In the previous chapters, various modifications of radio tomography with ground-based receiving systems have been discussed. The use of satellite-borne receiving systems makes it possible to sound the ionosphere in the satellite-to-satellite direction and allows obtaining information about the ionosphere over a set of quasi-tangential rays. In particular, nowadays, most promising for ionospheric and atmospheric investigations are the systems mounted in low-and middle-orbiting satellites that receive radio signals from navigational systems such as GPS/GLONASS.
