A new digital ionosonde called AIS-INGV (Advanced Ionospheric Sounder) was designed both for research and for
routine service of HF radio wave propagation forecast. Nearly the entire system was developed in the Laboratorio
di Geofisica Ambientale at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), Rome. It exploits advanced
techniques for signal analysis, recent technological devices and PC resources. This paper describes design concepts
and performance of the new ionosonde.
