TriVector selected to perform radiation tests for quantum satellite components

TriVector has been chosen to support Singapore's Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) in the testing of CQT's nanosatellite components. The CQT will be launching the Small Photon-Entangling Quantum System (SPEQS) as a payload on a nanosatellite in 2014.

According to CQT, "Scientifically, the goal of SPEQS is to show that it is possible to create in orbit pairs of entangled photons, an experiment never done before. SPEQS will also be a test bed for technology for future quantum communication networks."

When CQT's team needed to characterize the projected performance of the SPEQS components in the low earth orbit radiation environment, their solution provider of choice was TriVector. TriVector's support is completely ITAR compliant, and is a key to the future success of CQT's innovative quantum communications experiment.
