An EOS Buzz article by Sasha Ukhorskiy and colleagues at JHU/APL and NASA/GSFC summarizes the accomplishments of the Van Allen Probes prime mission and describes the science objectives of the extended mission (begun on November 1, 2015) and connections to the NASA MMS and JAXA ERG missions. Note that the sunspot number peaked in April 2014 and we are now in the declining phase of the solar cycle. See https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/153ad3d831ac2cf3
SuperDARN is running modes in support of the satellite missions as described in this earlier article: http://vt.superdarn.org/tiki-read_article.php?articleId=224

News item from Maria Federica Marcucci: A power line failure at Dome C at the end of July 2015 brought down radar operations and subjected the equipment to -60C temperatures. David Biondi (INAF-IAPS) and Enrico Simeoli (CNR-Reti e Sistemi Informativi) have travelled to Dome C and brought the radar back to life. As of January 2, 2016 the radar is once again contributing to the SuperDARN data stream.
Congratulations, David and Enrico! (Pictured here at the site, David on the right)

Starting in late September 2015, SuperDARN started a new campaign in order to support data being collected on the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission launched by NASA. In addition, the SuperDARN network has been scheduling modes to support new-moon periods over North America to collaborate with all-sky imagers in this area. Lastly, the SuperDARN network continues to identify and schedule periods where the Van Allen probe footprints are within SuperDARN radar field-of-views.
