Timing onboard the aircraft for investigators.

There were three obvious choices:

  • direct GPS antenna feed
  • Network Time Protocol (NTP), single digit millisecond accuracy.
  • IRIG-B, double digit microsecond accuracy.

It was recommended that all aircraft provide at least IRIG-B. Time would be provided in UTC, not GPS time.
