In order to have a secure navigating future, NASA scientist was working on the futuristic clock for space. This lead to the human exploration of the solar system. The clock will be smaller and lighter in weight. The clock is more precise in magnitudes so that clock will work in space. All these statements are made by the NASA scientists. The work on a clock is done under the supervision of engineers at NASA.
Clock work is going in jet propulsion laboratory in Pasadena, California. Almost all work is completed; deep space automatic clock need to be adjusted in the system of spacecraft that will take into the orbit in 2017.this report was given by us space agency.
This clock plays a critical role in the navigation of time. This clock is useful for the future space deep mission.by this clock, we calculate the distance how long signals takes to be travel. Before this the ground-based and antenna pins were used to calculate the distance of signal takes to travel. Sometimes it takes so long time to calculate. Or sometimes show error during the procedure of calculation. A navigation team reached to spacecraft in order to check the proper functioning of the clock.so that any error occurs they can make the corrections. This clock leads to the one-way tracking, there is no need to send back signal to earth.
This clock will be a safe navigation journey. They can calculate the position of the astronauts and velocity of the spacecraft when they want to do. All these things come to be true because of atomic space clock said by the NASA. This will reduce the load to antennas and help to track the single antenna. It will also improve the quantity of radio data and precision to.it is helpful in determining the planet gravity field. All these things were stated by the NASA scientist. This instrument is developed by the NASA. The clock is based on survey satellite technology.
It is used for the precise radio navigation. Radio frequencies help us to determine the position of the spacecraft.it is miniaturized.it is made up of mercury-ion.it is ultra-precise in nature. This clock is the today’s best navigation clock. The project is sponsored by the space technology mission directorate. This project is managed by the jet propulsion laboratory.it is a low mass atomic clock.it will consist of GPS signals in order to allocate the location of the spacecraft. This clock will deliver the accuracy of spacecraft in the solar system. The clock also has a function of terrestrial navigation services.
It is a new frontier in ultra-precise space navigation. Mission name: deep space atomic clock, technology demonstration mission.it was launch in March 2017. Mission duration was one year. Mass of the instrument is 16kg/35ibs.six of the instrument is 29cmx27cmx23cm/11in x11inx9in.
Ground-based atomic service is accurate but it is very bulky in weight.it is power hungry. This is very sensitive to the environmental variations.it is miniature and toughened in order to the planet. They were working on the more efficient way of tracking signals. This will benefit future generations and radio applications.it will improve deep space navigation. This is ultra-stable.to calculate one microsecond there is an efficient use of mercury –ions.
Key facts based on deep atomic space clock: considered to be a more precise clock and calcite better microseconds due to better efficiency of mercury ions. Proper use of mercury ions in order to have a proper flow of atomics magnitudes. It is an improved navigation system.one can measure the effects of Jupiter gravitational pulls on its moon in less time.it also provide onboard navigation drive .it is helpful for the future ex-exploration astronauts. It will also reduce the mission cost to certain extent.it is a demonstration unit and payload for launch it on the orbit.
As we all know time is everything. Deep space atomic clock is a 21st-century navigation clock.it will create instability in the atmosphere of the space. This clock is a timepiece for tomorrow generations.it will lead to deep space radio station services. It is a paradigm shifting technology.it will collect more accurate data. At JPL Flight testing is setup. This will result in a positive environmental testing.it will result in a optimize performance of the clock. It can also estimate the subsurface ocean.it is used in the ultraviolet region.it used to calculate the electronic frequency.it is famous for its accurate timings and frequency standards.it is based on the nuclear physics.to coagulate it uses the microwave signals. It is based on absolute zero temperature. The first-time idea was suggested by the lord kelvin in 1879.in the 1990s there are four factors that lead to the changes in the clock. Laser cooling is the first factor.Fabry -Perot cavities. Optical combs frequency. Laser spectroscopy. They focus on smaller, portable, cheaper and more energy efficient.it should be more stable and reliable.it lead too many scientific application.it leads to navigational satellite system.it will depend upon the frequency and time standards. They set up at the sites of time signal radio transmitters. They are used on long and medium waves.it is used in scientific discipline.it is used in radio astronomy.it directly receives the radio signals and radio drive signals.it travels with the maximum amount of speed.it is based on the time dilation.it is directly based on the gravitational force.it was based on the general theory of relativity. Time passé s faster from the center of gravity. This is because of the massive objects.it is based on the inertial system of observation. The effect was based on the Lorentz observation.it works under the microgravity.it provides time stamp.it were based on the natural oscillation of the cesium atoms. They act like a gear and travel at a faster speed.it also used to calculate time and speed. The International Space Station Atomic Clock Ensemble in Space (ACES) is a clock ensemble comprising two clocks: one hydrogen maser clock and one cesium clock, and an accompanying system to derive an optimized time reference. The ACES has excellent stability, but relatively large mass.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)-supported Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) is a miniaturized clock optimized for a small mass but has the relatively low stability that does not support deep space spacecraft autonomous navigation.
Scan’s Deep Space Atomic Clock (DSAC) is a single clock with excellent stability and medium to low relative mass for small spacecraft autonomous navigation.
