VersaSync Rugged GPS

VersaSync Rugged GPS Time & Frequency Reference

VersaSync Overview

All-in-One Time & Frequency Solution

VersaSync is a high performance GPS master clock and network time server that delivers accurate, software configurable time and frequency signals under all circumstances, including GNSS-denied environments. Its compact size and high level of ruggedization make VersaSync suitable for mobile applications in harsh environments. Its small footprint allows for easy integration of the time and frequency functionality into systems architecture.

Versa Platform - Resilient PNT for Mobile Applications


  • GNSS master clock and NTP/PTP time server

  • Low size, weight and power

  • Ruggedized  (MIL-STD-810G)

  • High versatility with software configurable inputs/outputs

  • Design can be efficiently customized to match specific customer requirements

  • Easy integration due to small footprint and low power consumption

VersaSync Features

Backed by more than four decades of Orolia's timing solutions expertise, VersaSync includes all the timing functionality required in modern, network-centric applications:

  • NTP/PTP precise time transfer over Ethernet, including security protocols    that prevent network vulnerabilities
  • Low phase noise 10 MHz frequency distribution
  • Configurable pulse signals, including IRIG or HaveQuick timecodes
  • Serial link Time Of Day (ToD) messages

A Perfect Fit for GPS-Denied Environments

VersaSync accommodates an OCXO oscillator, allowing the unit to maintain frequency and time accuracy for long periods of GPS/GNSS outage. In addition, it can be re-synchronized by an external reference.

Case Studies

More Info
A defense customer needed a time synchronization solution for test range data to replace a legacy radio frequency distribution system. Data recorded from test missions at various locations must be time stamped for data center synchronization across the communications network, since accurate data is critical for evaluating system performance in battlefield scenarios.

More Info
A leading defense contractor needed a mobile, rugged mission timing and sync reference that could distribute accurate timing to network devices onboard tactical vehicles. Specifically, they needed a device that could provide mission timing accuracy 24 hours per day in hostile, GPS-denied environments. The device would be part of a major C4ISR program for operational battlefield management capability for an Allied nation, and would be integrated into a continuous operations platform for situational awareness.

White Papers

More Info
Military communications and intelligence-collection functions, traditionally associated with fixed sites and large platforms, are being pushed to tactical vehicles and sophisticated Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs). This results in more C5ISR systems being installed on mobile platforms. Whether in the air, on land, or at sea, these vehicles will impart shocks and vibrations to their electronics, sometimes severely. In high vibration environments, the system designer must account for induced phase noise which can drastically affect overall performance. This white paper discusses the challenges of keeping low noise signals pure in any environment.
