SpeQtral and Qosmosys Unite to Pioneer Lunar Quantum Communications

Singapore, 2 April 2024 – SpeQtral, an expert in space-based quantum communications, and Qosmosys, a leader in space exploration, proudly announce the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU). This collaboration aims to develop a Moon-based Entanglement Distribution System (MEDS) for ultra long-distance quantum communications, leveraging Qosmosys’ ZeusX and SpeQtral’s expertise to unlock the Moon’s potential for cybersecurity applications and beyond.

The MEDS holds the promise of facilitating various applications, including quantum communications from the Moon and quantum-enhanced long baseline interferometry for astronomy and deep space observations. Quantum-enhanced long baseline interferometry has the potential to significantly increase the achievable resolution and sensitivity for observing distant celestial objects, advancing our understanding of deep space phenomena.

The partnership encompasses key initiatives such as conducting design feasibility studies, setting up the industry consortium and business structure to execute the programme, and pursuing joint business development opportunities for MEDS operations.

Lum Chune Yang, CEO and Co-founder of SpeQtral, emphasised the transformative nature of the partnership, remarking, “This collaboration marks a significant and challenging milestone in merging space exploration and quantum technology. With Qosmosys, we’re excited to tackle the challenge of redefining the boundaries of space exploration and cybersecurity.”
