Q-CTRL has teamed up with Fleet Space Technologies to develop quantum sensing and navigation technologies for space exploration. The two Australian startups have paired off as a result of their involvement in the Seven Sisters space industry consortium, which was founded by Fleet. The consortium comprises Australian firms and academic institutions focused on developing advanced exploration technologies for Earth, the Moon, and Mars.

They’re designed to find accessible water and other resources in support of NASA’s Artemis program to land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024, and create a sustainable human presence for later crewed Martian exploration. South Australia’s Premier Steven Marshall has thrown his support behind the initiative. “This groundbreaking application of autonomous quantum sensors in space exploration will be invaluable in leveraging extraterrestrial resources to establish permanent human bases on the Moon, Mars and beyond,” he said. “It demonstrates Australia’s growing global leadership in both the quantum and space industries, establishing a solid foundation for future economic growth.” Q-CTRL, a… Read full this story
