What’s the latest frontier for the aviation industry? Space weather. 

The scientific data available on how space weather impacts avionics is still in development; the industry is currently at a similar level of understanding as with terrestrial weather back in the 1970s. 

That’s why The Weather Company’s Space Weather Task Force is dedicated to advancing this knowledge base. We work closely with the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) to help aviation professionals navigate its immediate (and currently recognized) effects on airline operations such as communication blackouts caused by sunspots, GPS malfunctions created by geomagnetic storms, or solar radiation exposure to passengers and crew.

Recently, we hosted an exclusive webinar to share how our aviation weather experts handle communication on space weather and its current impacts. We also discuss how The Weather Company is continually innovating and improving these communications.

Check out the recording below to get more info about how we’re tackling space weather, one event at a time.

In this webinar, you’ll discover:

  • A refresher on space weather’s impact
  • The way we obtain space weather data from SWPC
  • How we communicate space weather events to airlines
  • Our plans for innovating in this field
  • A helpful Q & A session with attendees

If your airline experiences any effect of space weather, let us know. Your input may help revolutionize the understanding of this phenomena – for your friends at The Weather Company, SWPC, and the world at large.
