Space Environment Technologies and it's partners offer expertise that includes the following models and data (See: Space Environment Definitions)

  • SIP - or solar, ionosphere, and thermosphere users, the Solar Irradiance Platform is a standalone application that operates on any machine and produces the variable, full solar spectrum along with many solar indices for historical, nowcast, and forecast time frames.

  • MAPS - or magnetic index users, the Magnetosphere Alert and Prediction System is under development and initially will provide a realtime and forecast USGS Dst index.

  • GAPS – for GEO satellite system users, the Geosynchronous Alert and Prediction System provides realtime and forecast sunlight and shade surface charging conditions and deep dielectric discharge probabilities.

  • LAPS – for LEO satellite system users, the LEO Alert and Prediction System initially provides the realtime JB2008 thermosphere densities.

  • SODA – for LEO satellite system users, the Satellite Orbital Drag Applications provides information on satellite drag issues.

  • CAPS – for communication and satcom users, the Communication Alert and Prediction System provides realtime and forecast HF communication, MUF(3000), and foF2 global and regional conditions along with the S4 scintillation index forecast for 6 hours.

  • RAPS – for aviation users, the Radiation Alert and Prediction System is under development and initially will provide a realtime dose and dose equivalent for radiation at aviation altitudes that is created by cosmic rays and solar energetic particles.
