Analysis of Methods for Transmission of Precise Time Across Long Distances

Romas Šimkus


With the development of technology is an integral variety of devices and systems development. The world is not to supply for many systems for the transmission of the precise time acros long distances. The main way in which this can be done is to use satellite systems such as GPS (Global Positioning System). We will have to look into this system basic principles, operation of satellite signals and ephemerides data, possible sources of errors and the GPS and UTC time scales. All this aspects will be dealt in this article.
