Abstract:

Global time transfer, or synchronization, between a user clock and USNO UTC time can be performed using the Global Positioning System GPS, and commercially available time transfer receivers. This paper presents the test results of time transfer using the GPS system and a Stanford Telecommunications, Inc. STI Time Transfer System TTS Model 502. Tests at the GPS Master Control Site MCS in Vandenburg, California and at the United States Naval Observatory USNO in Washington, D.C. are described. An overview of GPS, and the STI TTS 502 is presented. A discussion of the time transfer process and test concepts is included.
