The entry for Lucy in Wikipedia's Selection of Discovery Mission 13 and 14; Finalists says:
The mission will make use of the Deep Space Atomic Clock.81
The Universe Today article says only:
NASA has also offered an additional \$5 to \$30 million in funding if mission planners choose to incorporate a laser communications system, a 3D woven heat shield, a Deep Space atomic clock, and/or ion engines.
and the linked Deep Space Atomic Clock article does not mention Lucy, nor is the mission mentioned in any of the questions below nor their answer.
Question: So I'd like to ask: How will Lucy "make use" of a deep space atomic clock?
Deep Space Atomic Clock Q&A that don't currently mention Lucy:
- Where would one deploy deep space atomic clocks?
- How does an onboard atomic clock help interplanetary navigation?
- Help understanding exactly how an atomic clock facilitates “self-driving spacecraft” when paired with an onboard camera?
- Why does the Deep Space Atomic Clock have such a short mission?
- How high is the first Deep Space Atomic Clock orbiting? Does it receive radiation equivalent to that in deep space?
- How far from earth have atomic clocks (or ultra-stable oscillators) been placed and monitored?
