Session 10 - Spacecraft operations and space weather

Dave Pitchford (SES), Richard Horne (BAS)
Thursday 17/11, 10:00-13:00

Spacecraft survivability – robustness to the Space Environment and its dynamism – Space Weather, is an important part of business for those planning, building and operating spacecraft.
This session is the latest in a series aiming to bring together the research, engineering and operations communities.
Topics to be covered include:
-Analysis of Space Weather events – declining phase electron enhancements and spacecraft charging.
-Evolving space missions – MEO and LEO constellations such as O3B & OneWeb, Electric Orbit Raising Missions driving evolving needs for data, models and forecasts.
-Hosted sensors for Space Weather – filling the gaps in forecasts and models.
