Quantum mechanics offers intriguing opportunities for sensing applications with accuracies beyond the classically obtainable limits. An especially interesting approach is based on using entangled microwave photons for radar applications. Here, we discuss a novel frequency-degenerate scheme for quantum sensing with superconducting microwave circuits. The same microwave regime is utilized in conventional radars owing to the transparency window of the atmosphere. Hence, our scheme suffers no conversion losses and, therefore, is promising for future real-world applications.
