Time Anomaly Detection Appliqué (TADA) is a mission-enabling innovation developed at The MITRE Corporation to provide a reliable, real-time notification of a timing discrepancy. TADA can protect military, government, and civilian infrastructure that utilizes time, frequency, and time pulses derived from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receivers. TADA provides an alarm when the time, frequency, or timing pulses derived from the GNSS receivers deviate from the expected values.

TADA is specifically designed to protect users from time-spoofing attacks. With TADA, the network or system operator is alerted when two specific timing sources begin to significantly differ.
