ViaLite RFoF links for military aircraft timing test support
High accuracy timing and synchronization signals are an essential requirement in mission-critical IT systems, which is why a leading military aerospace company is using ViaLite RF over fiber (RFoF) distributed GPS/GNSS equipment.
ViaLite’s GPS lossless distributed multi-port fiber optic links are being used to simultaneously transport the company’s timing signals from GPS antennas to multiple S650 GPS referenced Network Time Protocol (NTP) time servers, for timing-test support in a military aeronautics application.
Equipment being used includes ViaLite’s first-to-market, Multizone Lossless Splitters – providing GPS optical splitting (1x8, 1x16 and 1x32) – and the new 1U chassis with Local Integrated GPS Splitters (1×8, 2×8, 4×8, 1×16, 2×16). ViaLite’s compact Blue OEM modules were also supplied for the link receiver side.
“ViaLite equipment was chosen for its leading edge performance, that also provides a very cost effective manner in which to send GPS/GNSS signals from one antenna to multiple remote locations,” said ViaLite director of sales Craig Somach.
