This report describes a computer program for the spatial smoothing of ionospheric parameters for use in the High-Frequency HF Benchmark Propagation Analysis Program. The HF Benchmark, being developed at the Naval Ocean Systems Center NOSC, employs a sophisticated ray tracing program coupled with a state-of-the-art ionospheric model. The merging of these two major components depends critically on the development of a spatial smoothing routine that accepts arbitrary ionospheric models as input.
