Quantum Radar - Principles and Perspectives

Abstract:

This paper provides an introduction to the quantum radars that can cause a revolution in the modern warfare in the near future. The goal of the paper is to present basic principles of quantum radars without deep knowledge of quantum mechanics, where its properties and phenomena important for the quantum radar will be outlined. After the physics introduction, the three basic designs of how the quantum radar could work will be presented as well as their advantages. In more details, the main benefits of quantum radars including higher quantum radar cross section and more difficult jamming and localization will be discussed. Next, the state-of-the-art research, the important technologies for quantum radar and its other applications will be commented. Finally, the time scale of the first prototypes and the role of the quantum electronic warfare will be discussed.

Michal Křelina, Ph.D., born in 1987. He graduated in bachelor, master and Ph.D. studies in the field of Experimental Nuclear Physics at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering in Prague (FJFI CTU) in 2007-2016. Furthermore, in the years 2011-2014 he graduated from the Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies of the Czech Technical University in Prague, in pedagogy specialization. Currently, he acts as a postdoctoral researcher at the Tecnica Università Federico Santa Maria in Valparaiso, Chile and partly at the FJFI CTU in Prague, where he focuses to the theoretical nuclear physics of high energies. In addition, he deals with  theoretical research in nuclear physics, electronic combat, quantum technologies and their military applications.
