The objective of the Space Weather Office is to provide owners and operators of critical spaceborne and ground-based infrastructure timely and accurate information that supports mitigation of the adverse impacts of space weather.

 

Space Situational Awareness - Space Weather

In order to achieve accurate and reliable space weather services, constant monitoring of the Sun and the space environment from a range of vantage points is needed, together with timely dissemination of reliable data to those needing the information.

Europe already has a wealth of expertise and assets providing high-quality scientific observations, results and models together with a number of space-weather products − processed, usable data − to customers in industry, government and research institutes.

The Space Weather Office is building on this foundation to develop a federated space-weather service-provision concept, avoiding duplication and ensuring that existing assets and resources play a key role in Europe’s Space Weather System.
