In this proceeding we present ongoing projects concerning high resolution measurements developed for future space missions based on ultracold atoms at the Institut für Quantenoptik (IQ) of the Leibniz-Universität Hannover, This work involves the realization of a Bose Einstein condensate in microgravitational environment and an inertial atomic quantum sensor.
