Paper Abstract

The paper presents some results of the detection of ionospheric response to the operation of the engines of transport and cargo spacecrafts “Progress” during experiments of 2006-2014. The detection of ionospheric effects was carried out according to the total electron content (TEC) data obtained on GPS/GLONASS stations. We used both standing and specially deployed stations for the duration of the experiments. Although the response detection is complicated by a number of factors, it was found that the response represents a decrease of TEC with duration of 3-10 minutes and amplitude of 0,03-0,16 TECU. The analysis of ionospheric points movements allowed to estimate the transverse dimension of the area disturbed by engine operation. It was about 12-30 km.
