About Us

Atomionics is a Singapore based VC-backed startup building quantum sensors for resource exploration and navigation. We measure gravity, acceleration, and rotation 1000x better than the state of the art. Our sensors can build a complete map of the underground, thus help pinpoint underground structures, like bunkers and tunnels, predict earthquakes, provide precise navigation, and build a universal positioning system that works everywhere – underground, underwater, and even in space. We have deep expertise in bringing complex technologies from a lab environment to the dynamic real world.

We are a focused group in a high-energy environment. The core of what we are building is called cold atom interferometry, where we cool down atoms to microkelvin temperatures by shooting lasers at them. This allows us to precisely measure the forces acting on them. Our team has over 30 years of combined relevant research experience and consists of people at the top of their domains with a diverse set of experience, such as in advanced rocket engines, the first digital cameras, and high resolution microscopes, apart from cold atom physics. And due to the complexity of our work, our employees get to interact with other domains such as electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, and software engineering. Our company likes to treat our work as a “gym for our minds”.

In addition, we are backed by some fantastic investors from the private and public sectors, such as Wavemaker, SGInnovate, Cap Vista, 500 Startups, and other prominent angels.

Congratulations, we’ve received your form!

Here’s what to expect next: Our team will review the information you have provided and reach out to you via email within 1 business day. We will address any questions you have asked and simultaneously schedule a chat to have a more intimate discussion to understand your work.

We have created a short video explaining how our quantum gravimeter works which you can check out here. For a more detailed understanding of our technology, you can take a look at the following papers:

All the gravity data that is collected goes through a cleaning process where various corrections are applied including free-air, tidal, and terrain. After that, there are various analysis options we provide to our partners ranging from contour maps to gravity inversion based on the needs of the project.

We can tweak a variety of parameters of our quantum gravimeter, such as accuracy, sensitivity, and spacing among others, to plan a gravity survey targeted at solving your specific challenges. This means there are no standard prices however, it will definitely be cheaper and faster than traditional ground based systems.
We are open to different terms of engagement and monetary compensation is not the only way to move forward! Contact us and one of our team members will be happy to have a more detailed discussion.

Due to our limited capacity, our deployment schedule is often planned out a year in advance and we engage with partners on a first come, first served basis. We may have the capacity for an additional deployment or two within the next year on rare occasions based on the proximity and the scale of the new project to the planned projects. To find out if that is the case, contact us here.

Most of our data is under NDAs and cannot be shared publicly. But do write to us here and we will see what we can share during the time of writing.
