A reflectometry system has been developed for ASDEX Upgrade to measure the plasma profile from the scrape-off layer until the bulk plasma, simultaneously at the high and low field sides. Experimental results are presented showing the great sensitivity of the diagnostic to plasma radial movements and its tolerance to vertical movements of the plasma. Density profiles measured in ELMy regimes illustrate the capabilities of the diagnostic to detect fast profile changes.
