SEPEM - Solar Energetic Particle Environment Modelling -BIRA/IASB

SEPEM Output Plots


The ESA Solar Energetic Particle Environment Modelling (SEPEM) project is currently under development and this presentation highlights the work done so far and upcoming developments. The full release of SEPEM will take place during the second half of 2010. The main objectives of SEPEM are:

  • Create new engineering models and tools to address current and future needs.
  • To simulate past events and future scenarios SEPEM moves beyond mission integrated fluence statistics to peak flux statistics and durations of high flux periods.
  • Integrate effects tools to allow calculation of single event upset rate and radiation background for a variety of scenarios.
  • Improve existing physics-based shock-particle propagation models to predict the expected event-time profiles at non-Earth locations [SOLPENCO2].
  • Creation of a standard solar energetic particle dataset.
  • Creation of a user-friendly webserver with access to the models being developed under this project.

ESABASE 2 - eta-max

ESABASE2, ESA's standard tool for space environment analysis was further enhanced by new analysis capabilities. In addition to the known capability for meteoroid and debris damage and risk assessment new features were added:
  • Sunlight application, providing the energy influx from the Sun, the planetary albedo, and the planetary infrared
  • Atmosphere/Ionosphere applications (the former Atomic Oxygen application with the latest atmosphere and ionosphere models)
  • Interface to COMOVA, the Contamination Analysis, Outgassing and Vent Analysis tool developed by ONERA for ESA.
