Fourteenth European Space Weather Week
Nov 27 - Dec 1, 2017, Ostend, Belgium

Session 12 - Enhanced Space Weather Monitoring System (LAGRANGE MISSIONS & D3S)

Stefan Kraft (ESA - ESOC); Steven W. Clarke (NASA)
Thursday 30/11, 9:45 - 13:00

KEYWORDS - instruments, hosted payloads, satellite systems, distributed SWE sensor system, Lagrange missions

Observation of the Sun’s activity and its interaction with the Earth is of vital interest to mankind since it enables awareness of space weather conditions and permits assessment, forecasting and the mitigation of potential hazardous impacts on ground based, airborne and space borne sensitive infrastructure. ESA and its partners are working on the realisation of an enhanced and more comprehensive observational system that is expected to enable future improved services with longer warning times, better understanding and modelling of the environment. The foreseen measurement system is based on 3 elements namely (1) Ground Observations, (2) a Distributed Space Weather Sensor System (D3S), and (3) satellite systems positioned in the Lagrange points L1 and L5. In this session we call for submissions related to developments and studies underway for Space Weather Missions either positioned in L1 and/or L5 or in the Earth environment. Topics are therefore mission concepts, satellite systems, instrumentation and related precursors that are suitable to become part of a future operational enhanced space weather monitoring system. In order to stimulate and foster collaborations, we invite also contributions from our international partners.
