Space Vehicle Operation Center

The Space Vehicle Operation Center handles the remote operation of WNISAT-1, and started using the compact satellite to monitor geomagnetic activity from 2014 following its successful launch at the end of 2013 from Russia.
Disruptions in the Earth’s magnetosphere caused by solar flares interfere with communications and power systems on land and especially aboard aircraft. Data from WNISAT-1 is the first step toward developing more accurate geomagnetic storm detection and a service menu that supports flight operations in the North Pole where geomagnetic activity is concentrated.

Data from WNISAT-1 is available for anyone to see at the SVOC website
