Demonstrating Quantum Technology in Space Applications

The established space industry (old space) finds it difficult to apply new technologies; it sees change as a risk and its processes for evidencing space suitability have not been designed to speed the process of adoption. RAL Space is looking for ways to speed up the process of getting new technologies ready for space, using new tools and practices, standardisation and fast demonstration missions. The aim is to encourage more technologists to partner with the space sector, get their technologies working in space and show the potential of new applications and services they can provide.
