The Department of Science and Technology (DST) has signed a five-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Navy to develop secure maritime communications using Quantum Technology on 12th April 2023.
The Raman Research Institute under the Ministry of Science & Technology Quantum Information and Computing (QuIC) lab will lead the research efforts towards developing quantum key distribution techniques. The QuIC lab is India’s first laboratory to propose and implement a wide range of applications using single and entangled photons for secure communications in strategic areas like banking, defence, and cyber security. The collaboration will help foster cutting-edge research towards the identification of potential maritime use-cases for the Indian Navy.
