Canadian Government Funds Zero Point Cryogenics’ Quantum Sensing Technology Project

Zero Point Cryogenics (ZPC) has recently partnered with the University of Waterloo and the Government of Canada, as part of the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program. This collaboration is one of only six projects selected for the program, marking a significant milestone in Canadian quantum technology research, with a focus on defense and security applications.

The IDEaS program was initiated by the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF) to enhance the application of advanced quantum technologies for national defense and security. The goal is to transition cutting-edge research and development from academia and industry towards addressing specific needs in defense and security, recognizing the rapid growth in this sector.

As part of this partnership, ZPC is collaborating on the University of Waterloo’s ambitious project, ‘Microwave Quantum Radar.’ This project, in partnership with Qubic Technologies and Carleton University, has received a substantial contribution agreement worth $3 million. The project is part of a series of research micro-nets focusing on quantum sensing and sensors, quantum communications, quantum computing simulations, and algorithms, supported by the IDEaS program.

Christopher Cassin, CEO of Zero Point Cryogenics expressed his excitement about this collaboration stating that it aligns perfectly with their mission to provide cutting-edge quantum solutions. He said that working alongside some of the brightest minds in industry and academia promises to push boundaries of what is possible with quantum technology while achieving innovative research in science and technology challenges.
