SandboxAQ, a quantum software startup spun off from Alphabet Inc. earlier this year, has won a Phase 1 SBIR for the U.S. Air Force to investigate who its suite of software solutions can protect the Air Force and Space Force data networks from quantum attacks. Phase 1 SBIR awards have typical amounts of about $225,000 for programs that last 6-12 months. The activities that SandboxAQ will perform will include conducting post-quantum cryptographic inventory analysis and performance benchmarking. You can read SandboxAQ’s press release announcing this award on their website here.
