It is 1,000 times more precise than any other commercial system currently available and ticks 10 billion times per second. The  “cryogenic” in the device’s real name comes from the 1,200-carat sapphire crystal that needs to be cooled to minus 267 degrees Celsius (around 512 degrees Fahrenheit) — only a few degrees above absolute zero.

The prime goal of the Sapphire Clock will be to upgrade the sensitivity of radar signalling in the defence radar network. It will help improve the sensitivity of the network in detecting foreign threats by air or sea by broadcasting signals which are 1,000 times purer than the radar’s current technology.
