Abstract:

The submarine powered, submarine tracking pinger SP-STP is designed to mount on submarines to allow the submarine to be accurately tracked by a sonar system. The SP-STP is synchronized to a master clock and produces a pulse every 10 sec or 5 sec if desired. There are two SP-STP units, which differ only in the precision of each of the 1 MHz oscillators. Unit one has an accuracy of 1 part in 10 to the minus 9th power and is the primary unit, and Unit two has an accuracy of 1 part in 10 to the minus 8th power and is the backup unit.
