Solar Interplanetary Electron Hazard Modelling

2010-01-29 10:41 by David Rodgers

A contract has been signed between ESA and cosine Science & Computing B.V. (Netherlands) in collaboration with Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey (UK) on 29 January 2010 for the modelling of interplanetary electron populations associated with hazardous effects on spacecraft.


The main objective is develop model(s) of high energy electrons in interplanetary space, with the emphasis on internal charging effects and instrument interference in near-Earth interplanetary space, including the L2 position chosen by several Cosmic Vision candidate missions.


The planned duration of the activity is 12 months. For further information, please contact David Rodgers.
