Accurate time and frequency distribution through a geostationary satellite for network reliable synchronization.
The system disseminates time and frequency in real-time via geostationary satellite. The proposed technology is based on consolidated telecommunication techniques (FDMA) that are applied in an innovative way, thus allowing for a reliable, competitive and cost-effective final system.
Stand alone synchronization system, with no dedicated satellites required
Sensible reduction of the disturbances due to interference, typical of GPS/Galileo, thanks to a different spectral band and different receivers (intrinsic)
Same coverage capability as for GPS/Galileo system (national scale)
GPS/Galileo independence and full technological redundancy
Reliable and competitive service relying on already largely experimented techniques
The proposed system allows synchronizing user clocks in each subscriber station of a network by using a geostationary satellite and a set of two-way stations. Precise time dissemination is based on transmitting a signal that contains information on both synchronization and localization of the stations and satellite.
This system is meant to work in parallel with GPS/GALILEO-based systems in order to reach full technological redundancy and it addresses networks that require outstanding timing accuracy (~100ns provided) and high reliability.
The service is accessible only to registered users.
