Abstract
We propose to build and test a prototype IMU based on atomic interferometry. This includes the laser source, vacuum system, simplified low-power electronics, and software. Initial testing of noise level, bias drifts, and performance under dynamics will be done on a per-axis basis, transitioning to testing of the full IMU at the end of the project.
