What are GPS Disciplined Oscillators (GPSDO)?

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Mar 19, 2019 9:26:00 AM

GPS Disciplined Oscillators (GPSDO) are one of today's most trusted and accurate sources of timing.  These powerful devices (sometimes called GPS clocks) consist of a high-quality stable oscillator and a GPS receiver. The GPSDO works by disciplining (or steering) the oscillator output to a GPS device or GNSS satellite signal via a tracking loop.

What is a DoD Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)? (5 Core Principles)

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Mar 12, 2019 9:20:00 AM

A Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) is becoming critical in Department of Defense (DoD) systems. If you're unfamiliar with this critical system design approach (or need a little brush-up) you're in the right place (and should totally keep on reading to discover the 5 core principles).

But first, a few quick basics. MOSA is a business and technical strategy for easily developing new defense systems or modernizing existing ones. This will help the Department of Defense provide joint combat capabilities required for 21st century warfare.

MOSA also provides the ability to support and evolve these 21st century capabilities over their total life-cycle.

4 Hidden Mysteries of Quartz Crystal Oscillators (A Not-So-Boring History)

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Feb 12, 2019 9:04:00 AM

 

The development of crystal oscillators has literally changed the world. Technically that can (and is) said about many things. But think about it! Without crystal oscillators, we may have never seen precision timing in clocks, wide and clear radio broadcasts, or important communication methods within military and space programs.

Imagine how different our world might be without these now commonplace technologies.
