Europe already has a wealth of expertise and assets providing high-quality scientific observations, results and models in the domain of space weather, together with a growing number of space-weather ‘products’ – processed, usable data – which are being used by customers across Europe in industry, government and research institutes. ESA’s SSA Space Weather (SWE) Service Network builds firmly upon this foundation to implement a federated European Space Weather service provision concept, avoiding duplication and ensuring that these existing assets and resources play a key role in Europe’s new coordinated Space Weather Service provision system.

The Space Weather Service Network aims to provide timely and reliable space weather information to end users. Individual products, reports, toolkits and user support are grouped into targeted services according to the needs of user communities from spacecraft operators through to power system operators. The online component of the SWE Services can be accessed via the SWE Portal. These online services are complemented by the SWE Helpdesk which is available to respond to queries and requests for support from registered users.

The Space Weather Network is currently in an intensive development phase targeted at developing both service user-tailored interfaces and key models as well as other building blocks that will contribute to improving the accuracy of the information that can be provided to end-users.

During the Space Situationa Awareness Programme, the SWE Service Network was established on a test and demonstration basis. As such, service support was made available during normal office hours only. As part of the Space Safety Programme, the service provision system will be further developed and steps taken to transition the Network towards an operational framework, providing information to impacted users whenever it is most needed.
