The Pentagon is looking for a quantum space sensor | C4ISR NET

Despite GPS technology being utilized in numerous ways on earth, aircraft that operate in space need something more powerful. The Department of Defense has announced that they are looking for something a little more powerful, namely a quantum space sensor, to do the job. Organized by the Defense Innovation Unit, they are looking for a compact, high-performance sensor that can use quantum technology in order to measure in space with greater accuracy. The program manager has commented that the “primary objective of this effort is to mature the technology readiness of commercial sensors for reliable operations.”
