In this contribution we present the calculation of a realistic timedependent geomagnetic cutoff along the International Space Station orbit, at about 400km above the Earth’s surface. For this work the Tsyganenko05 and IGRF models have been employed, including the temporal variation of the external component of the geomagnetic field due to the solar activity. The technique and its results will be discussed, as well as the relevance of this study to distinguish galactic cosmic rays from trapped secondary components in the geomagnetic field.
