This activity will focus on development and implementation of an advanced space weather application utilising a range of modelling approaches to provide a complete picture of current and expected environmental conditions and predicted effects on spacecraft hardware for a given orbit. The activity will build on the SWE customer requirements baseline coupled with priorities identified through extensive consultation with end users during SSA Period 2 and the extended Space Radiation product catalogue available via the SWE Service Network. This activity is foreseen to include a particular focus on real-time specification and forecasting of the radiation environment in Earth orbit and predicted effects, enabling the user to visualise these data in combination with his/her own telemetry data and set dedicated thresholds for alerting.
