e-POP Becomes Fourth Member of Swarm Constellation


We are pleased to announce that CASSIOPE/e-POP has become part of the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Swarm mission, via the Third Party Mission programme at ESA. This new four-year partnership will allow e-POP to collect valuable space weather data at a rate 3-4 times greater than has been done previously. CASSIOPE/e-POP will join the Swarm constellation as “Swarm Echo”, or simply “Swarm E”, joining Swarm Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. The combined mission will provide greatly improved opportunities for collection and analysis of space weather data in low-Earth orbit for the foreseeable future.
