SWWT & Space Environments and Effects Network of Technical Competences (SEENoTC) Interactions A.Glover, A. Hilgers, E. Daly M. Hapgood, A. Sicard, K. Ryden
Goals: –to reinforce the coordination of existing and planned space environments and effects related activities in Europe, –implementation of a coherent European programme of activities in the domain, Domain: –energetic particle radiation and its effects on systems, payloads and humans; –natural and induced plasma environments and their interactions with spacecraft, and resulting effects on systems and payloads –Explicitly excluded are space debris, micrometeoroid and thermal environments. –Explicitly included are space weather effects on spacecraft (and launchers) Overview of SEENoTC Responsibilities
Organisation Working Group –National representatives responsible for collecting inputs from communities –Responsible for drawing up roadmaps and identifying areas for coordination and financial support –SWWT Chairman is a member of the WG, responsible for making recommendations from this community. AG deputises where MH is unavailable. Steering Board –National representatives from agencies and funding bodies –Approve roadmaps annually –Report to THAG (Technology Harmonisation Advisory Group) which reports to ESAs IPC (Industrial Policy Committee) Aims to really organise activities at a European level & not just provide forum for information exchange Limited annual budget available to support activities that build on the main coordination goals of the network
Current Membership Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, UK, Eurospace. Other member states have expressed interest (…) Several current representatives on SEENoTC WG also involved in SWWT Formal liaisons with: SWWT, SPINE, RWG and GEANT-4 See: intro.htmlhttp://space-env.esa.int/seenotc- intro.html
Current Example Roadmap Items of Relevance for SWWT Modelling: –…. Tools: –.... Monitoring –….
SWWT Interaction and Recommendations Need to clarify best means of interaction between SWWT and SEENoTC WG SLA Envt. Topical group forms a logical focus for: –highlighting SEENoTC relevant activities (in all member states) –making recommendations for studies/issues SEENoTC should adopt as part of workplans –promotion of SEENoTC in member states that have not yet agreed to join the network (possibly through lack of visibility of activities at working level) In addition, broader SWWT activities also of interest e.g. EU/FP proposals with space weather effects on s/c relevance SEENoTC WG meets 4x/year plus 1 topical workshop SWWT report at each meeting: put together by MH and SLA-TG (AS & KR)
