Q-Ctrl, a pioneer of scalable quantum control engineering solutions, today announced the completion of a $25 million (USD) Series B financing round led by Airbus Ventures. With this funding, Q-Ctrl will continue to develop its leading position on the industrial market and ensure its technology is widely available to meet the needs of customers across all industries.
Airbus Venture is an early-stage venture capital company that independently funds startups with significant impact in the aerospace industry. It has its headquarters in Silicon Valley and offices in Tokyo and Toulouse.
Q-Ctrl will use the funds to accelerate its development of a new Data as a Service platform. The platform’s unique technology model will be powered by quantum sensing for acceleration, gravity, and magnetic field. The round also included participation from existing partners including new investor Ridgeline Partners.
With an enviable portfolio of delivered projects for Advanced Navigation, the Australian Department of Defence, the Air Force Research Lab, and the Australian Space Agency, the company is currently developing space-qualified quantum sensors via the Moon-to-Mars supply chain capability program and through the Seven Sisters Consortium led by Fleet Space.
The funding comes as a result of major achievements announced by Q-CTRL. One of these achievements is initiating a more than 2500% increase in the performance of quantum algorithms which is executed on a real quantum computer using Q-CTRL’s technology.
