Alcantara initiativelogo ESA

Alcantara Ionospheric ground based monitoring network in low latitude regions: Africa
Financed by: European Space Agency (ESA)
ICTP role: to improve the understanding, characterisation, monitoring and forecasting
of the ionosphere in Equatorial Africa in order to benefit users from Global Navigation
Satellite Services, Satellite Telecommunications, scientific research and other applications.

Partnership with Boston College logo BC

T/ICT4D has a partnership with the Boston College (USA), to foster local research in GNSS   
science and applications in the African continent.



"MONitoring of Ionosphere by InnovaTive Techniques  coordinated Observations and Resources”       
Financed by:  European Space Agency (ESA)       
ICTP role: Implementation/validation of a technique to    
provide in near real time a realistic 3D specification of the ionosphere electron density.


"SatEllite Navigation sErvices for Civil Aviation"
Financed by Telespazio
ICTP role: development and implementation of ionosphere simulator as a
part of a platform that will be used to test multiconstellation (GPS, EGNOS,
Galileo) navigation solutions.


Training Research and Applications Network to Support the Mitigation of Ionospheric Threats.
Aim of the Project: to develop real time integrated state of the art tools to mitigate       
ionospheric threats to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and several       
related applications, such as civil aviation, marine navigation and land transportation.       
ICTP role:              
host and supervise students in the following research areas: 3D electron density       
modeling, data assimilation; Radio Occultation for ionospheric monitoring.
