  author={Stav Haldar and Iv{\'a}n Agull{\'o} and Anthony J. Brady and Antia Lamas-Linares and W. Cyrus Proctor and James E. Troupe},
We propose a satellite-based scheme to perform clock synchronization between ground stations spread across the globe using quantum resources. We refer to this as a quantum clock synchronization (QCS) network. Through detailed numerical simulations, we assess the feasibility and capabilities of a near-term implementation of this scheme. We consider a small constellation of nanosatellites equipped only with modest resources. These include quantum devices such as spontaneous parametric down…

Quantum two-way time transfer over a hybrid free-space and fiber link

As the superiority of quantum two-way time transfer (Q-TWTT) has been proved convincingly over fiber links, its implementation on free space links becomes an urgent need for remote time transfer



Atomic Clocks and Timing Systems in Global Navigation Satellite Systems

Accurate and ultra-stable atomic clocks have been recognized as the critical equipment for the precision Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). SpectraTime (SpT) and T4Science (T4S) are space
