BSJ National Time Realization


Background

Background

  • The Bureau of Standards, Jamaica embarked on a Time and Frequency Program

  • Its aim was to establish a national Time Scale i.e. (our own local time) with traceability to UTC

  • Contribute to BIPM hence the calculation of UTC

  • The Bureau began procuring equipments to realize this project.

  • Bureau also embarked on Town Clock project


Objectives

Objectives

  • To make time a legal metrology quantity and thereby be able to create and disseminate local time to users of Time and Frequency, this will include;

    • Drafting of regulations to make time a legal metrology quantity.

    • An amendment to the Weights and Measurements Act to create legal time.

  • To establish a calibration lab capable of disseminating time and frequency measurement traceable to the SI. This will entails;

    • Establishing the local time scale and traceability to the SI through BIPM

  • As a SIM member, BSJ Jamaica was invited to participate in SIM Time and Frequency working group.

    …cont


  • Objectives1

    Objectives

    …cont

    • To establish time and frequency services from which revenue can be earned.

      • Establishment of a Network Time Service

      • Establishment of a voice time Service

      • Calibration Service (Time and Frequency based devices e.g. Stopwatches, timers, counters, tachometers, Signal Generators)


    Objectives2

    Objectives

    …cont

    • Provide a platform from which other areas (Especially AC/DC and Dimensional Metrology, Energy Metrology) can provide future services.


    Objectives3

    Objectives

    • To implement a state-of-the-art timekeeping and time dissemination Lab that has the capability to support user needs and also remain ahead of their future needs.

    • Maintaining traceability to other timing labs and to International Atomic Time.

    • To be recognized as a productive member of the world timekeeping community.


    Equipments

    Equipments
