Swarm is ESA’s first Earth observation constellation of satellites. The trio of identical satellites are designed to identify and measure precisely the different magnetic signals that make up Earth's magnetic field. The electrical field instrument, positioned at the front of each satellite, measures plasma density, drift and acceleration in high resolution to characterise the electric field around Earth.
