Eviden, ColibrITD and ONERA Partner to Build the 1st Hybrid Quantum Combustion Platform

May 16, 2023

PARIS, May 16, 2023 — Eviden, an Atos business, ColibrITD and ONERA today announce the launch of VulQain, a research project, funded by the French Defense Innovation Agency, to build the first end-to-end hybrid platform to address the phenomenon of combustion and its challenges, including its complexity and non-linearity. By integrating Eviden’s quantum computer emulator and ColibrITD’s quantum software on ONERA’s classical simulation platform, the project team aims to reduce carbon emissions, lower the energy footprint of high-performance computing (HPC) centers and help develop safer engines and turbines in the future.

Most HPC customers are confronted with decarbonization challenges in their particular industry and a reduced product development time. In the meantime, classical simulation is facing limitations: certain complex phenomena like combustion cannot be fully simulated in a reasonable amount of time, and more computations would require more energy, defeating the initial purpose of reducing the environmental impact. A hybrid approach between classical and quantum computing would bring together faster computing capacities with improved computation precision and energy efficiency.

This innovative project will give birth to the first end-to-end quantum computing combustion platform that aims to work on existing noisy and quantum computers. The project team, supported by ColibrITD’s expertise in quantum software, will develop a noise-resistant hybrid algorithm to solve differential equations using the simple use case of a flame structure in 1D. This algorithm will be integrated on Eviden’s quantum computer emulator and, thanks to Atos’ deep expertise in hybrid computing, on Onera’s classical simulation platform to be able to compare both approaches and results.

Cédric Bourrasset, Global Head of HPC-AI and Quantum Computing, Eviden, Atos Group commented: “This project has come to life thanks to Atos’ innovation strategy. Atos and ColibrITD started their collaboration through Scaler, the Group’s start-up accelerator, and decided to solve the computational challenge of combustion through quantum technologies with the support of ONERA. This project is not only about algorithm research, but also to provide those industries that require combustion with a hybrid computational platform, enabling better simulation capacity and precision while improving their energy efficiency.”

Laurent Guiraud, Co-Founder and Quantum Computing R&D Lead, ColibrITD stated: “Being part of the VulQain project with our partners is helping accelerate the 2nd quantum revolution adoption in key industrial sectors. This project will help increase the quantum momentum for real use cases that will benefit the aerospace & defense industry and other sectors.”

Alain Refloch in charge of quantum computing at ONERA QTECH laboratory highlighted: “Today, a lot of effort is being put into developing various qubit technologies. For ONERA, the interest of this project lies in its algorithmic orientation and the fact that the developments on this platform will be hardware-agnostic. This platform can be used for quantum education purposes and in training programs and will serve the air, space and defence technologies.”
