Abstract:

The High-Frequency Benchmark is a computer code being developed to employ a sophisticated ray tracing program coupled with a state-of-the-art ionospheric model chosen by the user. The merging of these two major components depends critically on the development of a spatial smoothing routine that accepts arbitrary ionospheric models as inputs. A significant improvement in the spatial interpolation has been made which enhances the flexibility of the model. The latest version of the Parameterized Ionospheric Model has been incorporated. This report describes these improvements and enhancements.
