In this paper, a novel method for electron density reconstruction using ionosonde data is proposed. Proposed technique uses Hidden Markov Models for extracting echoes that provides valuable information about electron density distribution in order to provide input to a model based optimization technique that reconstructs the electron density distribution by solving model parameters. Analysis on real ionosonde data shows that proposed technique outperforms standard techniques in the literature.
