Abstract
The (Vibration Isolated Master Clock) VIMC approach is low-risk high pay-off solution to providing an extremely stable (very low phase noise/error) timing capability for avionic systems enabling high reliability communications (and GPS backup). The VIMC uses COTS materials with well-established performance but in a very novel design approach that provides high levels of passive attenuation of transmission noise into the electronics. The VIMC also provides a straightforward interface with the legacy systems.
