Instruments as part of a probe wave, induction magnetometer ferrozondiruyuschego magnetometer designed to measure the electromagnetic parameters of the ionospheric plasma. Results of a space experiment will be used to deepen the fundamental knowledge about the nature of "space weather", as well as improving mathematical models to predict its impact on biological and technological processes on Earth. Enabling devices are planned in mid-February.
