2021 marked the inaugural year of the Quantum Technology Challenge (QTC 2021) and Army Robotics Exposition (ARX 2021) which featured static and live demonstrations from industry representatives and Army’s Future Land Warfare Branch.

The Australian Army hosted the landmark event over 19 - 20 April 2021 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and highlighted the latest Australian-led technology, partnerships, innovation and people.

At the ARX 2021, the Robotic & Autonomous Systems Implementation & Coordination Office (RICO), within Army’s Future Land Warfare Branch, demonstrated Leader Follower technology and engaged with over 55 organisations who are at the cutting-edge of robotic and autonomous systems. MICRO-X is an award-winning x-ray technology company and showcased their innovative carbon nano tube technology. SimCentric Technologies displayed their smart wearable technology for Army’s training operations and Quantx Labs discussed how quantum technologies can support Army by detecting metal objects underground. The exhibitors showcased their potential to deliver unprecedented capabilities for Army in the land domain.

Major General Simon Stuart kicked off QTC 2021 with the official launch of the Army Quantum Technology Roadmap. The roadmap outlines how Army will explore quantum technology and its applications in the future operating environment. The event provided a unique opportunity for specialists from academia and industry to pitch their solution-focused ideas on Quantum Technology.
