Quantum radar will expose stealth aircraft

Aircraft

New $2.7 million project funded by Department of National Defence will develop technology for quantum radar.

Stealth aircraft in the Canadian arctic will be no match for a new quantum radar system.

Researchers at the University of Waterloo are developing a new technology that promises to help radar operators cut through heavy background noise and isolate objects —including stealth aircraft and missiles— with unparalleled accuracy.

The ride of your life: surviving and thriving in the startup world

The cell phone chip Manku developed to see radio frequency.

The concept for his latest startup is something straight out of a superhero movie. Just like Batman used high-frequency sonar signals from millions of cell phones to visualize the location of villains throughout Gotham City in Dark Knight, entrepreneur Taj Manku is developing new software that could soon allow our cell phones to see in the dark.
