DARPA is seeking Abstract Proposals in the technical domain of quantum computing applications.
Up to USD$300,000 over 12 months is available. Funding is provided for 1 FTE effort and materials, equipment and other direct costs.
This solicitation is part of DARPA Exploration for Advanced Research Concepts Master Solicitation DARPA-EA-23-01.
The IMPAQT ARC Opportunity is soliciting ideas to explore the question: What are the applications for a quantum system with N*q > 10,000 as a co-processor for a classical computational system?
IMPAQT ARC will explore novel algorithms and applications that can leverage practical quantum systems that are expected to be demonstrated within the next several years.
IMPAQT will connect previously disparate communities; specifically, IMPAQT proposals should connect quantum computing (QC) researchers with application domain experts working on state-of-the-art classical solutions to target problems.
Abstract proposals are due 5 June 2023.
