Joint workshop: National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO), Centre for EO Instrumentation (CEOI) and the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology.
26th April 2019 – 10:30am – 17:00pm
Edgbaston Park Hotel
53 Edgbaston Park Road, Birmingham, B15 2RS, UK
This workshop focuses on the potential offered by new Quantum Technologies for the next generation of gravity sensors, the technologies that will enable these missions and the benefits which can result for science, society and the economy. It will discuss how disruptive Quantum Technologies and new actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape in gravity measurements, and the new opportunities which will result for the public and private sectors.
The objectives of the workshop are:
- To increase the level of knowledge and understanding of the potential of Quantum Technologies for future EO gravity missions
- To develop a UK network in the science, technologies and application of QT for EO
- To inform/prepare UK-centric teams for future international missions through ESA and other potential business opportunities
- An Introduction to the Science, Technology and Applications of Quantum Technologies to Future Gravity Measurement Missions (Speaker – Bruno Leone, ESA/ESTEC)
- Session 1 – Future EO Science enabled by Quantum Technologies: Satellite gravimetry in Oceanography, Hydrology, the Cryosphere, and the solid Earth sciences
- Session 2 – Quantum Technologies for Future Gravity Missions: Including Cold Atom Technologies; Lasers and Their Control Systems
- Session 3 – Future EO data applications and services enabled by a Quantum Technology Gravity Mission: Meteorology; Oil and gas; Defence and Security; etc…
- Discussion on future steps
Full details on the workshop will be available from mid-March
