In another example of Industry Public collaboration effort, Virginia Innovation Partnership Corporation (VIPC) announced a partnership with Quantum Computing Inc. (QCI) (NASDAQ: QUBT). The focus would be to determine optimal flight trajectories for unmanned aerial vehicles leveraging QCI’s Path to Quantum consulting, Qatalyst™ software, and Quantum Photonic Systems hardware. “Our partnership with Virginia-based company QCI is designed to test and discover the impact of quantum computing solutions on complex problems,” said David Ihrie, CTO and VP for Strategic Initiatives at VIPC.

As a part of this project, QCI and VIPC plan to leverage sensor and micro-weather data collected by the Virginia Flight Information Exchange (VA-FIX), an information hub focused on providing authoritative state and local data in support of unmanned aerial system.
