ISWI produces results.
Attached is a paper based on the data from ISWI instrumentation running in Egypt -- which has been an active force in IHY and ISWI.
Among this instrumentation is the MAGDAS fluxgate magnetometer at Aswan. The MAGDAS Project in Aswan is a collaboration between Dr. A. M. Mahrous (Helwan University, Egypt) and Prof. K. Yumoto (Kyushu University, Japan). So I attach some photos that I took during the installation of this magnetometer in the desert of southern Egypt. South Valley University is also a member of this collaboration, as the equipment is located on the campus of this university.
