Royal Observatory Greenwich and Royal Greenwich Observatory (at
Herstmonceaux 1947-1990, then Cambridge 1990-1998, before closing)
provided astronomical and navigational products for GMT, GCT, GMAT,
GMST, UT, UT0, UT1, UT2 (used for radio time signals), ET, etc.
They did participate in CUT, originally from RGO, NPL, USNO, then BIH.
The atomic standard TAI, its civil UTC derivative, and frequencies, are
physical standards set and provided by NMIs coordinated by the BIPM.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
