Quantum Sensing Community of Interest meeting

26th February 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

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. Funded by Future Sensing and Situational Awareness Programme, the project is aligned with the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme’s vision to create a coherent quantum technology community and demonstrate technological advancement towards deployable solutions. In response to this challenge, Dstl is hosting a Quantum Sensing Community of Interest meeting on 26 February 2019 in London. This follows a recent Quantum Sensing PhD calling conference where Dstl committed to fund a number of projects for commencement in 2019. The meeting goals are to:

  • Bring together the navigation and quantum communities with a focus on solutions for reducing reliance on Global Navigation Satellite Systems;
  • Articulate the military user needs and announce Dstl’s intention to fund new industry-academia partnerships to drive quantum based navigational related technologies to higher technology readiness levels;
  • Inform industry and academia of aligned funding opportunities from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S);
  • Discuss future opportunities for quantum sensing and imaging more broadly;
  • Agree on the structure of the community.
Members of industry, academia, government and armed forces that research or commission such systems (our Community of Interest) are highly encouraged to attend. Attendees from industry and academia will have a valuable opportunity to discuss quantum technologies with each other and be afforded access to Dstl scientists and MOD representatives. Similarly, this will be an opportunity for the MOD to express its requirements to a supplier base first-hand. Participates may be required to sign up to an appropriate non-disclosure agreement (details to follow). Spaces will be limited due to venue capacity, therefore it is advised that you register your interest in attending as soon as possible. For further enquiries, p email]]>
