Correlations between entangled quantum states can be exploited to dramatically improve detection sensitivity under certain conditions. In this paper we argue that space-based surveillance ideally satisfies these conditions and represents a practical application of quantum sensing for the detection of near-earth objects which threaten spacecraft or terrestrial life.
