Welcome to the SPACECAST web site, a resource providing support for satellite operators, designers and insurers, and information for the general public.
SPACECAST is a Collaborative Project funded by the European Union Framework 7 programme to help protect satellites on orbit by modelling and forecasting particle radiation.
The SPACECAST project finished in 2014 but the forecasting element was
continued in the EU
project 2014–2017. The forecasting
element was then transitioned into a prototype forecasting system for
the European Space Agency and since 2019 can be accessed via the ESA
space weather web portal as Satellite Risk Prediction and Radiation
The SPACECAST real time environment and effects plots are no longer
produced. The magnetometer data plots (real time and archive) are still
available from the left-hand menu, combining ground magnetometer data
from the BAS Antarctic Halley station, GOES magnetometer and electron
flux data, and solar wind and magnetic indices.
