TechPort to Host MQA Fireside Chat

Tune in Friday, December 11, for the Maryland Quantum Alliance’s fireside chat hosted by TechPort. The MQA “Quantum Technologies for Naval Aviation” program will be held from 2 to 3 pm.

Dr. Dave Clader, group supervisor for the Experimental and Computational Physics Group at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, will facilitate the chat with Paul W. Reimel and Dr. Mary Frances Locke, leads for quantum technologies and quantum sensors, respectively, at Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Patuxent River.

Tech Port invites those interested to register for the MQA discussion of how quantum sensing can be applied to address the Navy’s particular missions and operating environments.

Quantum technologies promises to unlock novel forms of computing and communicating, as well as unprecedented sensitivity and precision in measurements, especially of electromagnetic fields, acceleration, gravity, and time. There are a wide range of potential military applications of quantum technologies, including improving enemy detection, enabling GPS-denied navigation, optimizing, and securing the supply-chain, etc.
