strategy and the activities defined in the Space Weather Action Plan, both of which were released in October 2015.
