VARIANT
The major goal of the VARIANT project onboard SICH-1M satellite is to carry out the study of field-aligned currens as a part of Space Weather program. It includes direct measurements of current density in the ionosphere combined with the measurements of the magnetic and electric field fluctuations that can serve as new elements in the data set of signatures of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling. The secondary goal of VARIANT experiment is the statistical study of minor seismogenic effects in the ionosphere and their comparison with the background noise statistical data set. Tentative launch date is year 2003.
INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION ENVIRONMENT STUDY
LC ISR is Co-PI of the international experiment OBSTANOVKA-1 onboard the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS). The main goal of the experiment is to develop the methodology and instrumentation for EM phenomena investigation in the ISS environment. To fulfil this goal the automatic mini-buoys and necessary operation procedures are under development. Tentative launch date is year 2004.

ELECTROMAGNETIC INVESTIGATIONS AT UKRANIAN ANTARCTIC STATION “AKADEMIK VERNADSKY”
Three-component flux-gate magnetometer LEMI-008 was installed in the magnetic observatory “Argentine Islands”, Ukrainian Antarctic station “Academik Vernadsky”, in the beginning of 2000. In January 2001, the equipment for satellite transmission of magnetometer, which provides the communication via geostationary satellite GOES-E, was installed. On March 11, 2001, the permanent transmission of the LEMI-008 magnetometer data has started. The data are being cumulated on FTP-server after processing in the Canadian information center. Early in 2002 new high-sensitivity system for magnetic field 0.3¸300 Hz variations based on LEMI-112A sensors has been installed. It expandes range of on-site EMF studies and sets Ukrainian Antarctic Station as one of the world's best equiped. LCISR is responsible for the operation of electromagnetic polygon there.
