The Ionospheric Occultation Experiment (IOX) is a GPS occultation sensor that was part of the US Air Force's Space Test Program PICOSat mission. Launched at the end of September 2001, IOX collected data between November 2001 and October 2004. As opposed to other GPS occultation sensor missions (e.g., GPS-MET, CHAMP, SAC-C) which have a primary focus on tropospheric/stratospheric observations, the IOX mission focus was ionospheric. The PICOSat 67° inclination, 800 km altitude is excellent for performing ionospheric studies because it enables measurements at all local times from an altitude that is almost always above the F-region peak. IOX data can be used to derive total electron content (TEC), electron density profiles, and amplitude and phase scintillation. The complete 3-year IOX database of measurements and data products has been put on-line for general use by the LWS science community. We describe the IOX data products and procedures for utilizing this new resource.
