GPS and Time Metrology GPS is base for the most common used long-haul time and frequency measurement methods within the time community, it is: –precise (3ns code, ca 100ps phase for frequency), –truly global, –low cost, use is free of charge, –reliable, robust (during peacetime) and very well monitored, –well understood (code). In combination with other GNSS, for example GLONASS and the future GALILEO, it offers even better robustness and performance.
GPS and Time Metrology Due to its excellent performance (code) it is primarily used to form TAI and UTC. The use of carrier phase (CP) allows to exploit an unmatched accuracy for frequency measurements, but some aspects of CP are still ongoing research! SP GPS time metrology research involves for example: –real-time frequency estimation, –post processing (CP and Code), –comparison with other accurate techniques (TWSTFT), –the use of CP methods on the application niveau (GPS aided clock transport, cable length measurements,...).
