RFA (misja Obstanovka / ISS)

The OBSTANOVKA-1 experiment was delivered to ISS in its Russian Segment in February 2013, then mounted by cosmonauts outside the station (April 2013). The aim of the bstanovka experiment is to monitor and diagnose the electromagnetic radiation and property of plasma around the station. In order to achieve this, the Plasma-Wave Complex was developed. One part of this instrument is the radio antenna-Radio Frequency Analyzer (RFA), developed by Polish CBK PAN in Warsaw and the IRF in Uppsala. It was designed to measure natural and man-made electromagnetic emissions in the frequency range of 0.1-15MHz. It can also be used for the space weather study purposes.
