Abstract: The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), in the development of timing systems for remote locations, had a technical requirement for a Y code (SA(AS) GPS precise time transfer receiver (TTR) which could be used both in a stationary mode or mobile mode. A contract was awarded to the Stanford Telecommunication Corporation (STEL) to build such a device. The Eastern Range (ER) also had a requirement for such a receiver and entered into the contract with NRL for the procurement of additional receivers. The Moving Vehicle Experiment (MVE) described in this paper is the first in situ test of the STEL Model 5401C Time Transfer System in both stationary and mobile operation. The primary objective of the MVE was to test the timing accuracy of the newly developed GPS TTR aboard a moving vessel. To accomplish this objective, a joint experiment was performed with personnel from NRL, and the ER at the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) Test Range at Andros Island. This range is under the direction of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC), Newport, Rho& Island. The test was conducted through the West Palm Beach (WPB) Detachment of the NUWC. Results and discussion of the test are presented in this paper.
