Rakon Ultra Stable Oscillator on Jason-3 Satellite Helps Deliver Critical Scientific Oceanography Data for Scientists
1 November 2016
As the Jason-3 satellite services switch over from Jason-2 delivering significant ocean circulation and climate change information, global technology company Rakon has been following its journey with interest. The satellite was launched in January this year and contains Rakon’s USO (Ultra Stable Oscillator).
Jason-3 is the fourth mission in a series of satellite missions which measure the height of the ocean’s surface. It continues the two decades of ocean surface topography measurements begun by the TOPEX/Poseidon satellite mission in 1992 and the Jason-1 mission, (launched in 2001) and the currently operating OSTM and Jason-2 missions.
