The ptf 3203A SAASM solution is a unique configuration that couples the latest in SAASM capability to a full featured time and frequency GPS unit.

The ptf 3203A SAASM solution adds a special interface to allow the unit to operate with the highly popular Rockwell Collins DAGR handheld SAASM receiver (available separately from Rockwell Collins to authorized users), allowing the unit to be used in critical field applications. Available in both 1U (3203A) and 2U (3204A) versions, the units can be configured as a high
performance frequency standard, a comprehensive time standard, or both.

Performance is application tailored with local oscillator options including rubidium(standard), and OCXO.

In standard configration, the unit is equipped with 10MHz, 1PPS and IRIG B(am) outputs. Additional options for other output frequencies are also available. Internal RF distribution can be fitted to provide up to 10(3203A) or 20(3204A)10MHz outputs .
In addition to the standard 1PPS and IRIG B outputs the unit provides NTP. The 1PPS output is accurate within <120ns (1 sigma) of UTC(USNO).
