GPS SYNCHRONIZED DISCIPLINED RUBIDIUM FREQUENCY STANDARD

D. Earl Fossler

Abstract: A disciplined rubidium frequency standard steered by the corrected i PPS output from a GPS tining receiver or other stable 1 PPS source can provide a low phase noise, modest cost, frequency standard with long term frequency stability of a cesium standard and short term stability of better than 1x 10-11. Phase correlation to the 1 PPS input is maintained to within 50 nanoseconds during disciplining and within 100 nanoseconds during a five hour coasting period with no disciplining input.
