This announcement is to solicit further ideas for "New data products and services" for enhancing the outcome of the European Space Agency's satellite constellation mission Swarm.
19 October 2018
ESA is pleased to announce a new opportunity for the Swarm community to engage in research dealing with Core field signals in the Swarm measurements, in conjunction with other terrestrial and satellite data and to improve models (numerical/physical) of the rapid core dynamics.
ESA is pleased to announce an opportunity for the Swarm community to engage in research dealing with the coupling mechanisms and interactions between the upper and lower parts of the Earth's atmosphere.
We invite abstract submissions for the "New and Emerging Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere Coupling Science from Remote and In Situ Spacecraft Measurements: The First 5 Years of Swarm" session at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting which will take place from 10 to 14 December in Washington D.C.
The abstract deadline is 1 August 2018 at 23:59 EDT so act soon to submit your paper.
ESA has started a process to improve the Earth Observation data distribution services, aiming at facilitating access to data and information for the end users, initially by shortening the access path and reviewing authentication and authorisation processes.
22 December 2017
We take the opportunity to thank the Swarm user community for the excellent collaboration in 2017 and during the first four years of the Swarm mission.
22 November 2017
Exactly four years ago a Rockot launch vehicle carrying the three precious Swarm satellites blasted off from the launch site in Plesetsk. Since then our mission has been continuously collecting ground-breaking data on the various components of the magnetic field and on the near-Earth environment and their dynamics.
20 November 2017
Timely placed a few days in advance of Swarm's fourth anniversary in space, ESA Member States participating to the Earth Observation Envelope Programme have given a nice birthday present to our mission.
04 October 2017
ESA is offering over 100 opportunities for industry, start-ups and scientific institutions to develop innovative ideas that bring Earth observation science closer to society.
19 September 2017
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Iowa seeks to appoint a post-doctoral researcher to join a dynamic and expanding group of space physics researchers. Amongst other sources, the post-holder will be using Swarm mission data to aid in studies of the Earth's magnetic field.

The beautiful town of Banff in Canada was the setting for one of ESA's most important scientific conferences of 2017. In March scientists convened to discuss the latest results coming from two of ESA's Earth Explorer missions: Swarm and CryoSat.
01 February 2017
A space debris avoidance manoeuvre planned for ESA's Swarm mission proved unnecessary last week, but the close encounter highlighted the growing risk from space debris.
25 January 2017
The orbital manoeuvre planned for 25 January has been cancelled following assessments which concluded no risk was posed to the satellite.
24 January 2017
The Space Debris Office at ESOC have updated their conjunction alert based on the on-going Swarm manoeuvre planning and the news is positive.
24 January 2017
For the past few days, experts from ESA's Space Debris Office at ESOC in Darmstadt, Germany, have been assessing a conjunction (read: collision) forecast issued by the US armed forces' Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) located at Vandenberg Air Force base in California.
07 May 2014
Although they were launched only five months ago, ESA's trio of Swarm satellites are already delivering results with a precision that took earlier missions 10 years to achieve.
06 February 2014
Some tricky manoeuvres are now under way to steer ESA's trio of Swarm satellites into their respective orbits so that they can start delivering the best-ever survey of our magnetic field.
26 November 2013
Reaching a significant milestone for ESA's magnetic field mission, the Swarm satellites have completed the critical first phase of their new mission.
