GPS Weekly Time Converter

This calculator and converter requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. In order to convert conventional time to weekly GPS time, select the day of the week, an hour, minute and second and click on Convert. GPS Time is a uniformly counting time scale. GPS time was born at the 1/5/1980 to 1/6/1980 midnight. January 6, 1980 is a Sunday. GPS Time counts in weeks and seconds of a week from this instant. The weeks begin at the Saturday/Sunday transition. The days of the week are numbered, with Sunday being 0, Saturday is day 6. GPS week 0 began at the beginning of the GPS Time Scale. Within each week the time is usually denoted as the second of the week. This is a number between 0 and 604,800 ( 60 x 60 x 24 x 7). This converter returns the weekly time in GPS seconds; the time that you enter is the SOW. If you know the number of the GPS week since 1980, you may enter it and get the total correct GPS time for the day and time you entered.
