M Squared will be participating in the Quantum Technologies Showcase 2019, which is now in its fifth year. The event, being held at the QEII Centre in London on Friday 5 November, will continue to recognise and demonstrate the breadth of current investments and activities undertaken as part of the National Programme and the growing commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK.
M Squared's quantum team will be showcasing its quantum gravimeter and more recent advancements including greatly improved sensitivity and robustness. This follows on from the first roll-out of the system at the showcase in 2017. The applications of a quantum gravimeter, such as detecting underground infrastructure or mineral deposits, require a portable instrument that can easily be operated in the field. Some implementations, such as when it forms part of a quantum inertial navigation unit, also require the gravimeter to work while it is in motion. To this end, we operated the gravimeter on a moving platform, and the results from this critical milestone will be presented at the showcase along with a live demonstration of the hardware used in the test.
About the UK National Quantum Technologies Programmme
The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is a UK Government Investment over £600m over ten years, aimed at accelerating the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace, boosting British business and making a real difference to our everyday lives. The vision is to create a coherent quantum technology community that gives the UK a world-leading position in the emerging multi-billion-pound new quantum technology markets and to substantially enhance the value of some of the biggest UK-based industries. The Programme supports investments in research, innovation, skills and technology demonstration to help UK industry to commercialise these new technologies.
About the organisers
The 2019 Showcase is organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in collaboration with the National Network of Quantum Technology Hubs and other National Programme Partners.
