1 European Digital Upper Atmosphere Server DIAS A project co-funded by the eContent programme of the European Commission

2 Overview The project aims at the development of a European digital data collection on the state of the upper atmosphere and on the efficient promotion of this collection to the world market.

3  To develop a pan-European digital data collection on the state of the upper atmosphere based on historical data collections and on the real-time information provided by several European ionospheric stations.  To develop a new digital server for the management and distribution of this collection, based on cutting edge technologies.  To develop, through the collaboration of the private sector companies that belong to DIAS consortium, all necessary actions for the efficient promotion of this pan-European digital data collection and new added value products based on the raw data, to the European and worldwide market. Objectives

5 Why Europe needs DIAS? Currently, the existing digital European stations operate independently  Currently, the existing digital European stations operate independently  This independent operation creates several barriers for transforming this information into usable data, products and services,failing to address the increased market demands for a unified collection of historical and real time upper-atmosphere data, especially nowcast and forecast services for the European region.  This independent operation creates several barriers for transforming this information into usable data, products and services, failing to address the increased market demands for a unified collection of historical and real time upper-atmosphere data, especially nowcast and forecast services for the European region.  DIAS will overcome this problem by operating a system competitive to those that exist already for Australia and the US.

6 Groups of potential users of DIAS products and services  Aviation industry (civil and military)  Defense  HF communication Systems  Satellite operators  Commercial satellite designers  Navigation Systems  Ground-based systems managers and operators  Upper atmosphere researchers  Seismic hazards researchers
