Product description

Normally in the business of building things that emit tons of Ions, ISPE has instead turned their hands to this nifty little gadget that helps detect them.

Was it because of their devotion to the expansion of our universe? Or does it have something to do with the special, free filters they built meant to help 'screen out erroneous signals from nearby ion-generating devices'.

Note: Please allow trained Scientists to deploy for best results. Needs a deployed power unit & central station to operate.

Ionic Symphonic Protonic Electronics


The counter part to the weather station, this experiment only works on bodies without an atmosphere.

Science per hour formula

The science per hour formula is as follows: base value of the module (0.3125) · kerbal level multiplier · body surface science multiplier

The table for the kerbal multiplier value is the following:

Level Value
Not scientist 0.05
Level 0 0.25
Level 1 0.35
Level 2 0.45
Level 3 0.60
Level 4 0.80
Level 5 1.00

For example a level 3 scientist deploying an ionographer experiment on Mun gives 0.3125 · 0.60 · 4 = 0.75 science per hour
