SCIPION is a new state of the art digital
sounder that has been devoloped by France Telecom-CNET for ionospheric
monitoring and research. Extensive data processing using DSP technology has
resulted in a low power, low cost and full featured system for both vertical and
oblique soundings. A SCIPION system is in the process of being installed in
Dakar, Senegal, to study HF propagation in the sub-equatorial ionosphere.
However, preliminary results have still been obtained during experiments wit a
prototype system. In this paper, the system is described and some illustrative
examples of its capabilities are shown.<br><br><b>Keywords.</b> Ionosphere (Equatorial ionosphere,
