Treasury has committed £94 million to the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme for the second phase (2019-2024).
Quantum sensors have the potential to provide better sensitivity and reduced survey times, lowering survey costs and enabling a more prolific use of gravity surveys.
Quantum clocks will provide crucial resilience in a world overly reliant on GNSS networks, which faces multiple threats from malicious attacks like jamming, spoofing or state aggression, to rare but real perils like solar flares and space weather.
Received in the second phase of the UK Quantum Technology Hub Sensors and Timing to develop real-world applications by harnessing the power of quantum physics. These will have significant impact in sectors important to the UK.
Quantum sensors will contribute over £4bn per year to the UK economy.
