1) Alouette-2 Topside Sounder Ionogram Data maxmize
Resource ID:spase://VWO/NumericalData/Alouette2/SFS/PT31S
Start:1965-11-29 13:42:37 Observatory:Alouette 2 Cadence:31 seconds
Stop:1968-01-01 04:11:45 Instrument:Alouette 2 Sweep-Frequency Sounder Resource:NumericalData
These ionograms were digitized from the original Alouette 2 7-track analog telemetry tapes using the facilities of the former Data Evaluation Laboratory at the NASA/GSFC. This data restoration project is headed by Dr. R.F. Benson (NASA/GSFC). Ionograms were digitized at the rate of 40,000 16-bit samples/sec. This sample rate is higher than the Nyquist frequency of 30 kHz. The sample frequency of 40 kHz provides a measurement every 25 microseconds corresponding to an apparent range (c*t/2) interval of 3.75 km. The ionograms consist of swept-frequency operation (there is no fixed-frequency operation as in ISIS-1 and ISIS-2). The time resolution between ionograms is typically 31 seconds.

2) ISIS-1 Topside Sounder Ionograms maxmize
Resource ID:spase://VWO/NumericalData/ISIS1/SFS/Ionogram.PT29S
Start:1969-01-30 14:50:12 Observatory:ISIS 1 Cadence:24 seconds
Stop:1983-12-30 15:19:33 Instrument:ISIS1 Swept-Frequency Sounder Resource:NumericalData
These ionograms were digitized from the original ISIS-1 7-track analog telemetry tapes using the facilities of the former Data Evaluation Laboratory at the NASA/GSFC. This data restoration project is headed by Dr. R.F. Benson (NASA/GSFC). Ionograms were digitized at the rate of 40,000 16-bit samples/sec. This sample rate is higher than the Nyquist frequency of 30 kHz. The sample frequency of 40 kHz provides a measurement every 25 microseconds corresponding to an apparent range (c*t/2) interval of 3.75 km. Each ionogram consists of a fixed-frequency and and a swept-frequency portion. The time resolution between ionograms is typically 29 seconds.

3) ISIS-2 Topside Sounder Ionograms maxmize
Resource ID:spase://VWO/NumericalData/ISIS2/SFS/Ionogram.PT22S
Start:1969-01-30 14:50:12 Observatory:ISIS 2 Cadence:22 seconds
Stop:1983-12-30 15:19:33 Instrument:ISIS2 Swept-Frequency Sounder Resource:NumericalData
These ionograms were digitized from the original ISIS-2 7-track analog telemetry tapes using the facilities of the former Data Evaluation Laboratory at the NASA/GSFC. This data restoration project is headed by Dr. R.F. Benson (NASA/GSFC). Ionograms were digitized at the rate of 40,000 16-bit samples/sec. This sample rate is higher than the Nyquist frequency of 30 kHz. The sample frequency of 40 kHz provides a measurement every 25 microseconds corresponding to an apparent range (c*t/2) interval of 3.75 km. Ionograms with this sample rate are designated as "full" ionograms because they have the full 3.75 km apparent-range resolution. The ionograms used for most analysis, and those available from CDAWeb, were produced by averaging every four samples of the sounder-receiver video amplitude output to yield an average value every 100 microseconds corresponding to an apparent-range resolution of 15 km. These ionogram files are referred to as "average" files with standard resolution. Each ionogram consists of a fixed-frequency and and a swept-frequency portion. The time resolution between ionograms is typically 14 or 22 seconds depending on the frequency sweep range.
