Project summary

The project implies theoretical, computational, and experimental activities on the development and examination at land of an equipment to predict regions and dates of nature catastrophe occurrence using heavy-current deuterium ion injector, detectors on the base of multigrid probe and toroidal pulsed solenoid, time measuring unit (timer) allowing highly accurate determination of magnetic component of electromagnetic field Bн and induction of quasi-steady geomagnetic Earth’s field BE when aboard electromagnetic interference exceeds measured physical values which are Earth’s cataclysm precursors. As a result of the project a laboratory system should be developed and tested in land conditions. This system is to be a prototype of operating highly sensitive magnetometer on the base of remote interrogation of the Earth’s magnetosphere by pulsed ion beams.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
