Creotech’s CEO Grzegorz Brona was quoted as saying on Monday: “Together with our partners, we have completed a project for the ESA that is of key importance in predicting solar weather.”

He added that weather on the sun “is significant in the context of problems with satellite and radio communications.”

Creotech had teamed up with the Polish Academy of Sciences' Space Research Centre and CloudFerro, a provider of cloud solutions, to carry out the project, called Telltale, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

“The project was delivered in response to demand for more effective forecasting of the ionosphere weather and for ways to nullify interference with radio signals, which is caused by solar storms,” the company said in a statement. 

Such sun-related disturbances in the ionosphere can undermine communications by damaging telecom satellites or energy infrastructure, Creotech’s CEO Brona explained.  

Predicting space weather

Creotech said that data obtained from what are known as ionoprobes, if swiftly and properly interpreted, helps predict disturbances in radio communications.  

Under the Telltale project, Creotech and its partners have created “a model of a cloud platform, designed to optimise and process data, as well as forecast space weather in real time,” the company said in its statement. 

The cloud infrastructure makes it possible for various entities to share data, calculations, processes and other resources, Creotech added.    

Creotech Instruments is a Polish provider of space technology products and services. It has supplied equipment for 26 projects in the space sector, including 14 space missions, four of which were organised under the auspices of the ESA, the PAP news agency reported.
