Ionosphere Monitoring and Prediction Center

Completed Projects

In past, IMPC and its predecessor have been involved in a number of projects. A subset of these projects is presented here.


The Near Earth Space data infrastructure for e-science (ESPAS) project has built an e-Infrastructure that will help scientists and engineers to locate observational data from ground-based and space borne sensors and from models that can advance studies of the near-Earth space environment, and its adverse impact on advanced technologies.


The objective of the project "Advanced forecast for ensuring communications through space" (AFFECTS), which is led by the Georg-August Universität Göttingen, is to set up a high quality forecast system for predicting strong space weather effects. 


The main goal of MONitoring of the Ionosphere by innovative Techniques, coordinated Observations and Resources (MONITOR) is to design, develop, deploy and operate a system for collection, processing and archiving of ionospheric observation data. 


The project “Processing Russian and European EARTH observations for earthQUAKE precursors Studies" (PRE-EARTHQUAKES) intends to commit EU and Russian researchers to integrate different observational data and to improve, by cross validating, their methodologies.


Training Research and Applications Network to Support the Mitigation of Ionospheric Threats (TRANSMIT) did exploit the existing specialised European science base and take advantage of insight and full commitment from European industry and relevant end users. TRANSMIT focuses on the training that is urgently needed to establish a real time system that will address a technological issue of importance to a range of European services and applications.
