ESA Swarm constellation (Copyright: ESA/ATG Medialab)

Swarm is the first ESA constellation mission of three satellites for Earth observation, each equipped with a set of Absolute Scalar Magnetometer, Vector Field Magnetometer, Star Tracker, Electric Field Instrument, GPS Receiver and Accelerometer (see the link for more information).

As a partner of ESA, the Swarm team at Institut für Erdmessung develops designated software tools and contributes to the accelerometer data pre-processing. Recently, three batches of the official Swarm C data products were generated and released on the ESA Payload Data Ground Segment (PDGS) server: non-gravitational accelerations (ACCCCAL_2_ product), disturbance data (ACCCDISi2_ product) and data quality validation reports (ACCCVAL_2_ product) for the period from 19 July 2014 to 27 April 2016.
