Hoptroff Time Sync for Power Substations

The Need For Substation Time Sync Substations require time sync for many measurement applications. The most demanding is I-V sensing both sides of a transformer, requiring 4800 Hz samples to be timestamped ideally with 250ns local granularity (IEC Class A), but others are equally important, such as comparing synchrophasor measurements over transmis...

Time Synchronization for Secure Networks Using Fiber

Government and military networks often utilize the concept of unclassified networks vs classified networks to manage levels of information security. Since a complete "air-gap" around a highly sensitive network is not practical, every data connection is evaluated as a security risk. When it comes to accurate synchronization traceable to time standar...

Jamming and Spoofing Protection For GNSS Signals In Defense Applications

Problem We Solve Military bases, government facilities, and other fixed-site locations need a way to protect against the threat of signal jamming and spoofing. Because GNSS signals are relatively weak once they reach the surface of the Earth, they can be easily manipulated. Adversaries can turn low-cost SDRs into GPS jammers and spoofers. They then...

Keeping Your Clocks Accurate

Electronic clocks control critical functions in many applications. However, clocks are often designed for low cost rather than for keeping accurate time. Even fairly accurate computer clocks will vary due to manufacturing defects, changes in temperature, electric and magnetic interference, the age of the quartz crystal, or even system load. Even th...

Skydel 22.5 – HIL Simulation Made Easy

HIL testing is an essential step in the verification process of the Model-Based Design (MBD) approach. HIL testing is usually the last step before testing in the field and after Model-In-the-Loop (MIL), Software-In-the-Loop (SIL) or Chipset-In-the-Loop (CIL). This step is critical because it involves all the hardware and software that will be used ...

Vehicle Spoofing with Skydel

Description GNSS signal spoofing consists of broadcasting fake signals –over the real GNSS signals– in order to take control of a GNSS receiver that will continue to track those signals in error. GNSS is very sensitive to this type of attack due to the weakness of satellite signals at the earth's surface and the fact that these signals are public a...

Timing Calibration of a GNSS Receiver

GNSS is well-known for its ability to provide a position with sub-meter accuracy. However, it is less well-known that GNSS provides a very convenient way of obtaining nanosecond (or even sub-nanosecond) timing accuracy via a GNSS receiver. Indeed, in addition to the three spatial dimensions, GNSS enables the user to compute the clock bias and the d...
