Australia Prioritises Quantum Technology for Defence

The Australian government intensified its efforts to accelerate the development of quantum technologies for defence application, highlighting these technologies as a key to improve the capabilities of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

In a speech to the American Chamber of Commerce in Adelaide on 17 May, Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles underlined the need to enhance advanced defence technologies such as ‘quantum computing’ with the help of allies including the US and the UK.

Marles said Australia will collaborate with the US and the UK under the AUKUS partnership to translate “advancements in technology [including in quantum technologies] into practical, asymmetric capabilities that can be distributed and deployed quickly” to deter future conflicts.

In early May, the Australian Department of Industry, Science and Resources released the National Quantum Strategy to guide national efforts towards developing quantum technologies for building advanced capabilities in crucial sectors including defence.
