Quantum Computing is a strongly emerging field. With the advances of the hardware a new era of so called NISQ (Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum) devices are available now. Exploring the applications and developing applications of this new technology in terms of Quantum Computing, Quantum Communication and Quantum Methods is the goal of the QT Research Group. Here the group engages in various fields as Quantum Key Distribution (MuQuaNet), Optimal Control Theory (Munich Quantum Valley, Grape4Space), Quantum Algorithms (SCOS, QAthMOS), Education, and support advisory boards inside and outside of DLR regarding Quantum Computer Development.
Quantum Technology@DLR GSOC: Space and satellite missions operation consists of various complex software systems with numerous automated and computer assisted tasks. The German Space Operations Center has a genuine interest to develop and use new processes and technologies. The research group supports the introduction and implementation of quantum technology in space operations with focus on scheduling and planning, communication, satellite control and data analysis. Hereby we collaborate with and are embedded in a rich network including many other groups from DLR, research institutes as LMU, TUM, Uni Bourgogne, UniBW, LRZ and industry partners interested in quantum computing.
GRAPE4Space: Robust Satellite Attitude via Control Theory (with TUM, Uni Bourgogne)
SQOS: Spacecraft Quantum Oncall Scheduling (with LMU, DLR-SC)
QAthMOS: Anomaly detection in telemetry data using QML, Graph theory, Nearest Neighbour Problem
