Title: Improvements in SIM Time Network and SIM Time Scale Performance
Published: October 10, 2014
Abstract: We report recent results achieved within the Sistema Interamericano de Metrología (SIM) regarding the multinational cooperation program in the field of time and frequency metrology. We discuss the performance of the SIM Time Network (SIMTN) and the SIM Time Scale (SIMT). We emphasize results achieved during the time period from May 2013 to May 2014. We found a significant improvement in both accuracy and stability of the SIMT approaching those of the UTCr of the Bureau International des Poides et Mesures (BIPM).
