Raman Analysis Institute (RRI) has joined arms with the Indian Navy to develop safe maritime communications utilizing quantum applied sciences.
The Bengaluru-based institute inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Weapons and Electronics Methods Engineering Institution (WESEE), the R&D institution of the Indian Navy, final week.
RRI stated that the MoU is 5 years, and underneath this settlement, RRI’s Quantum Info and Computing (QuIC) lab will lead the analysis efforts in the direction of growing quantum key distribution methods that the Indian Navy may leverage within the nation’s efforts in the direction of securing free house communications.

“I am absolutely delighted that the Indian Science and Technology ecosystem has been opening borders in recent years that enable talented and world-class researchers in the academic research institutions to contribute to the growth of Science and Technology capabilities in strategic areas of national importance. The porosity of the perceived boundary between fundamental and applied sciences as well as Science and Technology, will bode well in the coming decades. RRI feels proud to partner with WESEE in cutting edge Science and Technology,” stated Professor Tarun Souradeep, director, RRI.
Professor Urbasi Sinha, Group Head, QuIC lab, stated, “This is a great opportunity for us to use indigenously developed science and technology knowledge to serve our nation. We are excited about the collaboration and believe that with our expertise in the domain of secure quantum communications, we will be able to help foster cutting-edge research towards identification of potential maritime use-cases for the Indian Navy.”
This lab has been main the nation’s analysis within the area of safe quantum communication. A few of its main achievements embrace the event of an end-to-end simulation toolkit named “qkdSim”, making certain security in communication platforms; establishing safe communication, each between two buildings and, extra not too long ago, between a stationary supply and a cell receiver.
