New Atomic Clocks to Get Precision Timing Down Cold, Back up GPS for Infrastructure

ColdQuanta received two development contracts from U.S. Government agencies worth $2.55M in total, based on the company’s Quantum Core technology that uses atoms cooled to a temperature of nearly absolute zero, and lasers to manipulate and control the atoms with extreme precision. According to the Boulder, Colorado-based company, cold atom quantum technology can be used for secure global navigation, quantum timekeeping, and communications.

Top Shelf: New Authoritative Compilation of PNT Technologies in the 21st Century

A new tome — make that two new tomes — join the bookshelf of essential and authoritative references for GNSS users, while widening the umbrella a good deal to cover all PNT technologies, their sensors and their integrations. Edited by four leading lights of the community and assistant-edited by two more, its list of authors rounds up another 131 of the “usual suspects,” the names that are seen repeatedly in the presentations at technical conference and on their organizing boards. In every one of 64 subject matters, the author(s) is/are recognized experts, in many cases the recognized expert, on the material.
