CARIOQA-PMP will be present at the International Union of Geodesy and Geophisics (IUGG) General Assembly next 11-20 July in Berlin.

IUGG is the international organisation dedicated to advancing, promoting, and communicating knowledge of the Earth system, its space environment, and the dynamical processes causing change.

Two presentations of the CARIOQA-PMP project will be held on 16 and 17 July by partner DLR.

Manuel Shilling from DLR will hold a poster session on “Scientific assessment of the CARIOQA-PMP quantum accelerometer pathfinder” on Sunday 16 July from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. This presentation includes the definition of the quantum pathfinder mission concept, the development of tools to simulate the quantum accelerometer and to estimate its performance, and to evaluate current end-user requirements, including the development of mission designs addressing these needs.

“Developing quantum sensors for earth observation” is the second presentation of the CARIOQA-PMP project on Monday 17 July from 10:30 am to 11:00 am. During this talk, Christian Schubert from DLR will describe the role of quantum sensors for earth observation and how CARIOQA-PMP will develop an engineering model for an accelerometer based on atom interferometry adapted for the accommodation on a satellite.

The 28th IUGG General Assembly “is a special opportunity for participants from around the world to come together and discuss the full range of geodetic and geophysical themes, and further enhance the important interdisciplinary collaboration for a better understanding of our Earth System”, according to Harald Schuh, Chair of the Organising Committee.
