PINS Challenge

About the challenge

Are you ready for a big challenge? Are you interested in ionospheric effects? Then this PINS Challenge is waiting for you! The organizers will distribute up to $150,000 among winners! Try your hand and register until 28th June, 2019! Read on for further information!


This open data science competition is about designing an algorithm which characterizes ionospheric variation effects on high frequency emissions. It will take place in two steps: Explorer and Master. The Explorer Challenge will define the sounder signals in order to be identified and processed. The Master Challenge will add new data sets.


Judges will evaluate:

  • additional ionospheric diagnostic data,
  • originality,
  • technique.


You are welcome to join this challenge if you are 18+ years old individual or team member. To check other requirements go to the PINS Challenge official website.
