Space Weather 2018 Mission Definition

FDL 2018 space Weather challenges:

Challenge 1: Predicting solar spectral irradiance from SDO/AIA observations

The goal of this challenge is to develop an AI model which uses SDO/AIA images to predict solar spectral irradiance (SSI) a critical factor for determining the properties of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, which can significantly disturb the upper atmosphere of the Earth and increase atmospheric drag on orbiting satellites.

Challenge 2: Improve ionospheric models using GNSS/GPS data

By using large volumes of historic data that has been collected on GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) this challenge proposes to train an AI model to turn GNSS signal scintillation data into a high fidelity instrument for analyzing the state of the ionosphere and correlating that with space weather.
