 Project objective

The objective of the project is to develop an Advanced low-cost High Resolution Cosmic Ray Detector: State-of-the-art particle-accelerator-derived TRL6-proven technology innovatively applied to Space Weather.

The short-term business concept is the use of such detectors for advanced early detection of Geomagnetic Storms with unprecedented accuracy and local data, which has an immense European/Global commercial interest due to the growing problems generated by Space Weather events, the fragility of our infrastructures and the broad range of industries which are severely affected by them.

This global-impact project bases its commercial opportunity in the well-known vast cost saving potential of accurate early warnings for key industrial sectors such as Energy, Telecommunications, GNSS, Transportation or Insurance.

The detector will have unparalleled resolution and low cost. This will make it possible to monitor critical infrastructures on-site. It will also allow to create a low-cost, dense, high resolution European/Global network of such detectors. Both applications are absolute novelties.

The detector will be affordable, standalone, modular and scalable, which will make it perfect also as lab equipment. Its broad range of scientific applications and low cost will mean that many small research departments will benefit from it, maximizing the international impact of the project. This can also boost the research in areas such as Space Weather, restricted until now to big experiments.

Universities, international experiments, Astrophysics, Space Weather, Climate and other research institutes will comprise the end-users together with the main customers: the private sector.

In this phase 1, a comprehensive study of all the resources needed for phase 2 will be carried out, this will include business plan, marketing plan including all potential stakeholders and financial/economic study, taking into account H2020 funding as well as the company’s own resources.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ASWD" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
