Abstract: This paper presents, for the first time, a few tomograms obtained using India’s own Radio Beacon for Ionospheric Tomography (RaBIT) onboard YOUTHSAT, a small satellite dedicated for the terrestrial upper atmospheric studies. The tomograms presented here, were obtained during the beginning of the solar cycle 24, and clearly demonstrate the potential of the tomography technique to investigate the large scale ionospheric processes over the Indian longitude region.
