IPS is the Ionospheric Prediction Service, a unit of the Australian Federal Government Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources.

IPS acts as the Australian Space Weather Agency, providing national radio propagation and space weather services. Systems and technologies affected by space weather, and supported by IPS, include:

  • HF radio systems, such as communications and surveillance systems;
  • Geophysical exploration, power systems protection and the cathodic protection of long-distance pipelines;
  • Satellite and spacecraft operations

Support is also provided for international and domestic research into the space environment. IPS operates an extensive network of monitoring stations and observatories within the Australasian region and in Antarctica to gather information on the space environment in support of customers' operations. IPS also exchanges this information with similar organisations world-wide.
