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.

On 17 September 2018 an improved version for both L1B and L2 Cat-2 Operational Processors was transferred into operations. We are in the process of publishing the entire datasets generated with the latest processor versions (L1B and L2 Cat-2 outputs with the following Product Baseline and File Counter: ORBATT 0401; MAGNET 0505; PLASMA 0501; ACCELE 0401; IBI 0301 ; FAC 0301; TEC 0301)

Due to a science packet corruption which occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Bravo, the VFM science data (at 50 Hz rate) were not received from approximately 10:00 UTC on 19 August to 07:10 UTC on 27 August 2018 when the VFM was restarted.

A gap in data acquired by the Electric Field Instrument (EFI) on the Swarm Charlie spacecraft occurred on 07 August 2018. The duration of this gap was from 14:46:31 to 14:53:12 UTC and was due to a gain map update.

Due to a test performed on the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) commanded in burst mode on board Swarm Alpha, the magnetic field intensity derived from the ASM in the MAGA_LR_1B and MAGA_CA_1B products is set to zero from 24 July 2018 at 14:44 UTC to 26 July 2018 at 07:00 UTC.
The Swarm A GPS receiver rebooted on 26 July 2018 at 05:07:02 UTC autonomously. The GPS receiver data and time synchronization were available again at 05:29:47 UTC. The satellite's orbit and attitude seem unaffected by the anomaly. While the investigation is ongoing, it seems that there is no impact on the good health of the GPS receiver.
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.

A team of researchers, supported under ESA's Basic Activities, has recently investigated a resourceful new method of monitoring space weather. They utilised the data from the Swarm and GOCE Earth Explorer missions, and from LISA Pathfinder to investigate whether platform magnetometer data could also be used for space weather diagnostics.
Modelling of non-gravitational forces such as drag or solar radiation pressure requires knowledge of the thermo-optical properties and geometry of the outer surfaces of the spacecraft. These are now provided in a memorandum and can be accessed here.
