Gravitational Wave SAG
The goal of the Gravitational Wave Science Analysis Group (GWSAG) is to provide quantitative metrics and assessments to NASA in regard to a future Gravitational Wave mission. Specifically, the GWSAG will
- Track and analyze evolving science goals and requirements, especially as our understanding of three standard sources of gravitational waves (SMBH, EMRI, GB) continues to improve.
- Support mission studies and concept development for future space-based gravitational wave observatories, including where cost savings are sought and/or new classes of sources are to be considered (e.g., stochastic GW background from the Big Bang).
- Analyze technology development and prioritization plans with respect to redefined science goals and the evolution of mission concepts (i.e., the GWSAG will aid the PhysPAG in analyzing technology needs).
- Advocate for gravitational wave astrophysics and astronomy and explain the importance of this new field to the wider scientific community and also to the public.
The GWSAG is open to all members of the community.
