Paper Abstract

Microwave is widely used in present navigation system. It works well, yet it faces precision limit and other challenges. Quantum entanglement has been applied in various fields and resulted in quite remarkable improvement, especially in precision performance, as it can break quantum noise limit. Hence, we attempt to apply quantum entanglement to enhance merits of navigation system performed in microwave regime. This paper introduces principles of quantum microwave entanglement prepared by electro-opto-mechanical converters in detail, which is also adopted by quantum illumination. Meanwhile, a navigation scheme enhanced by quantum microwave entanglement is proposed. The working principles of the scheme, especially those of location, range finding and direction finding, are analyzed in detail. Besides, we compare navigation scheme of quantum microwave entanglement with present navigation scheme. It shows that navigation merits have been enhanced by quantum microwave entanglement, and it may be regarded as a candidate of new navigation method.
