Quantum technologies could revolutionize sensors, computation, and communication. These technologies build on the study of the smallest particles of energy and matter to collect, generate, and process information in ways existing technologies can’t.
For example, quantum sensors may be able to locate stealth targets or determine an object’s location and speed without GPS. Quantum computers may dramatically accelerate computing for some applications, such as decrypting information. Quantum communications may also allow completely secure information sharing.
These technologies may need many years of development to reach their full potential.
