Vector Atomic is commercializing quantum technology for applications including GPS-free navigation, telecommunications, and computing. We are focused on delivering near-term products that take advantage of the exquisite properties of quantum systems. These devices are designed with the cost, form, fit, and function for the real world. Our consulting and engineering services help customers understand and employ tools from the physical sciences and the emerging quantum landscape.
Quantum hardware for positioning, navigation & timing (PNT)
Hit the ground running in your R&D pursuits
GPS is enabled by atomic clocks and underpins our modern infrastructure. Transportation, telecommunications, and financial sectors require GPS to provide accurate location services and synchronization of distributed communication networks. Vector Atomic is developing next-generation atomic clocks to reduce reliance on GPS and to enable new capabilities in positioning, communications, and coherent radar/lidar.
Inertial sensors provide positioning when GPS is unavailable – the more accurate sensors, the more reliable position fix. Atomic inertial sensors can provide GPS-level positioning for hours compared to tens of minutes for conventional technologies. Vector Atomic is developing highly integrated, compact atomic devices for navigation and geophysical exploration.
Our staff has broad experience transforming abstract research into practical devices and products. We are experts in lasers and optics, electronics, vacuum systems, mechanical design, and systems engineering. Vector Atomic Scientific & Technical (VAST) services support the full technology lifecycle. Consulting services include technology assessment, feasibility studies, market analysis, and proposal development. Engineering services include rapid prototyping, sensor design, and independent test and evaluation.
