Compact Clock for Small Satellite Applications – Engineering Model

This proposal is the second phase (of four phases), 18-month plan that will develop and test a TRL5 proof-of-concept, Engineering Model of a precision space-based clock. The project will bring together capabilities from QuantX Labs and the University of Adelaide with specific space-related consultancy support from SITAEL and the University of Melbourne.
This project aims to develop one of the key technologies that is essential for the development of a sovereign timing capability for Australia. It may also offer a replacement for technologies used in other jurisdictions because of its potential for higher performance than the current state-of-the-art.
