Abstract:

Aerospace has routinely processed the Osborne Time Transfer Receiver TTR data for the purpose of monitoring the performance of ground and GPS atomic clocks in near real-time with on-line residual displays and characterizing clock stability with Allan Variance calculations. Recently, Aerospace added the ability to estimate the TTRs location by differentially correcting the TTRs location in the WGS84 reference system. We exercised this new feature on a set of TTR clock phase data and obtained sub-meter accurate station location estimates of the TTR at the Aerospace Electronic Research Lab ERL.
