Abstract : Platform distribution systems form the link between a time dissemination system traceable to the U.S. Naval Observatory master clock system and the local systems that require precise timing. The distribution system serves the functions of establishing and maintaining accurate time and frequency and distributing it to the user systems. Although the designs of these systems vary widely, there are certain technical factors that are repeatedly encountered. In this paper, these factors and other considerations that are important when designing or specifying platform distribution systems are discussed. Also presented are certain areas in which standardization could benefit not only platform distribution system implementation but the user systems development as well.
