Ruggedize your quantum sensors for the field

Deliver more value from your hardware with fully integrated performance management software

End-users expect hassle-free performance in real environments - from the clinic to the battlefield. It’s imperative to deliver sensors resilient against the background clutter, interference, and platform noise that normally saps performance.

Our infrastructure software solutions for quantum sensing expand your system’s performance where it counts - in the field. They are based on the power of Boulder Opal’s validated research tools, integrating autonomy, resilience, and noise rejection directly into your existing hardware and operational software.

Our technology is validated on real hardware subjected to the same conditions faced at sea or in the air. Motion testing gives you the confidence you need to know that Q-CTRL’s infrastructure software will deliver when it counts - in the field.
