About Quantum Sensing

Quantum computing is receiving quite a bit of attention – and rightfully so. It’s positioned to dramatically influence our arsenal of computing resources. These advances have been the drivers of every major development we’ve recently seen in society – from the information economy to autonomous vehicles and advances in healthcare.

However, less discussed is quantum sensing, which is set to unlock new possibilities in measurement capability and data streams both on planet and off. The technology overcomes imperfections, environmental clutter, and platform noise in order to realise the true potential of hardware.

Data is the heart of the modern economy.
