Swarm Operational News
The Swarm document on the thermo-optical properties of the satellites provides tables and technical drawings for aerodynamic and radiation pressure modelling. In the new revision, the absorptivity of the "Beta Cloth" and the "White Paint" were updated to more accurate values. Download version 2.1 of the document.
As anticipated on 12 February, for Swarm Alpha and Charlie only, the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) scaling that changes with time, i.e., s_t, needs to be slightly adjusted starting from 01 January 2018 onward.
Due to an issue detected in the Swarm L1B data processing chain, the magnetic field intensity derived from the ASM instrument and stored in MAGx_LR_1B and MAGx_CA_1B products for Swarm Bravo is set to zero from 17 to 22 March 2020. This data gap will be recovered soon.
The COVID-19 pandemic is evolving rapidly all around the world and impacts strongly most European Countries. Therefore, when possible, the Swarm teams located in different European countries have been asked to work from home in order to limit contamination risks.
We would like to inform Swarm data users that the daily generation of EEF Level-2 product and their dissemination through the nominal folder has been restored.
We would like to inform Swarm data users that precise orbits and attitude quaternions for the year 2019 for the CASSIOPE/e-POP satellite are now available on the Swarm dissemination server in the following folders:
We would like to inform Swarm data users that an improved version of TII cross-track dataset (TIICT version 0201), previously delivered for Swarm Alpha and Bravo, is now available also for Swarm Charlie.
An issue was registered during the processing of the Swarm L1B Magnetic field data during 14 to 17 February 2020, which is when the ASM on-board this spacecraft was commanded in Burst mode.
An improved version of the TII cross-track dataset (TIICT version 0201) is now available.
12 February 2020
On 11 February an improved version for both L1B and L2 (FAC, IBI, and TEC) Operational Processors was transferred into operation.
24 January 2020
Due to an issue on-board the Swarm Bravo spacecraft, no telemetry data were retrieved from 17 January 13:43 UTC to 18 January 10:41 UTC.
10 January 2020
We would like to inform Swarm data users that an improved version of EEF Level-2 product (version 0202) is now available.
08 January 2020
Due to an anomaly on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Bravo, the VFM science data was partially received from 31 December at 05:09 UTC to 3 January at 13:27 UTC.
From 15 to 23 December, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Alpha was commanded in burst mode.
04 December 2019
Precise orbits for the year 2018 and attitude quaternions for the period from January 2014 to January 2019 were produced for the CASSIOPE/e-POP, which was incorporated as the fourth element of the Swarm constellation (Swarm-Echo) in 2018. These data sets are now available on the Swarm dissemination server.
29 November 2019
From 24 November to 2 December 2019, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Bravo was commanded in burst mode. This has temporarily caused the magnetic field intensity derived from the ASM and stored in MAGB_LR_1B and MAGB_CA_1B products to be set to zero from 24/11/2019, at 23:50 UTC to 02/12/2019 at 00:10 UTC. This data gap will be recovered very soon.
04 November 2019
Between the 27 October to 4 November, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Bravo was commanded in burst mode.
27 September 2019
From 22 to 30 September, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Alpha was commanded in burst mode.
