R&D funding accelerates the development of computational fluid dynamics software for quantum computers.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Sept. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — QubitSolve Inc. has been awarded a U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $275,000 to conduct research and development (R&D) work on computational fluid dynamics software for Quantum Computers.
Many industries use computational fluid dynamics to simulate, analyze, optimize, and verify the performance of designs. These simulations eliminate the need for physical prototypes, saving time and resources. Quantum computers can perform certain simulations much faster than classical computers. QubitSolve aims to leverage quantum computers to speed up computational fluid dynamics simulations in the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries.
“NSF accelerates the translation of emerging technologies into transformative new products and services,” said Erwin Gianchandani, NSF Assistant Director for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships. “We take great pride in funding deep-technology startups and small businesses that will shape science and engineering results into meaningful solutions for today and tomorrow.”
“We are excited about our computational fluid dynamics software for quantum computers, which will provide unparalleled speed and precision in the simulations, allowing engineers to enhance product performance while simultaneously reducing development costs and time,” said Dr. Madhava Syamlal, Founder and CEO of QubitSolve.
“I am pleased to see this funding awarded to QubitSolve Inc, in Morgantown, West Virginia. The development of quantum technology in our state is another example of West Virginia’s continued growth and innovation,” said Senator Shelley Moore Capito.
All proposals submitted to the NSF SBIR/STTR program, also known as America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF, undergo a rigorous merit-based review process. Once a small business is awarded a Phase I grant, it becomes eligible to apply for Phase II funding and additional supplements totaling up to $2 million. To get started, startups or entrepreneurs submit a written Project Pitch to see if their technology idea could be a good fit for the program.
