Frequency calibration over GNSS service

SYREF2.5

Hardware description GNSS unit cost Service (yearly)
SYREF v 2.5 GNSS receiver and processing unit 6 k€ 4 k€ / year

Service include 12 monthly certificates of calibration, automated data transfer (in and out), data processing, technical support on a 8×5 basis, maintainance and data monitoring. This service is intended to provide the user's local frequency standard with a frequency traceability to UTC via the french national reference UTC(OP) at 1×10-13 level (after 30 days). This service can be found in our 2-06 accredited scope (internal procedure PT-54). Contact us for detailed information about the service requirements and operation.

(This service is covered by the Arrangement for Mutual Recognition (CIPM MRA))

Our lab is affiliated to LNE through the brand LNE-LTFB, which combines the TF Department of the FEMTO-ST Institute and the TF Team of UTINAM (Observatory of Besancon) in a single entity.

Through the LNE-LTFB brand, we are at the top level of the French metrological chain for

  • Phase Noise measurements, i.e. L(f) or Sphi(f)
  • Frequency Stability (short term, < 100s), i.e., Allan Variance

Check the complete and up-to-date description of those lines in our 2-13 accredited scope

LNE-LTFB also provide accredited certificates of calibration for the following quantities

  • time interval
  • frequency
  • frequency stability (long term > 100s)

Covered instrumentation include frequency standards, time/frequency counters, pulse generators, chronograph, clock watches.
