This paper presents information on two new models: an ionospheric specification model and a magnetospheric specification model. The goal of these models is to provide operational information based on real‐time satellite and ground‐based measurements. The ionospheric model will be described in detail and the magnetospheric model, which is in an earlier state of development, will be outlined.
