Eric is a senior research associate at SWx TREC. Specializing in upper-atmospheric and ionospheric data analysis, theory, and modeling, Sutton has worked to improve the predictions most critical to the Space Situational Awareness Programme (SSA) and space traffic management of low-Earth orbiting assets. He is a proponent for using physics-based models to specify the state of the upper atmosphere and has tackled many technical challenges related to their implementation in an operational environment. Leading and participating in efforts to improve physics-based, upper-atmospheric models, their underlying data assimilative methods, and solar and geophysical condition forecasting, he strives to enable the next generation of orbit prediction algorithms for government, commercial, and academic users.
