Satellite Time and Frequency Transfer and Dissemination


image of Satellite Time and Frequency Transfer and Dissemination

This is the first ITU Handbook to provide detailed information on the applied methods, technologies, algorithms, data structure and practical use of frequency and timing signals provided by satellite systems.



Global positioning system

Time and frequency transfer play a critical role in the functioning of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and in turn are also greatly enhanced by its worldwide acceptance. This chapter highlights the role of clocks, time and frequency in the operation of GPS and the capabilities and limitations of GPS in providing a mechanism for their dissemination.
