Abstract:

A technology for evaluating ground station sites on the basis of their effectiveness in disseminating time synchronization has been produced. Analytical studies have complemented the concept of computer modeling of the airspace population, then quantitatively assessing the effectiveness of various configurations and deployment of time disseminating equipments. Operations of major U.S. scheduled aircarrier aircraft operating in CONUS have been discretely modeled for a given day and time-of-day, the altitude, latitude and longitude of each aircraft is computed. Then, air-to-air and air-to-ground communication linkages are determined. In addition to producing data for use by the computer, these processes produce maps of aircraft activity versus time of day for direct interpretation. Modified author abstract
