Coherent Electromagnetic Radio Tomography (CERTO)

NSSDCA ID: 2008-017A-05

Mission Name: C/NOFS
Principal Investigator:Dr. Paul A. Bernhardt


The Coherent Electromagnetic Radio Tomography (CERTO) is a tri-band (150, 400, 1067 MHz) radio beacon that permits direct measurement of ionospheric scintillation parameters at several frequencies by ground receivers. CERTO measurements can also be used for tomographic reconstruction of electron density profiles.
