High-Accuracy Time & Frequency for Satellite Communications
Time accuracy plays a critical role in satellite communications. Terminals and satellites are constantly communicating to maintain synchronization and avoid drift. If, at an instant in time, the terminal is transmitting on one frequency and the satellite is receiving on another, the signal will be lost. Synchronization failures in military communications and radar applications can become national defense vulnerabilities.
Microsemi supports National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), U.S. Air Force (USAF) and other satellite communications applications by providing reliable, stable, ruggedized and precise timing systems for satellites, ground stations and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers. Microsemi also provides signal generators of all waveforms for the US Department of Defense (DoD), US intelligence agencies and allied countries to the fulfill timing requirements for Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) applications like navigation, targeting, intelligence and security.
