Monday 14/11, 14:30-18:30

The ESA Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Programme supports networking, development and the ultimate utilization of European space weather (SWE) assets in order to provide timely space weather information, products and services to end users as well as user support. The SWE Service Network is centered around a number of Expert Service Centres (ESCs) and an overall Coordination Centre and helpdesk (SSCC).
During 2016, the Network has undergone an intensive development phase, in particular focussing on the five ESCs. This includes the incorporation of many new products along with essential work towards establishing the Expert Centres as part of an overall pre-operational framework which will form the basis for consistent and reliable service provision as the Network continues to develop.

Services are accessible via the SSA SWE Portal at

In this session the focus will be on the evolving SWE Network and its ability to respond to specific SWE service needs. The session is open to all and contributions from the wider space weather community are welcome. We encourage end users from different affected sectors to present their specific SWE service requirements.
