Current responsibilities include instrumentation interface development and software design under Linux for ionospheric studies. Instrumentation includes a magnetometer, GPS-based measurements, a small ionosonde, and computer-operated radio receivers. Data are acquired in near-real-time via the Internet for use in models and simulations. Tools for automatic ionogram analysis have also been developed.

Development is carried out at the SEC office in Providence and at Utah State's Bear Lake Observatory. Additional radio propagation monitoring sites have been established at several locations, mostly in the western United States.
