called for a proactive development of a systems perspective to study the
upper atmosphere. It outlined six specific strategic thrusts intended to
guide the future of CEDAR research activities.
<b>We are requesting information from the CEDAR community about the current

further along achieving some goals than others? Where is there still work
to be done?
<b>The survey (<a href="https://surveys.illinois.edu/sec/1032135" target="_blank">https://surveys.illinois.edu/sec/1032135</a>) </b>is intended to be completed in
