Bringing quantum sensing platform and production to market

The launch of the end -to-end platform has been announced by the Ram Group which consists of quantum sensor technology, R&D labs and global production facilities bringing quantum sensing from a dream of the future to the present reality. Following eight years of development and perfecting their quantum sensing technology, the group is opening their post-silicon era solution to any enterprise aiming to bring advanced diagnostics capabilities to the healthcare industry or any IoT innovation across sectors. 

Silicon based sensors can currently tell us ‘what’ with regards to physical phenomenon, Quantum sensors are the sensors of ‘why’ and can analyse exponentially deeper analytics. Ram’s sensing platform utilises GaN (Gallium Nitride) in addition to a set of proprietary materials that create a sensor over one million times more sensitive in signal-to-noise ratio than anything currently in the market, enabling use cases ranging from telehealth for minimally invasive diagnostics and novel wearable devices, to a new range of physical phenomenon sensing IoT devices with powerful data assets.

For example, their Home Health sensors include a Single Point Monitoring sensor that tracks continuous blood pressure, EKG with a novel signal, atrial and ventricular pressures, heart rate variability, and temperature without using electrodes and also includes a Smart Urinalysis application that can analyse nutrition, metabolics and allergies, for example. The introduction of the quantum hardware will enable more robust machine learning and artificial intelligence by providing a range and depth of data previously inaccessible.  

The Ram Group’s sensors can be produced at one tenth the cost of silicon-based chips allowing global development at scale, with the ability to not only detect the smallest quantum particles but also analyse multiple aspects about these particles interactions, providing one sensor that can do the work of several and allowing detection at much lower densities/frequencies. Given the range of use cases and capabilities, the Ram Group will be opening their worldwide research labs and production facilities to allow manufacturers the ability to have a full solution for the creation, development and production of new quantum sensing devices and wearables.

Dr. Jody Ranck, EVP Global Strategy, Ram Group said: "Quantum sensors such as Ram Group's have the potential to transform entire industries across healthcare, oil and gas, industry, defence, communications and aerospace. Novel data economies as well as basic scientific insights in physics that will drive further innovations are possible due to Ram Group's sensors. The impact over the next decade will save lives as well as transform our economy."
