Abstract : To investigate the prospects of controlled flight in the upper atmosphere, 'Yantar' automatic ionospheric laboratories with gas plasma ion engines were launched by means of geophysical rockets to altitudes of 100-400 km. The complicated interaction of a gas ion jet and a neutralizer (electron emitter) with the plasma of the ionosphere is studied. The data from processing the results obtained in the experiments are given in the report.
