Satelles to present “An Alternative Source of Timing and Location using the Low Earth Orbit Iridium Satellite Constellation”

On June 6, 2017, Joseph V. Cordaro, Davis Shull of DOE Savannah River National Lab and Greg Gutt, Michael O’Connor of Satelles will present “An Alternative Source of Timing and Location using the Low Earth Orbit Iridium Satellite Constellation”
“In support of various US Government Agencies, the Savannah River National Laboratory has been leading an effort to consider the use of Satelles Time and Location (STL) as an alternative source of timing and location for US Critical Infrastructure as well as other US Government applications. STL has the ability to deliver precision time and location anywhere in the world. Static performance of sub 100 nano second and location accuracy of sub 50 meters has been demonstrated. STL, transmitted via the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Iridium Satellite Constellation has the ability for deep penetration into wooded areas, urban areas, indoors and triple canopy due to the higher power of a LEO constellation vs. GPS and the use of a higher power paging channel.
Recent efforts have focused on evaluating the capability under a variety of challenging scenarios. The status of the overall effort, development of User Equipment and performance data from testing at Savannah River Site as well as data from a recent test at the US Naval Observatory in which STL has been evaluated vs. the USNO/UTC Master Clock will be presented.” Link
