John Bernard, Andre Charbonneau, Bill Hoger, Hai Pham and Marina Gertsvolf

Abstract: The demand for secure and accurate time has been growing in recent years in telecommunications, infrastructure, navigation and finance. The requirements are for traceable time with sub micro-second precision. Currently available methods have technical or reliability limitations in achieving this goal. The NRC Remote Clock product offers secure traceable time dissemination to a remote user. Our method achieves few tens of nanoseconds uncertainty and relies on a remote high quality clock that is controlled from the NRC main lab.
