Chinese Quantum Radar: Reports in leading scientific and security journals reveal the level of research and funding going into quantum technology for military applications. Beijing and Washington have been in the middle of a quantum arms race over the past few years, drawing parallels to the Cold War.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), a joint US-Canadian command, aims to leverage quantum radars for its Arctic stations. The onus of this project is on Professor Jonathon Baugh from the University of Waterloo in Canada. In 2018, he was working on a system, which could potentially bypass conventional radar systems by appearing benign whilst carrying out its own detection. However, the Canadian researcher highlighted that there were various engineering challenges to this project. Read more
