NanoSync IV® Model 424 -Low Profile

The NanoSync IV Low Profile is a smaller form factor GPS Position, Navigation, Time (PNT) and Frequency reference system that provides multiple reference outputs. The NanoSync IV Low Profile has a OCXO oscillator and is available with a civilian C/A GPS receiver or SAASM (Rockwell-Collins MPE-S GB-GRAM or Trimble Force 22E MRU GPS receiver) for military users. The NanoSync IV is packaged in a small, rugged enclosure ideally suited for embedded electronic warfare applications.

The NanoSync IV – Low Profile has been demonstrated to be compliant to the Joint Airborne SIGINT Architecture (JASA) Version 3.0, Annex 1, for Time, Frequency, Navigation and Geodesy (TFNG), making it suitable for Electronic Warfare (EW) COMINT and ELINT applications in fixed site, airborne and shipboard environments.

Description

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The NanoSync IV is a small form factor GPS Position, Navigation, Time (PNT) and Frequency reference system that provides multiple reference outputs and includes support for NTP & PTPv2 IEEE 1588-2008. The NanoSync IV has a Rubidium oscillator and can be equipped with a SAASM receiver (Rockwell-Collins MPE-S GB-GRAM or Trimble Force 22E MRU) for military users. The NanoSync IV is packaged in a small, rugged enclosure ideally suited for embedded electronic warfare applications.

The NanoSync IV has been demonstrated to be compliant to the Joint Airborne SIGINT Architecture (JASA) Version 3.0, Annex 1, for Time, Frequency, Navigation and Geodesy (TFNG), making it suitable for Electronic Warfare (EW) COMINT and ELINT applications in fixed site, airborne and shipboard environments.

NanoSync IV incorporates proven features designed into all FEI-Zyfer products, including exceptional holdover performance when GPS signals are lost or degraded. This assures continued system operation as a time and frequency reference. The NanoSync IV can be monitored and controlled through an RS-232 port using FEI-Zyfer’s Serial Communication Protocol and via the 10/100Base-TX RJ-45 Ethernet port.

As with all FEI-Zyfer time and frequency products, the NanoSync IV incorporates advanced, proprietary learning algorithms that compensate for external temperature changes and aging characteristics of the oscillator while operating in holdover. This FEI-Zyfer feature ensures accuracy and consistent performance throughout the specified operating temperature range.
