New Sovereign Technologies to Support Critical Australian Surveillance Capability

Reading time ( words)

BAE Systems Australia congratulates Adelaide-based technology company Cryoclock, the maker of the most precise clock in the world, on completing its move to Lot 14 in Adelaide.

BAE Systems Australia has been working with Cryoclock for 18 months, testing the development of the Sapphire Clock, which will enhance the JORN Phase-6 capability through the integration of the Clock at three JORN radar sites across regional Australia.

The Sapphire Clock uses time to measure distance and is so precise that it gains or loses just one second every 40 million years.

The performance of the Sapphire Clock will improve JORN’s ability to detect objects in a wider range of air and sea conditions around Australia’s borders.

Director of Battlespace Integrated Solutions, BAE Systems Australia, Steve Wynd, said, “We are committed to helping to strengthen Australia’s industrial high-tech capability and to supporting highly skilled Australian jobs well into the future. So we are pleased to be partnering with Cryoclock to use this new, sovereign technology to enhance JORN - world-leading high frequency systems technology that provides critical sovereign surveillance capability for Australia.”

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.
