Photonic Classical Quantum I/O
Q. Briefly Describe the Technology Innovation: Up to 500 words describing the technical innovation that would be the focus of a Phase I project, including a sentence discussing the origins of the innovation as well as an explanation as to why it meets the program’s mandate to focus on supporting research and development (R&D) of unproven, high-impact innovations. This section should not just discuss the features and benefits of your solution, it must also clearly explain the uniqueness, innovation and/or novelty in how your product or service is designed and functions.
A. Enable quantum hardware algorithms with high I/O (query & training) requirements through photonic classical to quantum (C2Q) and quantum to classical information processing.
Q. Briefly Describe the Technical Objectives and Challenges: Up to 500 words describing the R&D work to be done in a Phase I project, including the highest-risk research challenges to be investigated in a Phase I effort that are specific to your innovation. This section should also include a brief description of your unique scientific approach to solving those challenges and how this would lead to a sustainable competitive advantage for the company. Please note that challenges common to an industry or market are not responsive in this section.
Q. Briefly Describe the Market Opportunity: Up to 250 words describing the customer profile and pain point(s) that will be the near-term commercial focus related to this technical project.
Q. Briefly Describe the Company and Team : Up to 250 words describing the background and current status of the submitting small business, including team members related to the technical and/or commercial efforts discussed in this Project Pitch.
