Exploration Architecture with Quantum Inertial Gravimetry and In Situ ChipSat Sensors

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

This will study an exploration architecture combining remote survey with in situ sampling, with example missions to Europa and a Near Earth Object. In particular for this study, we will examine cold-stom gravimetry and ChipSat landers as enabling technologies to perform combined missions at Europa and asteroid targets. We will also investigate ChipSat landers as a technology for in situ sensing. These efforts will both mature cold-atom inertial sensing for use on small space platforms and mature ChipSats as a plentary landing platform.
