Michael Reimer, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Waterloo, aligns a quantum light source at the university’s Institute for Quantum Computing. Work performed at the institute could lead to quantum radar capable of seeing through high-energy interference as well as detecting stealth aircraft.

The Canadian Department of National Defence is funding researchers at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, C$2.7 million to develop a new type of radar that can operate effectively in harsh Arctic conditions using quantum light. The new technology also would be able to unmask stealth aircraft, according to university scientists.

Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) -Toronto, an agency of the Canadian Department of National Defence, has selected the Christie Matrix StIM projection system as part of a major technology upgrade to train threat reaction by aircrews of the CC130 J-model transport aircraft and other military aircraft. Stationed in Canada's new 17,000 square meter Air Mobility Training Centre in Trenton, Ontario, the two projectors are installed in the Department's Hercules Observer Trainer (HOT) simulator.
