Dr. Carl Shneider joins Mission Space R&D Project with the University of Luxembourg

Mission Space announce that Dr. Carl Shneider has joined it’s R&D Project with the University of Luxembourg. Dr. Shneider has expertise in Space Weather and Deep Learning and works on improving the forecast accuracy of geomagnetic events. Dr. Shneider contributes to the long-term vision of building a space weather research excellence centre in Luxembourg.

Mission Space system utilizes scientific and operational data from ground and space, including its detectors, to enhance existing data flows, state-of-the-art research models, and a distributed system of information and modeling that provides robustness.

The main driver of space weather is the Sun. Solar activity and the resulting space weather vary day-to-day, seasonally, and over multi-year cycles. Irregular solar activity, including explosive eruptions called solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), can have a significant impact on the near-Earth space environment.

While better design can help protect satellites, test facilities cannot fully replicate the space environment, and unexpected environmental sensitivities still occur that can cause anomalies. Therefore, some measure of forecasting and warning of the space radiation environment is highly desirable. A reliable forecasting system like Mission Space’s has several benefits:
