The mRO-50 Ruggedized Oscillator from Orolia is a Robust Low SWaP-C Mini-Rubidium Oscillator with a frequency of 10 MHz. This ruggedized oscillator has been designed to meet the latest military and aerospace requirements where time stability and power consumption are critical. It has a wide-range operating temperature from -40°C to 80°C and can be used for a wide range of applications like underwater, military communications, radars, low earth orbit, electronic warfare, airborne and unmanned vehicles.
The oscillator provides a one-day holdover below 1µs and a retrace below 1E-10 in a form factor (50.8 x 50.8 x 20mm) that takes up only 51 cc of volume (about one-third of the volume compared to standard rubidium) and consumes only 0.36W of power, which is about ten times less than existing solutions with similar capabilities.
With these competitive advantages, the new mRO-50 Ruggedized miniaturized rubidium oscillator provides accurate frequency and precise time synchronization to mobile applications, such as military radio-pack systems in GNSS-degraded or denied environments.
