  • The DLR Institute for Quantum Technologies in Ulm develops such technologies and applies them together with partners from industry.
  • In this way, DLR supports the development of know-how in a key technology that is important for Germany as a business and science location.
  • Quantum technologies, for example, enable long-term secure communication and very precise navigation via satellite.
  • The DLR Institute was officially inaugurated at a digital event on May 27, 2021.

ULM, Germany (DLR PR) — Whether secure communication or reliable navigation by satellite – many space applications rely on high-precision instruments. Technologies based on quantum mechanical effects enable previously unattainable levels of accuracy and safety. The Institute for Quantum Technologies of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) develops such technologies and brings them to prototype maturity with industry. The institute in Ulm thus bridges the gap between basic research and application. The DLR Institute was officially inaugurated at a digital event on May 27, 2021.
