"Precise Time Scales for Timekeeping & Navigation Systems "

A time scale is the answer to the question “what time is it?” and keeping time, with several synchronized devices, is a must for metrological institutions as well as for navigation systems, and many other applications as energy transmission, telecommunication, and even managing the financial transactions. Keeping time means having appropriate clocks, measurement systems, mathematical algorithms, synchronization techniques, and a reference time. These time scale components will be reviewed in the case of the generation of the international reference time scale UTC, the coordinated universal time, and also in the timekeeping activities of the Global Satellite Navigation Systems, showing similarities, challenges, and the most promising research directions.
