    Observation system on TEC (Total Electron Content) in the ionosphere is a device measuring the electron density and scintillation (satellite signal fading) in the ionosphere in real-time by receiving signals from several GPS satellites. It is used for research on the impact of ionospheric changes on communications between the Earth and satellites.
