Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR)

Infrastructure or equipment
DLR is operating the “Ionosphere Monitoring and Prediction Center” (IMPC, http://impc.dlr.de) which is providing specific space weather information, in particular now- and forecast of the ionospheric state, to enable improvement of the accuracy and reliability of impacted communication and navigation systems. With IMPC, DLR maintains the infrastructure (for data processing, archiving and dissemination) and know-how for a near-real time ionosphere data center.
Being a member of the solar wind near real-time network, DLR operates as a ground station for the solar wind data of the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) and Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) satellites. In this position, DLR obtains advanced access to the solar wind data.
A Data Information and Management System (DIMS) which was developed by DFD staff and is being operated by the EOC since the year 2000 faces the challenge of providing generic multi-mission system modules which can be extended and customized for upcoming EO missions. Additional functionality such as sophisticated value-adding and cross-mission production workflows, ordering of future acquisitions, data subscription, near real-time delivery and online data access services are developed and configured to meet concrete mission requirements.
DLR’s high-rate GNSS receiver chain is controlled by the so called Experimentation and Verification Network (EVnet). The EVnet is an infrastructure component for the near-real-time reception, processing and distribution of any kind of GNSS data to the EVnet user community.
