In order to take advantage of the unique constellation A number of Level-2 data products will be offered by this consortium, All of the derived products will be available through the Swarm aspect of the Swarm mission, considerably advanced data analysis including various models of the core and lithospheric field, as well as Payload Data Ground Segment (PDGS), located at ESRIN, the ESA tools will need to be developed. Scientific use of data from the Swarm of the ionospheric and magnetospheric field. In addition, derived Centre for Earth Observation in Frascati, Italy. mission will also benefit significantly from derived products, the so- parameters like mantle conductivity, thermospheric mass density called Level-2 products, that take into account the features of the and winds, field-aligned currents, an ionospheric plasma bubble constellation. For this reason ESA has established the Swarm index, the ionospheric total electron content and the dayside “Satellite Constellation Application and Research Facility” (SCARF), equatorial zonal electrical field will be calculated. Following the end of in the form of a consortium of several research institutions. its 34-month development phase, this service is expected to be operational for a period of 5 years after the launch of the Swarm mission, which is scheduled for late 2013.
