QTX-8 Workshop on Quantum Technologies on Small Satellites

The eighth edition of the QTX Workshop on Quantum Technologies on Small Satellites will take place on August, 5th and 6th 2024 in Munich, Germany.

The workshop is co-hosted by the QTX research forum led by Alexander Ling of the National University of Singapore and Markus Krutzik of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik, with local support from Tobias Vogl of the Technical University of Munich. The forum met previously in Singapore (2018 & 2022), Germany (2018), UK (2019), Online (2020 & 2021), and the United Arab Emirates (2023). The workshop is also co-hosted by The International Network in Space Quantum Technologies.

The two-day event will focus on (small) satellite technologies and quantum experiments in space - including both space-based and ground architectures, from component through to mission design, including updates from ongoing missions.

This year we will meet at the Stammgelände Nord of the Technical University of Munich (Theresienstr. 90, 80333 München), directly in the city center of Munich. Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the DLR airport in Oberpfaffenhofen with their optical ground station and their laser links with aircraft and satellites on August, 7th 2024.
