QuantIC previews new demonstrators at SPIE Security + Defence 2016

QuantIC showed off a couple of new demonstrators to industry at the SPIE Security + Defence 2016 Conference in Edinburgh on 27 and 28 September as a sneak preview to what the Hub will be exhibiting at the 2nd UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase in London on 3 November.

On display were the 3D imaging system using single pixel camera technology and the hidden object tracker. Working in collaboration with Leonardo, the 3D Single Pixel Camera offers real advantages in 3D ranging application due to its exquisite timing resolution. The Hidden Object Tracker from QuantIC’s researchers at Heriot Watt University in collaboration with Thales highlighted the development around a camera system that could image around a corner using localised arrays of SPADs. The Hub’s exhibition stand was busy and saw interest from companies such as BAE systems, Airbus Defence and Space and Raptor Photonics.

SPIE CollageLast week’s SPIE Defence + Security / Remote Sensing conference in Edinburgh was well attended and featured plenary sessions from luminaries in the fields of fiber lasers and quantum technologies, including Professor Sir Peter Knight, who highlighted the importance of quantum enabled technology based on photonics.

QuantIC will be presenting more demonstrators at the 2nd UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase in London on 3rd November. For more information on the event, click on this link.
