The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting and webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Optimization with Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices (ONISQ) program and to facilitate teaming. The principal objective of the ONISQ program is to demonstrate quantitative advantage of Quantum Information Processing (QIP) over the best classical methods for solving combinatorial optimization problems using Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices. In addition, the program will identify families of problem instances in combinatorial optimization where QIP is likely to have the biggest impact.
The goal of the AWE program is to enable water extraction from the atmosphere to produce a low-powered system with two form-factors: one capable of providing potable water for expeditionary forces (daily output sufficient for the individual warfighter), and another for stabilization missions (daily output to supply ~150 people).
