The availability of the RMI Dourbes comprehensive ionosonde database and the immediate access to high-quality digisonde measurements allowed the RMI scientists to do valuable research and developments. For example, the RMI Ionospheric section team developed a novel operational system based on measurements from the collocated Digisonde and a GNSS receiver in Dourbes.

The system, dubbed LIEDR (Local Ionospheric Electron Density profile Reconstruction), acquires and promptly processes the incoming measurements, computes the full-height ionospheric electron density profile, and displays the resulting profilograms. LIEDR is designed to operate in continuous real-time mode for service applications and to provide historical data/plots for research applications and further developments of the system.This service can be found on the following webpage:site ionosphere
