That was exactly my solution but I'm waiting ti hear about his size,
power and cost budget.  If this has to run on Battery power for the
entire year the Rb unit is not going to work

The OP's 1 second per year goal is only asking for 3.2E-7 level
performance if I did the math correctly.   Even the $100 Rb is at
least 100 times better than required.
