Adelaide Atomic Clock Group Wins Two Awards

The Adelaide University Atomic Clock Team has been presented with two measurement awards by the National Measurement Institute (NMI).

The Atomic Clock Team took out top spot in the NMI Measurement Impact award for measurement-related achievements demonstrating real-world impact, and top spot also in the People’s Choice award.

The team was among seven finalists who showcased their work during the awards ceremony, held during National Science Week, at which the audience voted for their favourite for the People’s Choice award.

The team — which comprises 10 core early-career researchers and engineers, who have been working to develop alternative secure, independent precise sources of time for Australian Defence — was awarded the NMI Measurement Impact Award for its world-first portable, autonomous atomic clocks.

The technologies the team has developed hold the promise of providing assured timing signals in GPS-denied environments and of out-performing GPS-derived timing by many orders of magnitude.
