Ruggedized GNSS

Soldier is Using Laptop Computer and Radio for Communication During Military Operation in the Desert

GPS receivers are essential for military navigation, and accurate timing is essential to the GPS system. Precision timing components must provide the highest stability in the most dynamic conditions. If timing fails, receivers lose lock to satellites and navigation systems won’t receive critical data.

SiTime ruggedized Endura™ timing solutions are built to reliability operate in harsh environments, overcoming the inherent weaknesses of quartz and delivering robust performance—even under high levels of mechanical shock and vibration or extreme and rapidly changing temperatures.
