Laboratory for electromagnetic
is engaged in the experimental and theoretical works in
the branch of electric and magnetic field study in the conductive media (space plasma,
water, soil), and geophysical instrumentation development and manufacturing.
Space investigations has
long and successful history during recent 40 years and were resulted in numerous exciting
experiments carried out onboard of satellites and interplanetary stations. The last of
them - INTERBALL-TAIL,
was launched in 1995 and was operating on the orbit during 5 years. Three space projects -
VARIANT onboard Ukrainian SiCH-1M spacecraft, ECHO-EM onboard WARNING satellite and
ENVIRONMENT nanosatellite in frames of International Space Station scientific program -
are under the development now.
There are two main
directions of the space investigations now:
We can offer not only the
space qualified instrumentation for the study of electromagnetic parameters in space
plasma, but also provide consulting as to the methodology of both the measurements in
space and the sensors installation onboard the satellites.
Recently major activity in
geophysics is concentrated on the electromagnetic signatures of earthquake study. A
new experimental evidence of the magnetic signals preceding the earthquakes is obtained
for some regions of the Earth: Japan, Crimea, Kamchatka, Transcarpathians.
In the branch of the
geophysical instrumentation development the wide range of devices for the laboratory,
industry and field study is manufactured (in particular, the field vector magnetometer for
the geophysical prospecting of the oil and gas deposits, magnetotelluric station for the
study of geoelectric structure of Earth's crust etc.) and successfully tested.
Main application area:
Geophysical research in
space, sea and ground connected with the study of weak electric and magnetic fields and
Any instrumentation in other
area which uses the measurement of magnetic field and/or its fluctuations in the frequency
band from DC up to 1 megahertz with sensitivity up to 1 femtotesla.
Calibration systems for
magnetometers with high precision - both hardware and software development and
Systems for electromagnetic
cleanliness (EMC) testing in the frequency band DC - 1MHz.
