Ionospheric research station is located near the small town of Zmiiv Kharkiv region.
Kharkov ionospheric research station was build a few time before the collapse of the Soviet Union was built, which was a direct analogue of the American HAARP project in Alaska, successfully functioning today. Complex station consisted of several antennas fields and giant parabolic antenna with a diameter of 25 meters, capable of emitting power of about 25 MW.
Ionospheric station of Kharkiv - a set of radio physical devices. They are created at the Institute of Ionospher unique Incoherent Scatter Radar from the world's largest in those time anti-aircraft two-mirror parabolic antenna with a diameter of 100 m fully steerable and parabolic antenna with a diameter of 25 m. Complex research facilities also include short-heating stand an effective capacity of 300 MW antenna size 300x300 m, which is designed to study the effect of powerful radio waves in ionospheric plasma.
