AFRL to host virtual quantum collider pitch day

On June 15, the Air Force Research Lab will host a Virtual Quantum Collider Pitch Day. The Virtual Quantum Collider will bring together government, industry, academia, and the small business community. This effort seeks to enable small business innovation in order to quickly transfer advanced quantum technologies to our warfighters. During this event: hear from the leaders shaping the future of quantum, network with professionals across the industry, and be a part of an event which will award Air Force funding to exceptional small businesses revolutionizing quantum technology.

The Topics

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.
