tec-suite

Overview

tec-suite is a tool for reconstruction of the slant total electron content (TEC) value in the ionosphere. It uses data of Global Navigation Satellite Systems such as GPS and GLONASS. To determine TEC value along “receiver-satellite” line-of-sight, tec-suite uses phase and pseudorange derived from RINEX files [RNX].

For the moment tec-suite supports:

  • Navigation systems:
    • GPS
    • GLONASS
    • Galileo
    • Compass/BeiDou
    • GEO (geostationary satellites, part of SBAS)
  • RINEX versions:
    • v.2 (2.0 - 2.11)
    • v.3 (3.0 - 3.03)
  • File types:
    • RINEX observation files
    • Hatanaka-compressed RINEX observation files [CRNX]
    • RINEX navigation files
    • compressed (.Z or .gz) files
