Abstract

Telecommunication, navigation, positioning systems require knowledge of ionospheric Ne(h)-profiles up to high-altitude orbits of satellites. The only way to construct such profiles is associated with the use of the ionospheric total electron content TEC. New option IRI-Plas of the IRI2010 model allows us to construct Ne(h)-profiles by adjustment of the model to the current maximum values of the parameters of the ionospheric F2 layer (foF2, hmF2) and the TEC. This paper contains a comprehensive comparison of these profiles with the data of various experiments (ISR, CHAMP, DMSP). Results show the high efficiency of this adjustment. The proposed method of further adjustment of the IRI-Plas model to the plasma frequency at altitudes of CHAMP and DMSP satellites allows us to produce behaviors of Ne(h)-profiles during the disturbances, as well as to refine the values of TEC, which determine the accuracy of positioning.
