Welcome to the Solar Sentinel Crisis Simulation

Are you and your team ready to put your crisis response skills to the ultimate test? Join us as we work together across a series of live exercises & interactive web content to tackle a catastrophic solar storm – the likes of which the world has never seen.

Register now to take part.

Prepare for the Unthinkable

In a world increasingly reliant on interconnected technology, the risk of a catastrophic solar storm looms large.
A Carrington-level event – a solar storm on the scale of the most powerful one ever recorded – could cripple our power grids,
communication networks, and critical infrastructure. The consequences would be far-reaching, affecting every aspect of our lives.

This simulation will immerse you in the chaos and complexity of such a crisis, challenging you to make difficult decisions under pressure.
You will step into the shoes of the
Global Crisis Response Team (GCRT), an international body of experts tasked with
advising governments and coordinating a global response to this unprecedented disaster.


You will participate in 30-minute facilitated sessions where you will be presented with crisis scenarios and asked to choose the best course of action. The majority vote will determine the GCRT’s response.


You will access a dedicated website to explore the unfolding crisis in more depth, including news reports, expert analysis, social media feeds, and interactive elements.


We will conclude with an open discussion to reflect on the lessons learned from the exercise and discuss the broader implications of the solar storm scenario.

Day 1 – Solar Storm Impact and Initial Response

A massive coronal mass ejection (CME) struck Earth, causing widespread devastation and triggering a global crisis. The CME’s impact exceeded initial predictions, resulting in:

  • Total Communication Blackout
  • Widespread Power Outages
  • Transportation Chaos
  • Financial Crisis

Day 3 – Escalating Crisis and Humanitarian Challenges

The impact of the CME continues into a third day, with significant and sustained impacts being felt globally. Notable impacts include:

  • Healthcare Crisis
  • Sanitation Crisis
  • Social Unrest
  • Mass Casualty Event

Day 5 – Fireside Chat and Long-Term Impact Discussion

Join us for a crucial fireside chat on Friday, June 28th, 3pm GMT/10am ET, as we reflect on the events of the past week, the challenges faced during the exercise, and look ahead to the long road to recovery.

In this intimate discussion, we will delve into the key questions that will shape our future:

  • Lessons Learned from the Exercise
  • Supply Chain Resilience
  • Cybersecurity in a Crisis
