AIRCRAFT TIME & FREQUENCY REFERENCE
A stable atomic frequency reference on military aircraft withstands high accelerations, drastic and rapid temperature changes to drive radar and various intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance electronics even when GPS is compromised.
Airborne intelligence gathering systems used to intercept electronic signals require a precise atomic oscillator to operate without GPS with low dynamic phase noise and ruggedized packaging to survive harsh conditions.
GPS III satellites leverage an ultra-stable quartz crystal reference oscillator with precise short-term stability inside the Systems Mission Data Unit (MDU) to distribute precise timing to multiple satellite payloads.
High-bandwidth satellite communication instrumentation depends on extremely precise, ultra-low phase noise 10 MHz reference signals.
Tactical radio systems mounted on fixed and rotary wing aircraft rely on a ruggedized oscillator with low dynamic phase noise generating precision frequency and time signals for highly reliable, real-time, secure, mission-critical communications.
AUVs for intelligence, reconnaissance, and mine countermeasures require an accurate onboard time reference such as a low SWaP atomic clock to timestamp data collection, support communications, and navigate in the absence of GPS.
POSITION NAVIGATION & TIMING
A-PNT systems utilize multiple sensor inputs such as GNSS, precision atomic clocks, and inertial measurement units to provide accurate and trusted PNT data while operating in contested environments.
DATA CENTER OPERATIONS
Accurate, reliable and secure time of day is needed for network operations and mission critical applications.
REGIONAL HEADQUARTERS TIME STANDARD
Resilient time and frequency are required for communications and data systems if satellite-based time and frequency signals are not available.
Broadband VSAT systems require precise frequencies generated by a low SWAP atomic clock to establish secure broadband encrypted two-way satellite communications for front line forces in hostile locations.
