• Develop physical or statistical models about the origin and dynamics of the ionospheric and upper atmospheric phenomena that will eventually allow us to forecast their occurrence.
• To promote public awareness about the variability of space weather and the effects that ionospheric phenomena can have on people's livelihoods.
• Monitor and observe the equatorial ionosphere and upper atmosphere in order to measure the different physical parameters of these regions and to detect the phenomena that occur in them covering altitudes from 60 km to 2,000 km.
• Carry out observations of meteors and other celestial bodies in order to complement our studies and observations of space weather.
For the same purpose, we have complementary instruments to the Jicamarca radar, such as magnetometers, GNNS receivers, ionosondes, interferometers, and other smaller radars that are part of a network of geophysical instruments distributed in Peru and other South American countries.
