BOULDER, COLO.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
ColdQuanta, Inc., the quantum atomics company, today announced it has been awarded an additional $2.8M across four separate programs from DARPA, NASA, and the U.S. military. These programs will advance the development of ColdQuanta’s cold atom Quantum Core™ technology for quantum positioning (gyroscopes and atomic clocks), quantum sensors (radiofrequency detectors), and quantum communication systems. Following the recent announcement of a $1M award from NASA, these awards put ColdQuanta’s cumulative R&D funding at over $30M.
“ColdQuanta’s success in delivering advanced systems in prior projects, such as our Cold Atom Laboratory system on board the International Space Station, has earned us the trust of major U.S. government agencies and national labs,” said Bo Ewald, CEO of ColdQuanta. “These new awards underscore the importance of quantum atomics as the basis of a wide range of new quantum systems in the future.”
Dr. Dana Anderson, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of ColdQuanta, commented on the news: “While each of these awards focus on a different application of cold atom technology, taken together they are important milestones toward the development of quantum systems for global positioning and communications. Our team is excited about the new projects and the continued development of our Quantum Core technology, with the goal of delivering and deploying quantum positioning systems (QPS), quantum signal processing (QSP) and quantum computers in the future.”
ColdQuanta leads the market in commercializing quantum atomics, the next wave of the information age. The company’s Quantum Core™ technology uses ultra-cold atoms cooled to a temperature of nearly absolute zero using lasers to manipulate and control the atoms with extreme precision. Based on its Quantum Core technology, ColdQuanta manufactures components, instruments, and turnkey systems that address a broad spectrum of applications ranging from timekeeping and navigation to quantum computing, and from radiofrequency (RF) receivers to quantum communications systems. ColdQuanta’s global customers include major commercial and defense companies, all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense, national labs operated by the Department of Energy, NASA, and NIST, and major universities. ColdQuanta is based in Boulder, CO with offices in Madison, Wisconsin and Oxford, UK.
