Global Positioning System (GPS) Energetic Particle Data

browse graphicImage for the GPS constellation (from GPS.gov).
Energetic particle data from the CXD and BDD instrument on the GPS constellation are available to the space weather research community. The release of these data supports the National Space Weather Action Plan which was recently published by the Executive Office of the President's National Science and Technology Council (NSTC).
