Swarm Operational News
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.
06 November 2017
With reference to the news published on 07 September 2017, we inform the Swarm users that the Swarm MAGx_LR_1B version 0502 has been extended for all Swarm spacecraft.
02 November 2017
We would like to inform Swarm users that due to the occurrence of an issue during the processing of the Swarm L1B MAGx_LR_1B data with Product Baseline and File Counter 0502, the Swarm Charlie VFM data for the time window from 01 to 31 May 2017 is erroneously set to zero.
10 October 2017
With reference to the news published on 04 May 2017 we are pleased to inform the Swarm users that the Swarm MAGA_LR_1B data for the days from 29 April to 01 May 2017 have been generated and now can be found in the ESA ftp server.
29 September 2017
We inform the Swarm users that the 16 Hz TII Cross-Track data flow dataset has been made available in the ESA ftp server covering the time interval from 01/01/2016 to 29/04/2017 for S/C A and B.
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.
18 September 2017
We are pleased to announce a new release of non-gravitational acceleration and thermosphere neutral density data, which was derived from the measurements of the GPS receiver.
14 September 2017
We inform the Swarm users that due to an anomaly that occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Bravo, i.e., VFM generation time of science packet frozen from 11/09/2017 03:54 UTC to 13/09/2017 12:24 UTC, the Swarm Level 0 data for this time window was not generated.
13 September 2017
With reference to the news published on 08 July 2016 we inform the Swarm users that the ASM-VFM Residual dataset produced for the investigations of the scalar residuals between the readings of the scalar magnetometer (ASM) and the vector magnetometer (VFM) has been extended until 31 August 2017 for all Swarm spacecraft.
13 September 2017
We are pleased to inform the Swarm users that the 4-days gap present in the Swarm Alpha MAGx_LR_1B data almost at the beginning of the mission, i.e., from the 14 to 17 December 2013, has been recovered.
07 September 2017
We are pleased to inform the Swarm users that an improved version of the MAGx_LR_1B products (Product Baseline and File Counter 0502) is now available in the "Advanced" folder of the ESA FTP server. This dataset covers the time window from the beginning of the mission to end August 2017 for all Swarm spacecraft.
We would like to inform the Swarm users that an Orbit Maintenance Manoeuvre was successfully performed on Swarm Alpha on 13 July 2017 starting at 14:17:55 UTC.
In relation to the previous communication we are pleased to inform you that the announced changes to the FTP layout are now effective as planned.
We inform the Swarm users that, starting from 05 July 2017, the Absolute Vertical TEC (VTEC) values and corresponding elevation angles will be available in the Swarm Level 2 Cat-2 TEC products.
We inform the Swarm Users that because of an issue during the retrieval of the telemetry data from Swarm Charlie, a data gap is present in the Level 1B production on 04 July 2017 from 06:02 to 13:43 UTC.
Following the previous communication, we are pleased to inform you that the announced changes to the FTP layout will be effective on 12 July 2017. Please be aware that some service disruptions might happen during that day.
27 June 2017
We are pleased to inform that, following a Swarm community recommendation, several changes will be introduced in the Swarm Dissemination (swarm-diss.eo.esa.int) FTP structure in early July 2017.
19 June 2017
We inform the Swarm users that because of an issue during the processing of the Swarm L1B Orbit and Attitude product of 03/06/2017 on Swarm Alpha and on 08/06/2017 on Swarm Bravo - i.e., available Level 0 data was not included in in the L1B processing - the L1B data production has been affected.
Due to an anomaly that occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Alpha, the VFM science data (at 50 Hz rate) was not received from 29/04/2017 11:22 UTC to 01/05/2017 08:05 UTC.
27 April 2017
The third release of the Swarm magnetic field models is now available to users. The new models are based on improved Swarm magnetometer data (MAGx_LR_1B data products, baseline 05) covering the period from launch to the end of 2016, i.e. one additional year in comparison to the previous release.
