SBQuantum is a Canadian startup that uses quantum magnetometry technology to provide inspection solutions for underground or undersea infrastructure. The solution exploits the quantum properties in nitrogen-vacancy diamonds for its sensor. This enables it to perform vector analysis with a high degree of sensitivity while remaining durable and power-efficient while avoiding the need for careful [...]
Joining them is Shine Bright Quantum, otherwise known as SBQuantum. Founded in Sherbrooke in 2017, it is a spinout from the Université de Sherbrooke’s Institut Quantique and ‘develops diamond-based quantum sensors with vectorial capabilities for space, defence and infrastructure inspection’. A founding member of Quantum Industry Canada (QIC) and a leading company in quantum sensing, cofounders David [...]
SBQ is proud to be the second prize winner of the MagQuest challenge! Partnering with Spire's agile nanosatellite conops capabilities, diamond based accurate magnetometry is the future of the WMM!

Unlocking the next generation of quantum sensing devices SBQuantum is a start-up company that is seeking to transform navigation in GPSdenied environments. The company develops and commercialises diamond-based quantum magnetometers for commercial and research applications, in particular for use in autonomous vehicles. Its goal is twofold: to improve the accuracy and reliability of navigation systems, [...]
The following projects have been awarded funding under the second component of the Competitive Projects element (1b). The objective of this Component is to continue the S&T efforts of Component 1a solutions for the purpose of progressing the solution to a higher Solution Readiness Level (SRL). Please note that submission titles appear in the language [...]
IN AUGUST OF 1905, a strange ship set sail from San Francisco Bay. The wooden brig, called Galilee—also the name of the sea where Jesus, riding in a boat himself, once allegedly soothed a storm—had been retrofitted for a new job: The Carnegie Institution's Department of Terrestrial Magnetism wanted to sail it around the Pacific Ocean, to measure [...]
Refining the World Magnetic Model, SBQuantum is one of the six innovator teams for MagQuest Phase 3.Pier-Luc Whissell2020-08-20T17:03:31-04:00
Six innovator teams have joined Phase 3 of MagQuest, a $2.1 million competition to advance how we measure Earth’s magnetic field. With MagQuest, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is accelerating novel approaches to geomagnetic data collection for the World Magnetic Model. Over the next several months, the six teams will iterate and refine their designs and testing plans [...]
