Important Innovations Collection: Canada's Quantum Tech to Space

Canada to Launch Quantum Satellite in 2022 Source:  Canadian Space Agency Canada plans to launch in 2022 a new Quantum Satellite that is designed to provide greatly enhanced security to national and commercial communications networks.  The Canadian government believes the new satellite is necessary because in the age of quantum computing, it will be increasingly easy to break through security barriers like passwords, etc. In fact, they think that within the decade current security methods will be totally obsolete.  For a great news blog on this, go to Important Innovations Collection: Canada's Quantum Tech to Space : New Satellite Launch 2022 Source:  Canadian Space Agency Goal:  Protect Communications Networks Canada will launch a new satellite i...

Quantum Security - Counterfeiters Beware

Nanoscale Fingerprints Identify Counterfeiting Counterfeiting is one of the world's biggest scams.  Fakes, forgeries and knock-off imitations cost the global economy half a trillion dollars a year.  Emerging technology out of the UK could put a major dent into that and put phony products in full view. Quantum Security Scientists from Lancaster University in the UK are developing and patenting security solutions technology using quantum devices.  They're creating quantum security at the nanoscale level.  Literally, nanoscale fingerprints standing guard.  Quantum Base is a spin-out company from Lancaster University that is a driving force of the innovation. Ending Counterfeit Goods The new anti-counterfeiting method, developed by Lancaster University scientists uses 2 components.  There's a unique molecular pattern that can be put into a holographic label and picked up by a corresponding smartphone app.  Bottom-line: it alerts if the product is a counterfeit. It ap
