Abstract: The ionosphere is the single largest contributor to the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) error budget and ionospheric scintillation (IS) in particular is one of its most harmful effects. The Ground Based Scintillation Climatology (GBSC) has been recently developed by INGV as a software tool to identify the main areas of the ionosphere in which IS is more likely to occur. Due to the high computational load required, GBSC is currently used only for scientific, offline, studies and not as a real time service. Recently, a collaboration was initiated between ISMB and INGV in order to identify which cloud service model (IaaS, PaaS or SaaS) is most suitable for implementing the GBSC technique within the cloud computing environment. The aims of this joined effort are twofold: i) to optimize the computational resources allocation strategy/plan for the GBSC service, ii) to fine tune the algorithm for dynamic and real time application, towards a service contributing to high precision professional applications for the GNSS-reliant business sectors. Preliminary result of the implementation of GBSC within the cloud environment will be shown.
