Title Nano Satellite Beacons for Space Weather Monitoring: Final Report
Abstract This ESA-funded study has assessed the opportunities for using nanosats to monitor key space weather parameters. This started with a review of space weather measurement requirements and of the likely capabilities of nanosat technology to address those requirements (including using of Micro- and Nano-Technology). The outcome was a set of space weather nanosat constellations, each of which addresses a focused set of measurement requirements. These constellations were then analysed to develop an outline concept for each case. The study also looked at the prospects for using nanosats in space weather monitoring and has provided a set of thirteen recommendations on how to bring those prospects to fruition.
