Quantum sensing for defence and security
Applications are invited for community of interest meeting, 26 February, London, focusing on reducing reliance on global navigation satellite systems.
Quantum Sensing is a Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) project that develops and demonstrates quantum sensing technology for UK Defence and Security applications in partnership with industry and academia.
Dstl is hosting a Quantum Sensing community of interest meeting on 26 February in London.¬† The goals of the meeting are:
- to bring together the navigation and quantum communities with a focus on solutions for reducing reliance on global navigation satellite systems
- to articulate the military user needs and announce Dstl‚Äôs intention to fund new industry-academia partnerships to drive quantum based navigational related technologies to higher technology readiness levels
- to inform industry and academia of aligned funding opportunities from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S)
- to discuss future opportunities for quantum sensing and imaging more broadly
- to agree on the structure of the community
Members of industry, academia, government and armed forces that research or commission such systems are highly encouraged to attend. ¬†Attendees from industry and academia will have a valuable opportunity to discuss quantum technologies with each other and will be able to network with Dstl scientists and MOD representatives. ¬†It will also be an opportunity for the MOD to express its requirements to a supplier base first-hand. ¬†Participants may be required to sign up to an appropriate non-disclosure agreement.
To register your interest in attending, visit the¬†events page.¬† Spaces will be limited and it is advised that you register your interest in attending as soon as possible.
