Quantum in space: will it conquer the final frontier?
Hear from the innovators applying quantum tech to the big space challenges, at our latest Quantum Innovators Network event as part of the City of Sydney Visiting Entrepreneur Program.
Join the innovators applying quantum tech to the big space challenges.
Next-generation quantum technologies delivering more powerful computing, communications, and sensing capabilities are set to play a major role in space exploration. This panel discussion will bring together the innovators applying quantum to some of our biggest space challenges – from delivering secure space-to-earth communications to navigation across vast, unknown distances. Where are the opportunities for quantum technology and entrepreneurs? And what are the potential applications for these technologies back here on earth?
Join us on Thursday, 30 Jun 2022 at 5:00 PM for this Quantum Innovators Network event hosted by Sydney Quantum Academy as part of the City of Sydney Visiting Entrepreneur Program. The Quantum Innovators Network is our free event series and community designed to empower and inspire entrepreneurially minded quantum innovators and enthusiasts.
