HF broadcast service operating at 10 MHz under call sign ATA to synchronise the user clock within a millisecond

INSAT satellite based standard time & frequency broadcast service offers Indian Standard Time correct up to ±10 microsecond and frequency calibration up to ±10-10.

The ATA and INSAT systems provide time synchronization and frequency calibration on a continuous basis.

Equipment Used for Calibration The National Physical Laboratory

The time and frequency standards at NPL are maintained with the help of four atomic caesium standards
