Swarm E (CASSIOPE) precise orbits and attitude data released

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.

Swarm Alpha: ASM instrument operating in burst mode from 24 November to 2 December 2019

29 November 2019

From 24 November to 2 December 2019, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Alpha was commanded in burst mode. This has temporarily caused the magnetic field intensity derived from the ASM and stored in MAGA_LR_1B and MAGA_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.

Swarm Bravo: L1B ASM data gap from 27 October to 4 November 2019

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.

Swarm Alpha: L1B ASM data gap from 22 to 30 September 2019

27 September 2019

From 22 to 30 September, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Alpha was commanded in burst mode.

Swarm non-gravitational acceleration and thermosphere density data reprocessed

Swarm Alpha: Data of 12 June 2019 partially recovered

24 July 2019

The data gap for the Swarm Alpha satellite between 10 and 12 June 2019 (see news published on 17 June 2019) has now been partially recovered.

Swarm Charlie: VFM issue on 15 and 16 July 2019

19 July 2019

An anomaly occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board the Swarm Charlie satellite between 14:09:06 on 15/07/2019 and 13:29:34 UTC on 16/07/2019.

Swarm Charlie: Data gaps on 15 and 16 July 2019

19 July 2019

Several tests were performed on the Swarm Charlie satellite on 15 July in order to investigate the anomaly that occurred on 28 April.

During these tests the instruments were switched off and on, causing data gaps for all the L0, L1A, L1B and L2-Cat2 products.
