SOLAR ALERT EVENT
The use of Gps System optimizes the piloting of drones, allowing automatic landing and creating "Way Point" (automatic flight paths realized by specific software). Unfortunately, the failure of the GPS can cause serious problems to the aircraft, making them even uncontrollable. It must therefore determine critical situations, during which avoid the use of any GPS device.
It's note that Gps are influenced by the geomagnetic activity and the solar radiation intensity. These parameters need to be carefully considered before starting a session in flight mode GPS!
Below an efficient monitoring service run by "NOAA Space Environment Center" by which you can know in real time the parameterization of the geomagnetic field and the solar intensity.

LEGEND STATUS MONITOR SUN'S X-RAYS
LEGEND GEOMAGNETIC FIELD
Normal: Solar X-ray flux is quiet (< 1.00e-6 W/m^2)
Active: Solar X-ray flux is active (>=1.00e-6 W/m^2)
Brillamento classe MM Class Flare: An M Class flare has occurred (X-ray flux >=1.00e-5 W/m^2)
X Class Flare: An X Class flare has occurred (X-ray flux >=1.00e-4 W/m^2)
Mega Flare: An unprecedented X-ray event has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-3 W/m^2) The designation "Mega Flare" was chosen by Kevin Loch when the status monitor was created on March 4, 1999. There is no "official" designation for flares in this range.
Geomagnetic Field is quiet (Kp<4)
Geomagnetic Field has been unsettled (Kp=4)
Geomagnetic Storm has occurred (Kp>4)
