Time Transfer System TTS-4

It has been over 20 years since first “TTS” was introduced. Single frequency TTS-1 as first in the family, a very successful TTS-2, then TTS-3 with GLONASS, now TTS-4.

Time Transfer System TTS-4 is the next version of the receiver for long-distance atomic clocks comparsions. The experience gained from the previous versions of the time transfer systems let us implement new functionalities - unique in the world for this type of equipment. The receiver is able to operate simultaneously with all currently available satellite systems, at all available frequencies, while offering high precision and accuracy of the measurement results. Standarized output data formats provide easy comparison of results with other laboratories and global time scale co-generation.

  • GPS / GLONASS / GALILEO / WAAS / EGNOS systems support in one receiver
  • precision for phase observation for a short term, short baseline precision <12ps rms
  • precision for code observation  <0.5ns rms
  • 216 measurement channels
  • Output data formats: RINEX and CGGTTS (the only receiver supporting CGGTTS output data format for GLONASS system)
  • CGGTTS data availability: 30 sec. after each observation session
  • Access to the receiver via the local console \ built-in touch screen, web interface and remote access via the Internet (access to both the observations and the configuration of the receiver)
  • Over 140 time transfer systems delivered all over the world

Piktime Systems time transfer systems are successfully used inter alia: 

  • Control segments of navigation satellite systems
    • GLONASS (Russia),
    • GALILEO (Fucino/Italy, GALILEO Precise Time Facility),
    • ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization, India),
  • Leading physical laboratories and metrological institutes
    • BIPM (Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, France),
    • VNIIFTRI (Russian National Measurement Institute, Russia),
    • PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Germany),
    • USNO (United States Naval Observatory, USA),
    • OP (Observatoire de Paris, France),
    • INRIM (National Institute of Metrological Research, Italy),
    • NPL (National Physical Laboratory, India),
    • GUM (Główny Urząd Miar, Poland)
  • and many other time laboratories located all over the world
