The Personal Space Weather Station project ultimately aims to create a small, multi-instrument system that can make ground-based measurements of the space environment. The observations from this project will not only be useful to the owner of the system, but also aggregated into a central database for space science and space weather research purporses. Initial work focuses on the development of a scientific-grade high frequency (HF) radio receiver, as well as the necessary software and network infrastructure. This project is led by the New Jersey Institute of Technology Center for Solar Terrestrial Research (NJIT-CSTR) in collaboration with the Massachusettes Institute of Technology Haystack Observatory and the Tucson Amateur Packet Radio, Inc. (TAPR).
Want to be involved? Most development is currently taking place through the TAPR TangerineSDR project, a software designed radio project that is supporting the PSWS.
