Radio climatological models of the ionosphere are key to the system design and performance assessment of some ESA missions, both for Navigation and Earth Observation. In view of the new missions on the horizon and of the amount of experimental data that has been collected on the ionosphere in the past years, it is a proper time to revisit the performance of these models.The overall objective of this activity is to use the experimental observations of the ionosphere collected in the past years to assess the performance of climatological ionosphere models, to assess their ability to properly support future ESA missions, to identify weak areas if any andto propose recommendations for improvements. Most of the effort is expected to be put on ionosphere scintillation models.
