High-performance gravimeters and gravity gradiometers are well-suited for geophysical surveying, including oil and mineral exploration, underground fluid monitoring, and mapping terrain. Such sensors may also be useful for geodetic studies of Earth’s gravitational potential, identifying special nuclear materials, treaty verification, and void detection. AOSense has built and demonstrated cold atom sensors for measuring gravity and gravity gradients, including a compact gravimeter that we shipped to an aerospace customer.
