Atomic Clock On A Chip Improving GPS Accuracy And Reliability

Accurate time measurement was the technology breakthrough that enabled longitude measurement. Much later the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) was also made possible by a further leap in time measurement – the atomic clock. Position determination accuracy and time measurement are intertwined. Accurate measurement of the length of time for GPS signals to travel from global positioning satellites to your GPS unit is what allows distances from locked satellites to be […]
