New Generation Low SWaP Rugged Time and Frequency Server

Spectracom has introduced a new generation, low SWaP rugged time and frequency server, called VersaSync. VersaSync is a low SWaP (low Size, Weight and Power), high performance GPS master clock and network time server that delivers accurate, software configurable time and frequency signals under all circumstances, including GNSS-denied environments.

Its compact size and high level of ruggedization make VersaSync suitable for mobile applications in harsh environment. Its small footprint allows for easy integration of the time and frequency functionality into any system’s architecture.

  • GNSS master clock and NTP/PTP time server
  • Low size, weight and power
  • Ruggedized (MIL-STD-810G)
  • High versatility with software configurable inputs/outputs
  • Design can be efficiently customized to match specific customer requirements
  • Easy integration due to small footprint and low power consumption

VersaSync includes the timing functionality required in modern, network-centric applications:

  • NTP/PTP precise time transfer over Ethernet, including security protocols that prevent network vulnerabilities.
  • Low phase noise 10MHz frequency distribution
  • Configurable pulse signals, including IRIG or HaveQuick timecodes
  • Serial link Time of Day (ToD) messages

VersaSync takes one or more precise timing reference signals as inputs, then converts and distribute those timing references to other devices so their clocks are almost as accurate as the VersaSync.

VersaSync accommodates an OCXO or a CSAC oscillator, allowing the unit to maintain frequency and time accuracy for long periods of GPS/GNSS outage. In addition, it can be re-synchronized by an alternative external reference.

VersaSync physical inputs and outputs are software configurable and can adapt to various application requirements for mission-to- mission configurability.
