The Korean Radio Research Agency (RRA) has launched a new space weather service that is designed to support earth-based activities that can possibly be impacted by space weather. Solar flares and magnetic related activities can impact communications and GNSS services. The new services are expected to provide real-time information about space weather and forecasting. The RRA is a research institute of the national communications commission. 

“RRA has carried out routine space weather research, such as monitoring solar activities, ionospheric disturbances, and geomagnetic disturbances, while also providing information services to the public as part of its mandate under Korea’s radio communications act. On 19 september 2011 the Korean government established a new branch of RRA, the Korean Space Weather Center, an organization dedicated to space weather forecasting. RRA/KSWC is Korea’s official source for space weather alerts and warnings,” the agency states

Other Asian-Pacific countries operate space weather services including Japan, China, Australia and Thailand.
