Development of ultra-stable frequency reference signals generator based on cold ytterbium ions, aimed at a significant increase of the accuracy of geopositioning, space navigation, and introducing new applications of global navigational satellites systems.


Development of transportable optical frequency standard with daily instability not less than 5⋅10-16 for the new generation of GLONASS' on-board synchronisation devices, thus enhancing the precision of geopositioning down to 20 cm and allowing new applications of global navigational satellites systems.

Expected results

Development and testing modules for optical frequency standard and its integration into the experimental setup of on-board frequency reference. This should decrease the size and improve operational properties of frequency standards, and could be later used to refine the following applications: synchronisation systems, detecting and controlling air, ground and underwater transport systems, remote sensing systems, on-board frequency standard.
