Spectracom has recently introduced a new generation, low SWaP, rugged time and frequency server, called VersaSync.
Designed specifically for flight test, telemetry, C4ISR, and mobile communication systems, the VersaSync is a high performance GNSS master clock and network time server that delivers accurate, software-configurable time and frequency signals in all circumstances, including GNSS-denied environments.
Standard VersaSync configurations are designed in accordance to VITA 75 which was developed for easy integration of subsystems in mobile platforms. The overall volume is under 1 litre, the weight is less than 1 kilogram, and its power consumption is approximately 10 watts. The list of design features for harsh environmental conditions include mil-performance circular connectors, a sealed enclosure (IP65), and an efficient heat transfer via the conduction-cooled based plate.
VersaSync is available with various global navigation satellite receivers including multi-constellation GNSS receivers and SAASM encrypted GPS with an upgrade path to M-Code. Additional references can be added as a back-up to, or in lieu of, navigation satellite signals.
