Azerbaijan, Baku, May 4 / Trend A.Akhundov /
Head of the Azerbaijani State Committee for Standardization, Metrology and Patents
Ramiz Hasanov said that a time standard will be installed in downtown Baku this month.
"The time standard can be installed at the Boulevard," Hasanov told journalists.
He said the time standard was purchased from a British company Mikron and producer of the standard is an American company Fluke.
"Its delivery and installation will take a month," Hasanov said.
Earlier, the Azerbaijani State Committee approved the initial state time and frequency standard.
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, 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, 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.
Hasanov said international standards will be implemented in all aspects of tourism to celebrate 2011 as the Year of Tourism.
In addition, monitoring will be carried out at gas stations operating in the regions in the coming days.
"There are cases of mixing different brands of gasoline, in connection with which amonitoring will be launched," Hasanov said.
