Space Weather and Navigation Systems (SWANS)
Space Weather phenomena are often the origin of disturbed ionospheric conditions which can strongly affect the performances of technological systems based on radio waves. The space weather service provided here is an example of the fruitful cooperation between RMI and ROB in the frame of the Belgian Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence (STCE).
Most measurements are carried out at the RMI Geophysical Centre in Dourbes (CPG). The Royal Observatory (ROB) provides the vertical TEC value extracted from the ROB TEC maps. Several developments have already been released and are now available here. We hope the offered services will be of help to a broad range of users - scientists, students, radio/satellite operators, radio amateurs, etc.
