Ionospheric Occultation Experiment
The Ionospheric Occultation Experiment (IOX) uses a dual frequency Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to measure ionospheric properties, an ionosphere remote sensing satellite package. IOX demonstrates remote sensing techniques for future United States Department of Defense space systems and helps to improve operational models for ionospheric and thermospheric forecasts.
