Within the last decade, the field of quantum remote sensing has garnered a lot of interest from the radar and communication community. Many papers on this topic have compared the performance of a classical system versus a quantum system. However, the concept of a system using both classical and quantum components in conjunction has not been explored thoroughly. This paper documents the design and simulation of a quantum+classical cooperative remote sensing design in the optical regime. The arrangement uses quantum correlations created by entangled photons in addition to conventional classical waveform correlations. We show that the composite quantum+classical system exhibits increased performance compared to a pure classical system alone.
