About Predictive Science

Founded by Drs. Jon A. Linker, Zoran Mikić and Pete Riley in 2008, Predictive Science is an employee-owned company that delivers state-of-the-art scientific solutions. In addition to the scientists, we currently have a software/systems engineer, an office manager, an administrative assistant, and student interns. Our research programs focus on the development and applications of sophisticated magnetohydrodynamic models of the Sun's corona and heliosphere, in an effort to answer fundamental scientific questions about the physics of the Sun. Our long-term goal is to transition our models into operational codes that are capable of predicting space weather conditions with several days of advance warning. Our programs support a number of NASA missions, including Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) and Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), and are performed under the auspices of NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Air Force Office of Sponsored Research (AFOSR).
