Quantum Atomic Gyroscopes revolutionize satellite attitude control to enhance global data communications
Quantum attitude sensors provide reliable and precise measurement of attitude in a compact and lightweight package, ensuring long-term stability and orientation of satellites in space. The technological approach also promises enhanced navigation of vehicles on ground, sea and in the air.
The QYRO project, a collaborative initiative between Q.ANT, Bosch, TRUMPF, Ferdinand Braun Institute and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), is set to transform satellite attitude control using cutting-edge quantum sensors. With the goal of launching the first quantum technology-equipped satellite by 2027, the project aims to enhance Internet connectivity, particularly in remote regions. Supported by a research budget of approximately 28 million euros, provided by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), this groundbreaking collaboration holds great promise for the future of space technology.
