Symmetricom announces new contract for technology advancement of miniaturized/chip scale atomic clock products

SAN JOSE, USA: Symmetricom Inc., a leader in precise time and frequency technologies, announced today that the ManTech Program, funded by the US Army, GPS Wing and Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), has agreed to sponsor enhancements to Symmetricom’s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) technology.

Atomic clock technology advancements, as well as research on precise time recovery and IEEE 1588 Precise Time Protocol applications, will be discussed at the 42nd Annual Precise Time and Time Interval (PTTI) Systems and Applications Meeting on November 15-18, at the Hyatt Regency Reston, Virginia.

At PTTI, Symmetricom’s world recognized timing experts will lead key tutorials and present industry papers, as well as exhibit its industry-leading precise timing solutions for government/military and metrology applications.

“Symmetricom is a leader in the development of Chip Scale Atomic Clock technology, as demonstrated by our successful completion of Phases I through IV of the original DARPA CSAC development contract,” said Dan Scharre, executive vice president and general manager at Symmetricom.

“This contract is a strong vote of confidence in our continued leadership with miniature, low power atomic clock technology such as our CSAC product. The ManTech award funds us to accelerate manufacturing cost reductions to more aggressively address the broad applications of our product.”
