We discuss the design of quantum hybrid inertial sensor that combines an optomechanical inertial sensor with the retro-reector of a cold atom interferometer. This sensor fusion approach provides absolute and high accuracy measurements with cold atom interferometers, while utilizing the optomechanical inertial sensor at frequencies above the repetition rate of the atom interferometer. This improves the overall measurement bandwidth as well as the robustness and field deployment capabilities of these systems. We evaluate which parameters yield an optimal acceleration sensitivity, from which we anticipate a noise oor at nano-g levels from DC to 1 kHz.
