NTP is not as easy as you think.  Just doing the cryptography to handle
authentication is more then I would want to write.  When a free open source
ntpd exists it will be really hard to get people to help work on
re-inventing it.  But your idea to use a GPSDO to drive the system clock is
good.  People have done that and it works. You basically unsolder a TTL
"can oscillator" and put a small connector in it's place.
