SPACESTORM Satellite Risk Indicators

This page provides a summary of the risk of damage to satellites due to space weather. It provides a risk indicator for each of the four main hazards and 4 representative orbits. The current hazard risk is indicated by a colour display and number 1–4 where 4 is the highest risk. Click in any effects box to view and download detailed plots and output files. Click on the effects header line columns to read more on the definition of the risk indicators.

The risk indicators have been calculated by combining satellite data with the BAS radiation belt model and radiation effects models developed under contract by the European Space Agency.
