Array Systems

A recent trend in ground based space science instrumentation is the use of instruments such as advanced radio receivers, GPS systems, and ionospheric radars in spatially distributed arrays. These arrays provide both global context and simultaneous high resolution observations of the near space environment. Such observations are very valuable because the response of the geospace environment to Space Weather phenomena is most often both rapid and global in nature. The MIT Haystack Observatory has taken a leading role in the implementation and use of such instrument arrays. This role includes the development and application of global GPS based techniques for mapping the planetary total electron content of the ionosphere, the design and implementation of advanced ionospheric radar systems that can remotely sense the physical properties of the space environment, and the integration of advanced software radar and information technology techniques to enable the deployment of large scale instrumentation networks.
