Bliley Technologies, Inc., an international provider of crystal-based frequency control solutions, and Allan Space-Time Solutions, LLC, lead by renowned atomic clock physicist, David W. Allan, have teamed up to form a new, co-owned company, EQUATE Space-Time Technologies, LLC.

"We formed EQUATE Space-Time Technologies to develop a first-of-its-kind technology holding outstanding potential to provide precise time and frequency, position, velocity, acceleration, local vertical and orientation in a denied-GPS field environment (including building interiors, underground and in forestation)," said David Allan. "We expect that EQUATE technology will serve as an ideal military navigation tool for individuals, small units, sensor/surveillance platforms, unmanned aerial and undersea vehicles, as well as for avionic and space applications."

John W. Cline, President and CEO of Bliley Technologies, indicated that Bliley will serve as the headquarters for EQUATE Space-Time Technologies, and will also develop crystal and oscillator-based technologies for the new company.

"We are more than pleased to have been selected by David Allan as a partner and are confident that, together, we have established a winning combination between Bliley's frequency control expertise in the military market and Allan Space-Time Solutions' world-recognized intellectual capital in the precise timing arena," said Cline.

EQUATE Space-Time Technologies' immediate plans include development of a test system to prove the company's technology concepts.

About David W. Allan, Founder of Allan Space-Time Solutions, LLC:

David W. Allan spent 32 years of his career at the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colo., where he was responsible for the generation of official time for the United States, coordinating that time with other nations, and with the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) - assisting the BIPM in their task of generating official time for the world.

Allan consulted for the U.S. Department of Defense in characterizing and using atomic clocks in space for GPS. He and his team developed the GPS common-view technique, which was adopted by the several contributing nations toward the generation of International Atomic Time (TAI) and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Amongst numerous other achievements, he developed a technique for obtaining military-level time accuracy from GPS without having a military receiver. Receivers using this technique have been deployed throughout the world for synchronizing telecommunications networks and wireless (cell-site) transmitters.

An award-winning scientist, Allan was nominated in 1992 as the NIST nominee in physics for the U.S. Department of Commerce Gold Medal. He founded Allan Space-Time Solutions, LLC, a scientific consulting firm, in 2001.
