Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Title: Space Weather and ESA


1
Space Weather and ESA
  • E. Daly, A. Glover, A. Hilgers B.
    Arbesser-Rastburg
  • ESA Technical Directorate

2
Outline
  • Parts of ESA concerned
  • Activites of the parts
  • The future problems and prospects

3
ESA Parties involved
  • Technical Directorate
  • Operations
  • Science
  • Earth Observation
  • Policy Office
  • User directorates/ domains
  • Navigation
  • Telecommunications
  • Humans Spaceflight and Exploration
  • Science
  • Launchers
  • Earth Observation

4
Science
  • Many affected missions
  • Consideration of effects during design
  • Operations support
  • Science missions support space weather
  • The scientific results underpin space weather
  • Science data useful for applications
  • ESA participation in International Living with a
    Star

5
see ESA Report to ILWS China 2006 (google ESA
ILWS)
  • SOHO Extension to 2009 (and bonus?)
  • Ulysses 3rd polar pass to 2008
  • Cluster extension 2009
  • Double-Star ext. 2007
  • XMM, Rosetta, Integral (Rad. Mons.)

6
  • Proba-2
  • SWARM one mans noise is another mans data
  • Solar Orbiter (2015)
  • BepiColombo (2013)
  • Radiation Monitors (Herschel, Planck, LPF, etc)

7
Other future missions
  • New science missions subject to community call
  • ESA participation in Solar-B (ground station)
  • Proba-3
  • Formation flying demonstrator
  • Science element may be solar related
    (coronagraph)
  • Orbit may be of interest for plasma/particles
  • Technology reference studies (sci.esa.int)
  • Relevant to space weather (e.g.
    Crosscale,GeoSail, IHP, Solar Polar Orbiter)
  • Reflect perceived interests, but
  • Are mainly vehicles for identifying
    enabling technologies

8
Human Spaceflight and Exploration
9
  • Radiation environments and effects are major
    issues
  • Space weather radiation environment are
    important elements of technology roadmap

10
Earth Observation
  • SWARM Mission
  • EO satellites are affected
  • e.g. CRYOSAT GOCE affected by drag
  • Large complex instruments and data handling
    radiation concerns
  • Space Weather is on the borders of their domain
  • GMES Service-driven missions
  • Meteorological Missions (e.g. METOP carries the
    NOAA SEM sensor)

11
SWARM
  • Mission of the Living Planet Programme
  • 3-satellite Geomagnetic Field mission to study
    core dynamics and geodynamo processes, crustal
    magnetisation, and ocean circulation from low
    Earth orbit
  • Ionosphere-magnetosphere current systems and
    magnetic forcing of the upper atmosphere need to
    be derived and taken care of - one mans
    noise is another mans data
  • Launch in 2010
  • Electric Field Instrument (Ion Drift Meter)
    provided by CSA in collaboration with ESA
    Science Programme

12
Galileo
  • Galileo orbit passes through most intense part of
    outer radiation belt
  • high lifetime doses for constellation
  • Ionospheric effects on signals
  • GIOVE-A radiation monitor data under analysis
  • GIOVE-B launch due 2007 with radiation monitor
  • In-orbit Validation Phase (4 satellites) will
    carry monitors
  • Final constellation monitors TBD, but looks
    positive.

13
DGs Policy Office
  • Responsible for the General Studies Programme
  • looking at future programmes,
  • innovative approaches,
  • early stage mission studies
  • funded SWPP 2M internal costs ( 2M
    co-funded)
  • funded previous feasibility studies 1M
  • DG-P is considering ESAs future activities in
  • Surveillance
  • Situational Awareness
  • Cross-directorate strategy in preparation for
    ministerial conference 08 (new ideas)

14
Space Weather Pilot Project and Follow-On
  • SWPP is seen as highly successful
  • objective support investigation of maturity of
    the market
  • more than 20 CO-FUNDED services established
  • many operating/evolving beyond end of contracts
  • others emerging
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis (public/private data) needs
    to be evaluated in detail (esp. at level of the
    confidential data)
  • Internal Briefing in Preparation for Management
  • Products will be maintained e.g. SWENET and
    COST portal harmonization
  • This was the nominal end of the current
    commitment of the ESA General Studies Programme
  • Q1 Transition to what?
  • Q2 Evolutions in ESA landscape?

15
New ESA Networks in Engineering
  • Coordinate activities of ESA and member states
  • Network of Competences in Space Environments and
    Effects
  • Domain of radiation plasma environments and
    effects on space systems
  • Establish and implement a joint RD roadmap and
    implementation plan
  • Chair Philippe Perol (Head, Elec. Engineering
    Dept.)
  • Network of Experts on Propagation
  • Addresses both ionospheric and tropospheric
    propagation effects
  • Coordinates inputs to ITU
  • exchanges information on research activities
    funded under national or Framework budget, sets
    up collaborative experiments and provides for
    data exchange
  • Establish a set of strategic priorities.
  • Coordinator Bertram Arbesser-Rastburg

16
Technology RD
  • Under way
  • Solar energetic particle environment models
  • Engineering tools for radiation effects
    assessment
  • Mars radiation environments
  • Spacecraft-plasma interaction simulation
  • Space Environment Information System (Spenvis)
  • Space environment systems for operations support
  • Models for propagation
  • GALILEO-GIOVE data analysis
  • Radiation/energetic particle instruments and
    effects experiments
  • Planned
  • Space weather IT for space engineering
    application
  • Radiation belt engineering models
  • Jupiter radiation environments and effects
  • Radiation and plasma monitoring

18
Conclusions and Remarks
  • ESA has strong interest in space weather
  • As a user (technology effects are increasing)
  • Growing appreciation in user directorates
  • Sponsor of technology research and service
    development
  • Networks related to ESA technical domains
    established
  • Underpinning science
  • The scale of any future (broad) application
    programme TBD
  • Depends on case made (competitively)
  • National delegation views important
  • EU and other non-space actors roles important
  • Ministerial 2008 is a new window of opportunity
