PARIS (CNES PR) — On June 30, 2022, the European Commission selected the CARIOQA-PMP (Cold Atom Rubidium Interferometer in Orbit for Quantum Accelerometry – Pathfinder Mission Preparation) project as part of the Horizon Europe calls for tenders on quantum technologies for space gravimetry.
While gravimetry at the service of climate study is a theme to which the European Commission is very attentive, this project, coordinated by CNES, will make it possible to develop, within a European industrial framework, the engineering model of the accelerometer which will equip the CARIOQA demonstration space mission. This significant contribution aims to place Europe at the forefront of the development of quantum technologies for space.(more…)
