The Forum hopes to bring foremost experts together to discuss space weather and aviation.

The effects of solar activity on modern networks and equipment, varying from a momentary inconvenience to an enduring loss of systems in extreme cases, can be felt on entire sectors of activity in our societies. Aviation, including the sector of drones, is no exception. The increasing use of satellite means (for navigation, communication and surveillance) and the continuing trend towards miniaturization of electronic components have led industrials, operators and states to take a closer look at the effects of the more intense solar eruptions.

Astronomers, satellite operators, navigation systems specialists, service providers of space weather and civil aviation authorities will present in an educational way, accessible to non-specialists, the most recent knowledge as well as the initiatives on research, observation, forecast and protection.
