After being selected by the European Commission as part of the Tender looking for alternative or complementary solution to Galileo for time synchronization solutions, SCPTime wins in partnership with its partner Teledyne e2v, based in Essex in the UK, the funding competition “Innovation in Time Dissemination and Application” and will conduct the feasibility study in the UK.
This call was launched in April 2021 by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency as part of NTC* project led by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). The first feasibility studies have started in December 2021 under the name PURETIME**.
A two-fold industrial expertise in the field of Time/Frequency of both partners integrates all the necessary elements to be successful. Mainly, SCPTime owns three international patents, its parent company GORGY TIMING has 45 years expertise in time servers designing and manufacturing, and the know-how in design of atomic micro-clocks of Teledyne is indisputable.
We are delighted to be working with SCPTime on this vital project and our joint skills and capabilities will make a difference that can really benefit our society.
