Baku, Azerbaijan: Azerbaijani State Committee on Standardization, Metrology and Patents approved the initial state time and frequency standard. The standard complex includes a synchroniser of GPS-receivers, a time and frequency standard (Fluke910R) and a timer-counter-analyser (Fluke6690) produced in the US.
The basic principle of the time and frequency standard is the frequency reception from the satellite through the GPS-antenna, which is regarded as the most accurate. It is formed by cesium decay, is synchronised via the time and frequency standard, and transfers information about the exact time in the country to all telecommunications systems.
The standard time will be applied throughout scientific research work and in communications, transport, medicine and other fields. In addition, the calibration of equipment to measure frequencies will be carried out using the new time and frequency standard.
