This model was developed on the basis of Hinotori satellite measurements from February 1981 to June 1982 (F10.7 varied from 140 to 230). It uses a spline-approximation in the 5-dimensional space comprising of solar activity (F10.7), month, local time, geographic latitude and geomagentic latitude (limited to +/- 42 degrees because of the orbit inclination).
