Dipole antenna to measure the three components of the electromagnetic field (Obstanovka mission)

Project name: Dipole antenna to measure the three components of the electromagnetic field (Obstanovka mission)

Consignee: The Ministry of Higher Education (MNiSW)

Project leader: J. Juchniewicz

Participants in the project: H. Rothkaehl, R. Pietrzak, M. Morawski, J. Grygorczuk

Cooperation: The Russian Space Research Institute (IKI)

Timeframe of the project:

The experiment, “Obstanovka'' was carried out within the long-term program of applied research on board the Russian segment of International Space Station, and determined by the "Protocol of Cooperation between the Russian Academy of Sciences and Polish Academy of Sciences in the field of elementary space research, 2006-2010."

Theplasma-wave (PWC)complex, i.a., consists ofthe instrument RFA (Radio Frequency Analyzer) antenna system comprising: electric dipole antennas RFA-AD and magnetic antennas RFA-AM together with preamplifiers.
 

The devicescapable of measuring electromagnetic field in the 0.1-15 MHz band were designed and built at the Space Research Centre PAS.
