Time Transfer

Distributing stable timing signals through optical fibre and free space


Time Transfer Synchronisation

The ability to accurately synchronise remote clocks through time transfer is critical for position, navigation and timing. GPS has been widely available for decades and modern society has evolved a deep reliance on the precision timing and position signals it provides. 

QuantX Labs is developing methods of time transfer over optical fibre and optical free-space links utilizing both conventional and quantum techniques. Compared to current techniques, these approaches have the potential for vastly improved performance and guaranteed security, acting as the building blocks towards a secure and flexible alternate architecture for a GPS-like timing and position system.

Key applications:

  • Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing
  • Network Synchronisation and data centers
  • Finance
  • Space-based services
