Spectracom’s TSync bus-level timing platform was integrated into a new small, rugged, Passive Detection and Reporting System (PDRS) to receive GPS, discipline an onboard rugged ovenized crystal oscillator and generate high precision time and frequency signals for system synchronization. It also delivers GPS coordinates for the system.

The development of the system greatly benefited from Spectracom's customization-to-COTS approach by adapting the platform into a standard VPX-based card without the need for non-recurring engineering charges. It offered the necessary ruggedization, small size, and low weight and power consumption to meet the goals of system portability, and is available with secure SAASM GPS.
