The Turkish Space Agency will support the work of TÜBİTAK National Metrology Institute (Ulusal Metroloji Enstitü/ UME). The agency will carry out work to make the classic RB atomic clock designed by TÜBİTAK UME suitable for use in space. Atomic clocks are used to prevent time deviation in areas where gravity is low.
As a useful load to the small-sized CUBESAT satellite equipped with nanotechnology, it was decided that TÜBİTAK UME would make a miniature RB atomic clock.
In the following process, a protocol will be signed between TÜBİTAK UME and the Turkish Space Agency, which includes the use of the institute's capabilities for the agency.
