DARPA Proposers Day for Quantum Augmented Network Program

(May 2, 2023) The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Information Innovation Office (I2O) is sponsoring a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the anticipated Quantum Augmented Network (QuANET) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). DARPA’s QuANET program will develop a hybrid quantum-classical communication network architecture to enable quantum enhancements to security and covertness on today’s classical networks. The program seeks to augment existing software infrastructure and network protocols with quantum properties to mitigate some of the attack vectors that are pervasive on classical (non-quantum) networks.
