SGO's groundbased observations of ULF, VLF waves and cosmic noiser absorption will be used in PWING-project lead by University of Nagoya, Japan. In addition to existing groundbase instrumentation, new optical instruments for pulsating auroras will be in operation after the satellite operations starts.  New 100Hz high-speed camera was installed to Sodankylä by ISEE in September 2016 and first pulsating aurora events are already under study. The installation of the  other high speed camera to Kevo research station and other Japanese cameras to Nyrölä obsevatory will be done in early 2017.
