Session - Space Weather, Spacecraft Operations and Spacecraft Anomalies

C. Armiens, R. Horne, T. Onsager, D. Pitchford

Space Weather and the space environment are important issues for a spacecraft operator; from cradle - to - grave, the effects are considered and encountered during the design, build and operation of a spacecraft. This session is a coming together of the user and research communities. Space industry participants are encouraged to discuss their experiences of Space Weather and their end-user needs for data and services. The research community is asked to showcase work directed at this important user community. Topics to be covered include:

- The analysis of significant Space Weather events.
- Modelling and forecasting to support spacecraft operations.
- Hosted sensors as assets for both the user and research communities.
- Emerging challenges due to innovative technology and mission concepts.
- Spacecraft anomaly analysis and statistics.
- Spacecraft robustness and Space Weather events - would a severe Space Weather event today result in more or less disruption than the Halloween storm period?
