IAI’s proposed WITIS technology is GPS independent and capable of providing timing and synchronization for multi-static systems with sub-nanosecond accuracies, while staying within the SWaP goals provided by NASA. The proposed WITIS solution combines key technologies developed at IAI in the areas of:
WITIS can be designed and integrated, either as a standalone solution or as a tightly integrated applique with existing multi-static radar systems.
Potential NASA applications include
Once proven in the NASA domain, WITIS assisted beamforming applications of ultra-precision synchronization and localization could replace or augment differential GPS technologies used in surveying, control of autonomous vehicles, wireless sensor networks, and communication systems.
