Space Weather User Needs for the Mediterranean Region



Space Weather (SWE) is widely recognized as a major hazard for infrastructures and human life. There is a large SWE user community operating in the Mediterranean region that requires accurate and timely space weather information. The project SWE-MED, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) within the Space Situational Awareness (SSA) programme, aims to identify how the SSA SWE segment customer requirements baseline needs to be enhanced and tailored to best meet the needs of end users operating in the Mediterranean region. To achieve this, a user consultation exercise will be performed including workshops in five countries of the Mediterranean region: France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. The targeted sectors include communication and navigation, offshore resource exploration/exploitation, power system operation, pipeline operation, railway operation, aviation, shipping, logistics, space surveillance and insurance.
