Trimble Week Number Rollover Details

Trimble Week Number Rollover Details

Trimble Week Number Rollover Details 

Trimble have brought to our attention an upcoming event that could affect the performance of their GPS devices.

The Problem

On April 6, 2019, there will be a GPS rollover that could affect all GPS / Timing units in the world, regardless of manufacturer.  

The Background

In addition to providing accurate location information, the Global Positioning System provides accurate timing information to many critical systems – power grid, communications, financial markets, emergency services, and industrial control to name a few. It also includes the ability to transmit the proper date and time to a receiver by supplying the receiver with the current week and the current number of seconds into the week. This allows the receiver to translate the date and time into a more typical format – day, month, year, and time of day.

However, the...
