D-Wave to Deploy Second US-Based Advantage™ Quantum Computer at New Davidson Technologies Global Headquarters

System expected to become first in the U.S. certified for sensitive applications using annealing quantum computing

D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS) (“D-Wave” or the “Company”), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, and Davidson Technologies, Inc., a technology services company that provides innovative engineering, technical and management solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense, aerospace and commercial customers, today announced the forthcoming placement of the second US-based D-Wave Advantage quantum computer. Located at Davidson Technologies’ new global headquarters in Huntsville, AL, the system will eventually be housed in a secure facility developed to run sensitive applications using quantum computing technology.

Initially the Advantage system at Davidson will be accessible to all D-Wave customers located in select countries via the Leap™ real-time quantum cloud service. Once the secure facility is established, the system may be exclusively dedicated for sensitive application development and operations. Building on the companies’ existing relationship, the system placement marks an important advancement of the partnership, as D-Wave and Davidson increase efforts to accelerate quantum computing adoption and technology among government agencies, especially in the area of national security.

“Davidson has a track record of embracing emerging and advanced technologies to address unique and critical national defense challenges and protect our nation’s interests,” said Dr. Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave. “By placing an Advantage quantum computing system onsite at Davidson’s headquarters and creating a unique environment for operation, we’re opening up opportunities to tackle the US government’s most pressing computational problems.”

“By housing the second US-based Advantage quantum computer at our facility in Huntsville, we will provide our government customers with unprecedented access to quantum computing technology in our facility,” said Dale Moore, President of Davidson Technologies. “We’re honored to host a D-Wave Advantage computer and believe this will greatly advance quantum’s role in national security, as we support the critical mission of defending the U.S. and its allies, both at home and abroad.”
