As part of its Space Safety Programme, the European Space Agency (ESA) is establishing a Space Weather Service Network to support end-users from a wide range of affected industries in mitigating the effects of Space Weather on their systems, reducing costs and improving reliability. In building this network, Space Weather products/tools are developed and federated in services that are suitable for operational implementation and importantly that meet end user needs.

            As part of our efforts to engage with end-users, we at the SSA Space Weather Coordination Center organize dedicated user support campaigns where we provide tailored Space Weather bulletins and dashboards for the user. Multiple campaigns have been set up for users in the Spacecraft Operations service. During these campaigns we work with the users in order to determine the format and content of a bulletin. In addition, products and tools from the ESA SSA SWE Service Network are tailored and combined to address the user’s specific needs.

            In this presentation we will highlight the general dashboard for satellite operations. This dashboard summarises information on the impact of Space Weather on satellites in different orbits around Earth and serves as a prototype for building more user specific tailored campaigns.
