Published: January 31, 2023

The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF) are preparing for a quantum world and are looking for your knowledge and expertise.

The Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program will be funding up to $3 million per successful proposal to create multidisciplinary research micro-networks (micro-nets) through its Innovation Networks element to build expertise in the field of quantum technology.

IDEaS will fund micro-nets to develop, integrate and demonstrate quantum technologies that can revolutionize current defence and security capabilities in:

  • Quantum sensing and sensors (including for positioning, navigation and timing);
  • Quantum communications; and
  • Quantum computing, simulations and algorithms

Submit your letter of intent (LOI) by 14:00 (EST) Tuesday, March 7, 2023.
