Lviv Center of Institute for Space Research

The Lviv Center of Institute for Space Research (LC ISR) of the National Academy of Sciences (NASU) and National Space Agency of Ukraine (NSAU) was organized in 1996 as a scientific experimental division of the Institute for Space Research. The institute’s main objectives are: the development, testing and implementation of the advanced instrumentation for space research.

Primary scientific directions

  • fundamental investigations of acoustic-electromagnetic interactions in atmosphere and ionosphere
  • investigation of the lithosphere-ionosphere and Sun-Earth connections
  • propagation theory and experimental study of electromagnetic fields in conducting media (space plasma, ground, sea water)
  • development and manufacturing of high class sensors and systems for measuring the parameters of electric and magnetic fields and for data collection and processing for space and ground geophysics
  • preparation and realization of space experiments.

Distinctive competencies

Lviv Center of Institute for Space Research has a unique technological resource for the development, manufacturing and calibration of flux-gate and induction magnetometers. This allows creating the space and ground-based instrumentation with the highest for today level of metrological parameters.

Some examples of LC ISR production are presented on the figures. The specific advantage of LC ISR technology is the tailoring of the developed instrumentation to the customer’s requirements and all what is theoretically possible within existing physical restrictions may be realized at the highest level.

Some examples of the technological achievements of the institute

More than 10 spatial experiments were carried out with the participation of LC ISR specialists. The first scientific space physics experiment “Variant” on board the remote sensing satellite “Sich-1M” with international scientific payload (launched 24.12.2004) enabled for the first time direct measurements of the spatial current density in space plasma.

The effect of solar bursts on atmospheric infrasound was revealed and the concept of the interaction model of solar activity and atmospheric infrasound was developed for the first time.

A generalized approach to the recognition of the electromagnetic precursory signals of earthquakes preparation process when structural changes and anomalies occur in the Earth crust was proposed.

A new physical effect – gamma – magnetic normalization of alloys with high magnetic permeability – was discovered and experimentally confirmed.

LC ISR is one of the leading organizations in the world in the branch of development and manufacturing of field electromagnetic geophysical instrumentation, as well as of methodology and practice of electromagnetic measurements. A set of high-class geophysical devices both for space, onground and marine applications were developed and commercialized.

These devices have international recognition and are used both in Ukraine and abroad (USA, Canada, European Community, Japan, Italy, Hungary etc., about 25 countries altogether). The success of the achieved sustainability is in great deal based on LC ISR–STCU collaboration in regular and partnership projects.

Partnering opportunities

LC ISR has close relations with Alberta University and several private companies in Canada. The institute is looking for collaboration with interested institutions and companies (in Canada, the EU and the USA) in the development of both low noise and super-low power light-weight flux-gate and induction coil magnetometers for different applications – space and field geophysics.

LC ISR is also looking for the partnership in the development of new advanced electromagnetic instrumentation for geophysical prospecting, especially for new applications, such as cable and autonomous systems for oil/gas prospecting at sea bed, in the harsh environment as mountaineer or polar areas etc.
