Infrastructure or equipment

The PITHIA-NRF DLR team, operates prototype systems for monitoring and predicting ionospheric characteristics and ionospheric irregularities, based on observations received from the high rate (50 Hz) GNSS NetworkEVNet (Experimentation and Validation Network) and the Global Ionospheric Flare Detection System (GIFDS). Data and Services areprovided via the Ionosphere Monitoring and Prediction Center (IMPC, of DLR. The IMPC contributes to awareness and mitigation of ionospheric impacts on technology with near real-time ionosphere monitoring, modelling the ionosphere, prediction of ionospheric conditions, warning messages to users, data delivery services, Education and public outreach.
