Current methods of data encryption face increasing threat from hackers, however, quantum physics could eradicate vulnerability. Our research is developing novel quantum encryption solutions to provide much greater protection for sensitive digital information in transit. Through design of satellite constellations that can carry these technologies to space, we aim to efficiently connect the globe so that our future is protected from cybercrime.
