BIPM calibration scheme for UTC time links — BIPM pilot expermiment to strenghen Asia-Europe very long baselines

The calibration uncertainty (uB) is the dominant part in the total uncertainty budget of the UTC generation [1,3]. There are two calibration strategies: (a) Receiver calibration and (b) Time link calibration. The state-of-the-art [1,4,5] of the uB is of order 5 ns for GNSS time transfer based on the strategy (a) and is 1 ns for TWSTFT based on the strategy… CONTINUE READING
