Implementing Quantum Technologies in Space

Date: 
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 to Wednesday, February 21, 2018
Place: 
Erlangen (Germany)


Quantum technologies enable completely new possibilities in fields ranging from sensing to metrology and secure communication. Major efforts world wide aim for implementing quantum technologies for applications. These endeavors are driven by massive public and private investments. Of particular interest are quantum technologies in space where technology traditionally is at the forefront of research and development.
Both large missions and small missions in space are being investigated and put forward. The workshop will provide for a platform to discuss the interplay between interesting experimental proposals and realistic implementation hurdles. The effective 2 day workshop should also kick-start concrete contacts between industry, applied research institutes and more fundamental groups in academia. The aim is to establish an ecosystem that enables industry and academia to develop and implement quantum technology in space.
