Open Call for Ideas for Swarm “New data products and Services"

06 May 2019

This announcement is to solicit further ideas for "New data products and services" for enhancing the outcome of the European Space Agency's satellite mission Swarm.

This call is directed at further enhancing the return on investment of the Swarm mission, now including a fourth satellite: Swarm Echo, also known as CASSIOPE/E-POP. In particular, we invite ideas that combine Swarm measurements with data from other satellite missions or ground based observations. While the call is not targeting basic scientific research in itself, the intention is to attract ideas for data products or services which  have the potential to further support the science objectives of Swarm.

New data products may become part of the Swarm data distribution, and possibly the virtual research services VirES for Swarm, open and available to all.

Interested individuals or groups are encouraged to submit new Swarm product/service ideas by 30th June 2019.

Please read the full call text.

The review by the Swarm DISC Advisory Board (DAB) will assess the scientific value, level of maturity and the level of validation of the new product/service, and  provide a consolidated recommendation to Swarm DISC and ESA for further progression of  promising topics through open Invitations to Tender, workshops or other means.

Please note that the present call for ideas does not imply that a contract will necessarily be placed.

Any questions can be directed to
