Quantum Laboratory at mhow (MP): Basics Explained

The Army, with support from the National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS), has recently established the Quantum Lab at Military College of Telecommunication Engineering, Mhow (MP) MCTE to spearhead research and training in this key developing field. Research undertaken by the Indian Army in the field of Quantum Technology will help leapfrog into next-generation communication and transform the current system of cryptography in the Indian Armed Forces to Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC).

Key thrust areas are Quantum Key Distribution, Quantum Communication, Quantum Computing, and Post Quantum Cryptography. Indian Army has also established an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Centre at the same institution with over 140 deployments in forwarding areas and active support of industry and academia. Training on cyber warfare is being imparted through a state of art cyber range, and cyber security labs. Ideation for Army’s involvement in Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations was done in a seminar on Electromagnetic Spectrum and National Security organized in October last year. Since then, an impetus has been given to the Indian Army’s Technology Institutions for investing in AI, Quantum, and Cyber.

What Is Quantum Mechanics

Quantum mechanics is the branch of physics relating to the very small. In classical mechanics, objects exist in a specific place at a specific time. However, in quantum mechanics, objects instead exist in a haze of probability; they have a certain chance of being at point A, another chance of being at point B, and so on

Artificial intelligence (AI)

An area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. It aims to improve machine behavior in tackling complex tasks. Some of the activities computers with artificial intelligence are designed for include:
