Riccardo Notarpietro is assistant professor since 2006 at the Politecnico di Torino. He received his Ph.D. in 2001 with a thesis on the atmosphere remote sensing exploiting GPS measurements from space and from ground. His fields of activities included also electromagnetic wave propagation, radarmeteorology, and more recently, GNSS-Reflectometry. He has been Visiting Scientist at EUMETSAT and DMI for GNSS Radio Occultation data analysis. He is actually working at EUMETSAT, providing scientific support to the development of the Radio Occultation payload and ground segment for the Second Generation of the Eumetsat Polar System (EPS-SG) program.

TRANSMIT (Training Research and Applications Network to Support the Mitigation of Ionospheric Threats) is an initiative funded by the European Commission through a Marie Curie Initial Training Network. It provided a coordinated program of academic and industrial training, focused on atmospheric phenomena that can significantly impair a wide range of systems and applications that are at the core of several activities embedded in our daily life. TRANSMIT deals with the harmful effects of the ionosphere on these systems. Main aim of the project has been to develop a web based prototype demonstrator aiming to showcase the project research outcomes in a user friendly manner, through a series of model outputs and tools that could serve as the blueprint for a future service to assist users and industry to mitigate the effects of ionospheric threats to GNSS.
