SWWT Space Situational Awareness Briefing for SWWT topic groups Mike Hapgood Chair, ESA Space Weather Working Team
SWWT BACKGROUND Space Situation Awareness is a concept that reflects our increasing dependence on space systems – telecom, navigation, surveillance, etc. Originates from US military – but civilian systems are equally vulnerable. Europe needs to develop both policy and capacity. ESA developing proposal for 2008 MC. This is seen to have three axes: –Survey, Tracking, –Imaging –Space weather (space environment monitoring)
SWWT Recent progress SWWT /SB convened meeting in Paris, 3 October. Attended by reps from many ESA Member States Key outputs: –SWWT Chair to join ESA SSA User Group (Paris, 21 November) –AG/MH to identify SpW target areas for SSA and develop scenarios for SpW services (central node? competence centres?) –Solicit input from SB members on national data policies and how these could impact a Space Weather element of a SSA proposal. –Explore interaction with LOFAR project (TEC data?)
SWWT Work in progress Mapping SpW measurement requirements to SSA relevance – see following slides Mapping SWENET services to SSA relevance Scenarios for SSA services: SWENET, CSDS Explore national data policies? LOFAR – phase calibration for radio astronomy: –source of TEC data? –user of ionospheric models?
SWWT Mapping of space weather measurement requirements to three proposed levels of SSA relevance. The requirements derived from ESA space weather feasibility studies led by Alcatel and RAL in 2000/1 –space-based measurements - from recent RAL consolidation of both 2000/1 studies –ground-based measurements - from RAL study –Both have traceability to the common user requirements developed by RAL and Alcatel SpW measurements for SSA
SWWT Ground-based measurements What Euro resources can contribute?
SWWT Space-based measurements What Euro resources can contribute?
