Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
This project explores the emerging technologies collectively known as quantum sensors and identifies opportunities where these technologies could be deployed on automated or remote-controlled vehicles, whether airborne, aquatic, or land based. Three areas of focus for the effort include:
The need for mobile sensors in these and related areas adds constraints to the quantum sensing development that may both enrich the problem as well as guide solutions towards one set of technologies over another.
Classification of sensor technologies with size and weight requirements immediately map to constraints on drone technologies that may be capable as platforms for the sensors. Nevertheless, innovations in quantum infrastructure that are on the horizon, or immerging drone technology, may rapidly change these relationships, giving rise to new possibilities.
