- From a field of approximately 300 applicants, the Army chose 10 winning candidates. QuSecure was the only winning candidate in the quantum computing space.
Young J. Bang, principal deputy for the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology, addressed the finalists, saying “Everyone, regardless of if they’re a finalist or not, is a winner in my book because they’re receiving mentorship from the Army, the Program Executive Offices, Army Futures Command and the community, and you’re building relationships. We want to help you continue your partnership with the Army to help us innovate faster, fail, pivot and ultimately modernize and digitize the Army.”
