Quantum Clocks

You can have low SWaP and high-performance time-keeping in the one product.

C-ROC

Compact Rubidium Optical Clock

Microwave atomic clocks are the backbone of existing GNSS networks (such as GPS and Galileo) as well as being at the heart of numerous high-performance terrestrial communications, radar and broadcast applications. However, QuantX, in conjunction with the University of Adelaide, has made a breakthrough in which optical atomic clocks can provide enhanced performance over microwave clock and do it in a much smaller package.

Our optical clock bridges the gap between large laboratory-based frequency standards and lower precision portable standards. This portability combined with cutting edge stability enables a range of new applications from high precision terrestrial navigation on mobile platforms to its deployment on MEO and LEO PNT constellations.

The design of the clock allows a direct trade-off between clock performance and Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) so that it can meet the timing needs of your application

Key applications:

  • Terrestrial navigation and timing on mobile platforms
  • Deep space communication
  • Data centre and telecommunication networks
  • GNSS constellations
