Synchronization of ADIS16465

Am I understanding correctly from the data sheet that it's impossible to get timestamped data (according to internal clock) from the IMU module? I'm looking into different possibilities to synchronize the module in existing setup and the easiest way is if I could get accurate timestamps from the sensor and then use a time translator algorithm (e.g. GitHub - ethz-asl/cuckoo_time_translator: algorithms for synchronizing clocks ) to translate the internal sensor time to system time. However this doesn't seem possible with ADIS16465?

 

If this simple solution is out of question, I would really appreciate if I could get some hints as to what approach is typically used for synchronizing the module. E.g. what additional hardware can I use as an external clock and how it can be synced to either GPS or (even better) PTP.

Thanks a lot!
