London-based firm Orca Computing will work with the ministry as part of the scheme.
这 Ministry of Defence has reportedly acquired the Government’s first quantum computer.
The machines are able to rapidly make highly complex calculations that cannot be done by regular computers.
这 英国广播公司 said the ministry will work with London-based firm Orca Computing on applying the computers to defence applications.
It marked a “milestone moment”, according to Stephen Till of the ministry’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DTSL).
Most computers process data in bits, which have a binary value of either zero or one, whereas quantum computers use a two-state unit for data processing called a qubit.
