Furuno Conducted a Session Lecture and Booth Exhibition at WSTS

May 22, 2024

Furuno Electric Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Nishinomiya, Japan) conducted the following session lecture and exhibited a booth at the Workshop on Synchronisation and Timing Systems (WSTS) held in San Diego, USA, from 7 to 9 May 2024.

Session Lecture

  • Title : Time Synchronization Using LEO-PNT in Urban Canyons
  • Presenter : Yoji Takayama, Takahiko Ikeda
  • Schedule : May 8, 2024 Session time 11:45 - 12:00
  • Summary :
    The exponential growth of low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites presents a significant opportunity to offer a more accurate, secure, and resilient time synchronization, which is an alternative to or complement to the GNSS. We refer to the modern technology for time synchronization with LEO satellites as LEO-PNT.
    This presentation provided the results of time synchronization using PULSAR™, a dedicated commercial LEO-PNT provided by Xona Space Systems, Inc., in urban canyons where the GNSS suffers from inaccuracy.
    As the time synchronization with LEO-PNT can be much more accurate than that of the GNSS, we believe the LEO-PNT will contribute to the next generation of wireless communication, which requires high-speed data transfer, low latency, and concurrent multiple access in populous areas, that is, urban canyons.
