Precision Time Transfer Technology

Seeking a Business Advisor

Time signals are required to operate many forms of critical national infrastructure, including electrical power, gas and water utilities, railways and traffic management systems, and cyber security systems in data centres.

Today, the vast majority of time transfer solutions rely on GPS satellites, or other GNSS systems.  This raises concerns regarding the ease with which such signals can be jammed / spoofed by attackers, or indeed by accident.  There are also vulnerabilities regards control and ownership of the GNSS systems being foreign governments.

My technology addresses these concerns with a novel method based on existing high power radio signals which are difficult to interfere with and are under the control of domestic governments. 

My solution is able to synchronise with accuracies equivalent to GPS / GNSS systems but without the inherent vulnerabilities of those satellite based solutions.

Which university are you from?
