TSU scientists have developed a new method of sensing the ionosphere

TSU radiophysicists have developed new high-accuracy methods for diagnostics of the ionosphere. This region of the atmosphere acts as a shield against cosmic ionizing radiation, in large part coming from the sun, and plays an important role in solving the problem of solar-terrestrial relations. The state of the ionosphere directly affects the quality of radio communication, which is important for the defense industry and navigation of ships and aircraft. Digital ionosonde created by TSU radiophysicists scans the ionosphere hundreds of times faster and up to a thousand times more accurately than its counterparts.
