In 2022, the Federal Ecosystem for Accelerating (at Scale) Quantum Computational Power and Quantum Networks Emerged

The U.S. Government’s (USG) strategic alignment on all things quantum security has been encouraging over the course of 2022, culminating with the passage of the Quantum Cybersecurity Preparedness Act in the Senate on Friday, December 16th, which is now ready for the President’s signature sometime this month. While still formative, dedicated new physical infrastructure and collaborative operational structures (designed as platforms and ecosystems to induce network effects) are also in place to support the computational power requirements, physical access and enhanced security concerns unique to quantum innovation.  Our coverage of these efforts can be found in this post.
