SUPPLY OF QUANTUM STABILISATION PLATFORM FOR THE MOTION CONTROL OF QUANTUM GRAVIMETER SYSTEMS - UNIVERSITY OF BIRMINGHAM

The University of Birmingham invites tenders for supply of a quantum stabilisation platform for the motion control of quantum gravimeter systems. The stabilisation platform workstation will form part of a physical demonstrator, i.e. facilities created as part of the Quantum Technologies Hub - the EPSRC funded project. This will be used to ensure vertical alignment of an atom interferometer quantum sensor during mobile operation & provide vibration isolation so that the sensor doesn't exceed its dynamic range. The equipment is an essential integral part of the sensor suite to be used in the real-world map-matching activity. The requested equipment will be integrated into the field-capable gravity gradiometer. Overall budget for this item is up to £300,000.00 excluding VAT, including delivery to the University of Birmingham, training and manuals and warranties over the length of the Quantum Technologies Hub grant i.e. 30th November 2024.
