SHAPING THE FUTURE OF A NEW SCIENCE

Quantum Information Science

…is at a place where human ingenuity, imagination and chance intersect to dramatically improve the efficiency of life as we know it.  It is a field of study that will harness certain laws of particle physics to dramatically improve the acquisition, transmission and processing of information.

HEART OF THE MATTER || About the Collider

Public Event:
Monday, June 15 12:00pm – 4:30pm

Private Pitch Sessions:
Monday and Tuesday, June 15 & 16

Interested in United States Air Force quantum information science programs and activities?
The Virtual Quantum Collider will bring together government, industry, academia, and the small business community as we explore pioneering quantum technologies. Presentations by government leaders will discuss this emerging technology and how its capabilities will revolutionize U.S. Air Force operations. This is an ideal opportunity to learn about quantum initiatives and innovations that are being developed for U.S. Air Force needs and interests.

During this event: hear from the leaders shaping the future of quantum, get to know professionals from across the industry, and be a part of an event which will award Air Force funding to exceptional small businesses.

COMPETING PARTICLES || Private Pitch Sessions

The United States Air Force is seeking innovative technologies and/or processes which will advance the development of Quantum Enabling Technologies and applications. Specifically, we’re interested in advancing and retaining scientific and military dominance in the application of quantum science to Air Force needs and interests.

During the Quantum Collider, the United States Air Force will conduct a Pitch Day for Quantum Information Technologies where they will hear pitches from companies who have submitted applications pursuing STTR PHASE I contracts. Invited companies will give pitches to a panel made up of Air Force end-users, Air Force major commands, program offices, and the Air Force Research Laboratory. The topics will explore quantum timing, sensing, information processing/computing, and communication/networking. More details on each topic below.
