The AOSense staff has broad capabilities for developing and fielding advanced sensors for precision navigation and timing. Lab-based experiments by AOSense physicists have demonstrated unprecedented precision and accuracy for measurements of rotation, acceleration, time and frequency, and gravity and gravity gradients. Our navigation engineers designed GPS and Galileo signals and developed the navigation algorithms for the B-2 Stealth Bomber, tactical missiles, and SSBN nuclear-powered submarines.

Our staff has demonstrated expertise in all aspects of project execution including theory and analysis, conceptual design, detailed 3D CAD, optomechanical and vacuum design, electronics design, control and analysis software development, packaging, laser design and assembly, integration and testing of control, laser, and sensor head hardware. AOSense has extensive experience developing custom atom trapping and vacuum hardware to meet the challenging size, weight, and power requirements of our customers.

Our 20,000 ft2 facility, located in Sunnyvale, CA is equipped with an 1,800 ft2 cleanroom well-suited for assembling, integrating, and testing optical and vacuum hardware. We have over 3,000 ft2 of warehouse space used for navigation test equipment including Stacis vibration isolation tables, a hexapod for simulating dynamic platforms, a 50 g shaker table, a precision rotation table, and thermal test chambers. We also have dedicated workshops for electrical assembly and test, vacuum assembly and test, and machining.
