Raytheon-Led Team to Build Superconducting Computing Tech for IARPA Program - top government contractors - best government contracting eventAn industry team led by Raytheon‘s BBN Technologies business has begun to develop a superconducting computing prototype for cryogenic memory arrays and scalable control architecture under a contract from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity.

Raytheon said Tuesday the team integrated a superconducting switch with a cryogenic memory element during a demonstration of the superconducting/ferromagnetic memory cell for IARPA’s Cryogenic Computing Complexity program.

The C3 program seeks a superconducting computing system that can mitigate power cooling issues and succeed end-of-roadmap complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors used for high performance computing platforms.

Zachary Dutton, manager of quantum technologies at Raytheon BBN Technologies, said the research effort aims to develop a supercomputing approach that will require a smaller footprint.

BBN Technologies’ team members on the project are:

  • Canon U.S.A
  • Cornell University
  • Hypres
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • New York University
  • Spin Transfer Technologies
  • University of Rochester
  • University of Stellenbosch
