abstract. As the launch of the Radiation Belt Storm Probes approaches, it is timely to consider possible synergies between this mission and the international array of SuperDARN radars. Building upon the coordination already underway for the Cluster, THEMIS and Geotail missions, we look at the disposition of the spacecraft relative to radar coverage and consider strategies for maximising collaborative research.
