THE RECORDING OF IONOSPHERIC SOUNDING DATA IN A DIGITAL FORMAT.
ILLINOIS UNIV URBANA RADIOLOCATION RESEARCH LAB
The data made available by ionospheric sounders is of such volume as to require digital recording and processing for efficient use of the sounders. The feasibility of implementing a system to perform the task of recording this data in a digital format is studied here. The basic problem considered is the trade-off between the accuracy of the recorded data and the volume of the recorded data. The volume of data determines the average rate of recording, therefore directly affecting the cost of implementing the system. The possibility of processing the data partly before recording is considered as is the possibility of recording the entire volume of raw data. The weight of evidence is against recording the entire volume of raw data, but rather towards a system in which more than one mode of operation is possible. These modes of operation would then allow flexibility in the use of the system for various applications. Author
