Abstract : This paper covers the work of the NATO Working Group on precise time and frequency (AC302/SG4/WG4) since its inception in 1988 to the end of 1993. The aim of the group was to produce STANAG 4430 detailing a standard interface for the transfer of precise time & frequency to assist the interoperability of NATO forces. The design of the interface is outlined together with the concepts leading to the design. The problem of providing and maintaining a traceable UTC in military user systems is described.
