Azerbaijan approves state time and frequency standard
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 14 / Trend, A.Akhundov /
Azerbaijani State Committee on Standardization, Metrology and Patents approved the initial state time and frequency standard, the committee said on Thursday.
According to the report, a standard complex installed in the laboratory of electric quantitative units of the National Metrological Center conferred the initial state time and frequency standard in Azerbaijan, supported by the committee.
The standard complex includes a synchronizer of GPS-receivers, a time and frequency standard Fluke910R) and a timer-counter-analyzer (Fluke6690) produced in the U.S.
The basic principle of the time and frequency standard is the frequency reception from the satellite through the GPS-antenna, which is regarded as the most accurate. It is formed by cesium decay, is synchronized via the time and frequency standard, and transfers information about the exact time in the country to all telecommunications systems.
The standard time will be applied throughout scientific research work and in communications, transport, medicine and other fields.
In addition, the calibration of equipment to measure frequencies will be carried out using the new time and frequency standard.
