  • Aegiq expects to work with Honeywell’s high-altitude lidar atmospheric sensing (HALAS)
  • New toolkit simulates the performance of free-space optical and quantum communication networks

In order to improve the deployment of space payloads and associated ground assets, Aegiq and Honeywell have signed a contract .The aim of signing this contract for Honeywell is to combine its atmospheric sensing technology and Aegiq’s emulation toolkit, which assures the link performance of the optical communication technologies used by small satellites.

This toolkit simulates the performance of free-space optical and quantum communication networks, specifically quantum key distribution (QKD), enabling insight into network performance metrics.

The company expects to work with Honeywell’s high-altitude lidar atmospheric sensing (HALAS) remotely operated, ground-based weather information system.

Aegiq co-founder and CEO Maksym Sich said, “Aegiq has a pedigree in making compact but powerful integrated photonics quantum hardware. We’re working on a whole host of chip technology that expands us into the network and computing space. Our goal is to enable businesses and customers to use quantum technology. As well as Atlas, we’re making announcements later this year around building that bridge. It’s about de-risking the technology on multiple stages, ensuring that you know your design is best and that you’ve definitely done the cost-benefit analysis for your payload design.”

“What we’re doing now with Honeywell and HALAS is giving the possibility of real-time assurance for any optical comms. They have a very neat technology, which is the high-altitude weather lidar. Atlas allows us to add real-time assurance there’s no eavesdropping, completely separately from your quantum communications. You can build your predictions on the exact performance for that particular geographical location.”

The company targets customers for Atlas as any end users for satellite communication capability.

“These could range from government agencies who require secure communications all the way through to commercial companies and financial institutions, like banks, that are trying to get to the bottom line of what it means to them to have quantum key distribution with that extra level of assurance that comes from being able to pinpoint potential risks,” he concluded.

Aegiq is a quantum computing and networking company. Its mission is to deliver customer value using quantum & integrated photonic technology. Using hybrid integrated photonics, the company has created a platform for scalable and practical quantum applications ranging from photonic quantum computing to quantum network interconnects and quantum cryptographic communications directly compatible with existing infrastructure.
