Quantum technologies for space gravimetry

< Back

Open Call Reference: HORIZON-CL4-2021-SPACE-01-62

The priority for this topic is the development of the technology leading to the deployment of a gravimeter pathfinder mission based on cold atom interferometry

– Development of EU technologies and components for a space quantum gravimeter or gradiometer
– Enhancement of the TRL up to TRL5 for cold atom interferometry components
– Development of software simulation tools to analyse the different mission concepts linked to these sensors or processing and analysis of the sensor data

– Support the EU space policy and the green deal by paving the way for the deployment of a future EU Earth observation mission making use of quantum gravimetry
– Ensure EU non-dependence for the development of capacities leading to the availability of quantum space gravimetry
– Enhance the TRL of all (critical) components necessary to build quantum gravimetry for space
