Fifteenth European Space Weather Week
November 5 - 9, 2018, Leuven, Belgium

Session 4 - Aviation Meets Space Weather - Roadmap Towards Space Weather Services for Aviation

Marcin Latocha (Seibersdorf Laboratories), Erwin De Donder (BIRA-IASB)
Monday 5/11, 15:45-17:15

We aim to enhance a roadmap for a space weather service for aviation. We emphasize user-oriented approach intending to present user needs, practical user’s solutions for dealing with space weather effects, recommendations and legal regulations, and current trends in aviation operation due to space weather. We invite pilots, flight dispatchers, airline operators, aviation organizations, regulatory bodies, engineers and scientists to support dialog between users and service developers.

KEYWORDS - Services for aviation, space weather effects on aviation, radiation, radiation protection, avionics errors, ionospheric disturbances, aircraft communication and navigation signals
