Frequency and Timing System for Esa's Deep Space Antennas DSA1&2

Maser / Cesium Based F & T System

  • Providing a controlled environment for the atomic clocks.
  • Generation of very low phase noise frequency reference signals.
  • Generation of highly accurate time reference signals.
  • Buffering of all output signals for distribution.
  • Monitoring of the atomic clocks versus GPS.
  • Improving the reliability of the output signals by fully redundant hardware configuration.
  • Internal signal cross strapping for mutual performance monitoring and automatic switch over in failure case.
