Quantum Sensors and their impact on the Future of assured Positioning, Navigation, and Timing

Share

Quantum sensors have promised to deliver dramatic improvements in inertial navigation for more than two decades. While we have yet to see a quantum navigator in production, the supporting sensors have been maturing, and both the strengths and weaknesses of these sensors have been revealed. In this lecture we will discuss the basic principle of how quantum sensors work, the status of their development. and the readiness for deployment. In addition, some more details on nuclear magnetic resonance gyroscope will be shared. We will also examine how atomic magnetome- ters may play an important role in the future of quantum navigation.
