Description of the contract

The Pathfinder Metrology programme supports the International System of Units (SI) and has the following objectives: * To make available the SI base units at the greatest possible accuracy, and to maintain the integrity of the links between the SI units; * To research novel techniques and technologies that have the potential to make significant improvements to the National Measurement System (NMS); The programme takes a medium to long term view, up to 10 - 15 years ahead, and concentrates on research and development. The long term goal is to devise universal measurement standards based wholly on fundamental constants and quantum processes, thereby avoiding reliance on physical artefacts.
