General Information

ISRI was founded in 1996 and today includes main Institute in Kyiv (fundamental physics of near-Earth space, informational technologies in Earth Observation from Space, theory of control), Lviv Center of SRI (space and ground-based instrumentation, data handling systems), Kharkiv Center of SRI (algorithms for ground facilities, ballistics and tracking of Space Vehicles). SRI prepares and performs main national and international research projects in near Earth Space: VARIANT (onboard SICH-1), POTENTIAL (SICH-2), IONOSAT (under development); in Earth Observation: informational services in framework of GEO-UA program; Russian-Ukrainian Program for International Space Station. SRI represents Ukraine in main international Space organizations and working groups. (COSPAR, CEOS, GEO).

SRI is a center of excellence in the field of ionosphere exploration and space weather forecasting. SRI NASU-NSAU has a strong experience in solar-terrestrial physics. Original methods of dynamic systems control under uncertainty have been developed during several years.

Institute has 5 scientific departments, employs about 80 people, including 12 Dr.Sc. and around 20 Ph.D.

Institute’s Focus

Main focus points of the Institute in basic research are:

  • solar-terrestrial physics and space weather – space information systems and technologies, aerospace data processing methods – space material science;
  • development of new instruments for space research;
  • theory and methods of control for space systems. Significant roles in the Institute’s applied activity are disasters monitoring and mitigation using modern data assimilation, data fusion and techniques.

Valuable Technology Offerings

SRI has a strong interest in joint development and commercialization of new technologies and services in the following areas:

  • Geo-information technologies and services;
  • Environmental monitoring and natural disaster management;
  • Grid and distributed computing;
  • Satellite data processing. Fundamental study of upper atmosphere and ionosphere wave activity;
  • Investigations of ionosphere response on anthropogenic and natural hazards;
  • Experiments on LEO satellites;
  • Experiment “Variant” onboard Ukrainian remote sensing satellite Sich-1M launched in 2004;
  • Preparation of new experiment “Potential” onboard Ukrainian remote sensing satellite Sich-2;
  • Preparation of new mission IONOSAT onboard constellation of 3 LEO satellites;
  • Space weather forecasting;
  • Space instruments damage due to space weather impacts;
  • Development of methods and devices for remote sensing of vegetation.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

SRI NASU-NSAU extensively collaborates with the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the Working Group on Information Systems and Services (WGISS) of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS), and participates in several international and national projects in collaboration with the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER), the European Space Agency (ESA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC), University of Florida, Max-Planck institute and SPIE.

IONOSAT mission is included into Ukrainian National Space Program on 2008-2012, is also proposed for the First European Space Program, Space Weather Program and GMES. SRI NASU-NSAU maintains intensive research collaboration with leading international Institutions in the field of space physics: Sweden Institute for Space Physics, Stockholm, Sweden, Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie de l’Environnement (LPCE/CNRS), Orleans, France, Center for Space Research of Polish Academy of Sciences,Warsaw, Poland, Institute of Space Research of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria, SRI of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia; Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radiowave Propagation of Russian Academy of Sciences, Troizk, Russia.

The Institute participated in a number of international projects funded by STCU, CRDF, as well as in inter-governmental programs of scientific cooperation.
