Q.ANT coordinates BMBF-funded project "QYRO": Development of nuclear spin-based quantum gyroscopes for new space applications

The QYRO project aims to develop a space-qualified and highly accurate angular rate sensor based on the quantum effect of nuclear magnetic resonance, which can be used to precisely control satellite orientation. New Space applications such as worldwide, infrastructure-independent access to the Internet via constellations of many mini communication satellites are a promising way of enabling areas with weak infrastructures to participate in the opportunities of the digital age. High-precision attitude sensors are a key technology in these CubeSat communications satellites, as they enable the precise alignment of satellites.
As project coordinator Q.ANT collaborates with TRUMPF Photonic Components GmbH, TRUMPF Laser GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, Ferdinand-Braun-Institut gGmbH (Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik) and the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (Galileo-Kompetenzzentrum) to successfully complete the QYRO project.
