(I-HLS) A new collaboration between Q-CTRL and Advanced Navigation will develop a next-generation quantum-enhanced precision navigation and timing (PNT) for both the civilian and defense markets.
Quantum sensing is considered one of the most promising areas in the global research effort to leverage the exotic properties of quantum physics for real-world benefit. It is expected to revolutionize PNT through an ability to detect very weak accelerations while maintaining accuracy over long times. Quantum-enabled PNT can therefore enable highly precise navigation in commercial and military applications where GPS is unavailable.
Q-CTRL, a startup that applies the principles of control engineering to accelerate the development of quantum technology, has partnered with Advanced Navigation, expertizing in AI-based navigational hardware. The two companies will collaborate in developing quantum-enabled sensing.
Q-CTRL has a growing practice in quantum sensing for aerospace and defense. Advanced Navigation builds ultra-precise, AI-based navigational technologies and robotics for sea, air, land and space across commercial and defense domains.
