Description

Through this project algorithms developed within UL for
real-time estimation of a geostationary satellite position will
be implemented and tested in a satellite modem platform
facilitating the transfer of a 1 PPS (pulse per second) time
signal with at least microsecond accuracy between remote
locations over satellite. The overall system will consist of
ground master stations deploying a specially programmed
satellite modem capable of two-way (uplink/downlink)
communication supplying timing via geostationary satellite
to one-way (downlink only) slave receivers. The approach
developed at UL is simple enough to allow real-time
computation while being good enough to provide sufficient
data to minimise the error on the time signal as received at
the slave stations. The project has as goal to develop a
product envisaged as the first off-the-shelf system allowing
users to receive a high-quality accurate time signal as an
alternative to GPS and providing microsecond or sub-
microsecond accuracy
