AbstractAOSense proposes an atom interferometer based inertial measurement unit that is capable of meeting the navigational requirements of surface ships and submarines. Real-world applications require extensive optimization of various interferometer design choices in order to deal with platform dynamics. Our sensor design will also take into account practical implementation such as minimal maintenance, reduced cost, and simplified manufacturing. Our custom parts that have become standard in AOSense sensors will be used to speed demonstration and refinement. These include control electronics, a Doppler cooled atom source, laser hardware and numerous opto-mechanical parts.
