Statum 1 Time Server, GPS Are You Ready for the Next GPS WNRO (Week Number Rollover)?

Do your networks or systems use Coordinated Universal Time, or UTC? April 6, 2019, is probably a date worth marking in advance. Unlike a regular calendar event or holiday, this day will mark a special rollover of the GPS week number, or WNRO, that helps receivers tell time more precisely.

The only question is whether your devices will react to the rollover event properly. Here's what you should know.

    As of January 20, 19, Avidyne is not ready and is being held back by the government shutdown. They have a Plan B that they are working on. Other suppliers of GPS processors are unknown at this time. Garmin, uAvionix and others with embedded GPS chips like transponders, UAT's, ELT's, PLB's, etc. We'll keep an eye on it
