Space Environment Technologies (SET) is headquartered in Pacific Palisades, California with team members in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, Utah, and Maine.
SET was organized in 2001 as a sole proprietorship and then converted to a Limited Liability Corporation in 2005 under the laws of the State of California.

At the same time, the Space Weather Division (SWD) was formed along with a Research Associates (RA) division for independent researchers affiliated with SET. In 2006 a research group from the University of Southern California led by Prof. D. Shemansky joined SET to form the Planetary and Space Sciences Division (PSSD).
In 2005, SET formed a strategic partnership with EXPI to produce commercial space weather products. In 2009, SET formed a strategic partnership with Utah State University, where Dr. Tobiska additionally took a position as the USU Space Weather Center Director. In 2019, SET joined the University of Colorado Boulder’s Space Weather Technology, Research and Education Center (SWx-TREC) inational center of excellence as an industry partner. In 2020, SET and West Virginia University signed a SET HASDM Database Use Agreement to further scientific research.
