LEESBURG, Va., Sept. 19, 2023 — QI Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quantum Computing Inc. (QCi), has signed a five-year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to develop quantum technology applications in support of USSOCOM programs and requirements.
USSOCOM is the premier entity of the U.S. Department of Defense that deploys the world’s latest technology to conduct global special operations and activities as part of the Joint Force, in concert with the U.S. government interagency, allies, and partners, to advance U.S. policies and objectives worldwide.
QI Solutions (QIS) is a nontraditional Defense company with a portfolio of quantum technology including Quantum Photonic Detection and Ranging (QpDAR) sensors, computing, communications, cryptography, and advanced microchip solutions. 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.
