Pagination or Media Count:
Frequency Control Device Technology is of vital importance to the DoD since the accuracy and stability of frequency sources and clocks are key determinants of the performance of radar, C3I, navigation, surveillance, EW, missile guidance, and IFF systems. The Advisory Group on Electron Devices AGED has determined that both additional research and development and, most importantly, the implementation and sustenance of capabilities for manufacturing the needed frequency control components, at an affordable cost, are urgently required. The payoff from these activities will be the ability to field systems such as GPS, MILSTAR, Joint STARS, Patriot, AMRAAM, JTIDS and many others with greatly improved performance characteristics including increased accuracy and range. In addition, system reliability will be enhanced and costs minimized.
