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.



Satellites and time and frequency transfer and dissemination

Over the last few decades atomic clocks have moved from laboratory novelties to large scale usage. The improvement in quartz oscillator technology and in satellite timing systems has augmented the decades of improvement in atomic clocks. Navigation, communication and power systems have all benefited greatly from these improvements. Precise timing has moved from a novelty to a necessity. Hence, many applications depend on precise timing elements.
