Title Nano satellite beacons for space weather monitoring
Abstract This ESA-funded study, which started in November 2004, is investigating how current and emerging concepts for nanosats may be used to monitor space weather conditions and provide improved access to data needed for space weather services. The study has reviewed present and future micro and nano-technology developments that could be used to implement space weather monitoring by nanosats. It has also has established a set of space weather measurement requirements appropriate to nanosats solutions and developed a set of instrument and spacecraft solutions to address those requirements. These are now subject of system and mission analysis to derive costs for programme development, operation and maintenance over a ten-year period. As a last step the study will review the results of the previous stages and develop a report on the prospects for a space weather nanosat programme and recommendations on the measures needed to enable implementation of such a programme. To support this step a small workshop was held at ESTEC following the MNT Round Table.
