Swarm, ESA's magnetic field mission, is scheduled for launch in July 2012. Being a constellation of three satellites with multiple instruments to survey the geomagnetic field and the near-Earth environment at best-ever resolution and accuracy, Swarm aims for a 4 years nominal operations phase. According to the ESA EO free and open data policy all validated data will be made available to users worldwide.
