Quantum sensing for defence and security

Posted on: 04/01/2019

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.
