THE MISSION OF THE SRTI-BAS SPACE RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY

INSTITUTE AND BULGARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES (SRTI-BAS)

The mission of the SRTI-BAS is conduct of fundamental and applied studies in the field of Space Physics, Remote Sensing of the Earth and Planets, and Aerospace Systems and Technologies.

The priorities of the SRTI-BAS are:

  • Solar-Terrestrial and Space Physics (solar wind, magnetosphere-ionosphere physics, high and middle atmosphere physics, space weather);
  • High-energy astrophysics, galactic space rays;
  • Medico-biological studies, space biotechnologies, heliobiology, telemedicine;
  • Design, development and transfer of methods, instrumentation and technologies for remote sensing of the Earth, regional and global monitoring of the environment and security;
  • Research in the field of obtaining and application of new superhard materials;
  • Development of innovative aerospace instrumentation and technologies, as well as their transfer to economy.
