Raytheon developing superconducting computing technology for intelligence community

A Raytheon BBN Technologies-led team is developing prototype cryogenic memory arrays and a scalable control architecture under an award from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity Cryogenic Computing Complexity program.

The team recently demonstrated an energy-efficient superconducting/ferromagnetic memory cell—the first integration of a superconducting switch controlling a cryogenic memory element.

"This research could generate a new approach to supercomputing that is more efficient, faster, less expensive, and requires a smaller footprint," said Zachary Dutton, Ph.D. and manager of the quantum technologies division at Raytheon BBN Technologies.

Raytheon BBN is the prime contractor leading a team that includes:

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