    * indicates required

The TechTIDE project “Warning and Mitigation Technologies for Travelling Ionospheric Disturbances Effects” ( funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme, is organizing the 1st TechTIDE User Workshop in the Neustrelitz site of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), on 15 May 2019.

This event shall bring together users and developers of Travelling Ionospheric Disturbances (TID) monitoring and warnings. The first release of the TechTIDE system will be demonstrated. Users are invited to present their applications and explain the impact and mitigation of TID effects in their systems. Following user contributions addressing ionosphere impact are anticipated:

  • RTK services
  • Radio astronomy
  • Radio communication and geolocation applications
  • GBAS & SBAS applications

Deadline for abstract submission is 15 March 2019. Please visit the web site for more information about the venue, the registration, the abstract submission and the detailed programme.
