AE9/AP9/SPM: Data Sets

The latest model version uses 45 data sets, most spanning a wide range of solar cycle phases. Use of long duration data sets permits derivation of statistics representing a wide range of environment states. The data sets are cleaned, intercalibrated and processed into flux maps, making use of templates, or empirical estimates of the overall shape of the radiation belts in energy and space. AE9/AP9/SPM is designed to support periodic updates with new data sets, and future versions will includes data from NASA's Van Allen Probes and AFRL's Demonstration and Science Experiments (DSX) mission.
