The UK Quantum Technology Hub required high-precision quantum clocks for their Sensors and Timing project. The project aimed to develop advanced radar systems capable of detecting small, slow-moving objects such as drones and migrating birds. Quantum technology promises improved results, but its success depends on high precision. Rohde & Schwarz played a crucial role by providing test and measurement expertise.
The team utilized the R&S® FSWP phase noise analyzer and VCO tester to evaluate the performance of high-precision oscillators, ensuring the accuracy of the quantum clocks through thorough testing. Explore this case study to examine the significance of precision instruments in developing and validating cutting-edge quantum technologies, such as radar systems.
