ISOON is a semi-autonomous, remotely commandable solar patrol telescope for studies of solar activity in support of space weather specifications and forecasts. ISOON was originally planned to consist of a world-wide three-site network with high speed networking to a central command and analysis facility. Under USAF funding, the prototype unit is currently in operation, providing H-alpha, off-band, and continuum images. This paper briefly describes the ISOON system and its capabilities, analysis software, data archive, products, and its research and space weather support applications. Further information as well as real time images can be found on the ISOON web page at www.nso.edu/nsosp/isoon.
