North America Atomic Clock Market Forecast Report 2020-2027 – Arrival of Optical Arrays of Atomic Clocks Based on Strontium, Ytterbium and Gadolinium Atoms

The “North America Atomic Clock Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Type and Application” report was added to offer.

The North American atomic clock market is expected to grow from US $ 144.80 million in 2019 to US $ 232.85 million by 2027; it is estimated to increase at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2020 to 2027.

The weather station consists of various time sensitive applications which increase the demand for atomic clocks. Since the invention in the middle of the twentieth century, atomic clocks have undergone enormous developments and improvements. Various applications of atomic clocks in metrology and fundamental physics have been made possible by the constant improvement in their accuracy and stability.

In addition, GNSS satellite positioning depends on the propagation that a signal takes to travel from the satellite to the receiver. Therefore, the position error is implied; thus, navigation systems rely on the performance of the clock. In addition, atomic clocks are used in earth stations to synchronize orbit clocks and characterize time systems. In addition, the increasing demand for high precision atomic clocks from the aerospace and military industries is among the other factors that are expected to fuel the growth of the atomic clocks market in North America.

Based on type, rubidium atomic clock and CSAC segment dominated the atomic clock market in North America in 2019. Rubidium atomic clock or rubidium standard is an atomic clock with frequency and a high precision time standard. These are the most compact and simple atomic clocks, which use a rubidium gas glass cell.

The operation of an atomic clock depends on an electric oscillator regulated by the natural vibrational frequencies of an atomic system. Thus, in the rubidium atomic clock, the output frequency is controlled by a specified hyperfine transition of electrons in the rubidium-87 atoms.

Additionally, cesium atomic clocks – which feature primary frequency standards – are considered to be more accurate than commercial rubidium clocks. However, even more stable rubidium fountains than cesium fountain clocks are currently in development. In addition, the next generation Atomic Smart Clocks (CSAC) have the potential to demonstrate key enablers with better prices for the atomic clock market. CSACs appear to be well suited to autonomous vehicles and drones.

The Microsemi SA.45s CSAC is the first commercially available atomic clock chip scale, offering stability and precision in atomic clock technology. On January 9, 2020, Frequency Electronics, Inc. announced that its Next Generation Rubidium Atomic Clock has completed a Critical Design Review (CDR) for potential use in the United States by prime contractor Lockheed Martin Space.
