From the Document: "Space weather comprises a set of naturally occurring phenomena that have the potential to adversely affect critical functions, assets, and operations in space and on Earth. Extreme space weather events can degrade or damage critical infrastructures, which may result in direct or cascading failures across key services such as electric power, communications, water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Preparing for space weather events will help protect infrastructure and activities vital to national security and the economy of the United States. [...] This National Space Weather Strategy and Action Plan (hereafter referred to as the Strategy and Action Plan) identifies key objectives and activities that will improve national preparedness for space weather events over the next 10 years. It leverages existing national efforts and seeks to align ongoing and future space weather activities to increase associated Federal Government efficiency and to enhance American innovation."
