Quantum Technologies in Space

In an increasingly connected and digitalised society the reliance of satellites, and more broadly in space, are crucial for the well-functioning of our daily lives. The limitations and the challenges which the current generation of technologies face have called authorities to invest more in promising emerging technologies, such as quantum technologies (QT). In very recent years, the European Commission (EC) and other European countries have announced large investments towards the commercialization of QT to address/mitigate some of the biggest challenges facing today’s digital era – e.g. secure communication and computing power. For more than two decades the QT community has worked on the development of QTs, which promise landmark breakthroughs towards commercialization in various areas. In recent years, the substantive increase in investment from national initiatives and the EU QT Flagship are significant tokens of the interest that QTs are raising in the broadest research & development community, policy makers, and industries
