Harris & Harris Group Notes Sale of Quantum Computing System by D-Wave Systems to Lockheed Martin Corporation

New York, NY | Posted on May 25th, 2011

Lockheed Martin and D-Wave will collaborate to realize the benefits of a computing platform based upon a quantum annealing processor, as applied to some of Lockheed Martin's most challenging computation problems. The multi-year contract includes a system, maintenance and associated professional services.

D-Wave develops computing systems that leverage the physics of quantum mechanics in order to address problems that are difficult for traditional methods to solve in a cost-effective amount of time. Examples of such problems include software verification and validation, financial risk analysis, affinity mapping and sentiment analysis, object recognition in images, medical imaging classification, compressed sensing and bioinformatics. D-Wave develops an architecture that is optimized for working with such problems. D-Wave's press release may be accessed at www.marketwire.com/press-release/d-wave-systems-sells-its-first-quantum-computing-system-lockheed-martin-corporation-1518805.htm.

Harris & Harris Group is an investor in privately held D-Wave Systems, Inc.
