QIS will work with USSOCOM’s Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate on the development of advanced quantum solutions for use by Special Operations Forces (SOF) in their unique mission roles.
“We are very excited and honored to have the opportunity to work in partnership with the Department of Defense and USSOCOM to develop unique Quantum Solutions based on our advanced technologies that will ultimately be used to protect our country,” said Sean Gabeler, President of QI Solutions.
Robert Liscouski, CEO of Quantum Computing Inc., added, “This is a significant opportunity for QCi and QI Solutions. OCRADAs demonstrate the DoD’s belief that advanced quantum technologies can be fielded to address critical problems – today, not in several years.” Click here to read September 19 announcement.
