Research Institution

Vector Atomic, NIST, and OctoSig will design, build, and demonstrate a time transfer module capable of synchronizing mobile assets to better than 10 fs. The Heterodyne Integrated Photonics Package for Optical Synchronization (HIPPOS) module will use NIST’s established two-way optical time transfer scheme, which is insensitive to signal dropouts and turbulence and compensates for relative motion between moving platforms. HIPPO’s integrated design minimizes optical components and employs a low-risk integrated photonics approach that supports aggressive miniaturization, low-cost manufacturing, and high reliability.
