NSF’s S&T Council Seeks Info for Quantum Information Science Policy, Strategy

Jeff Brody

A subcommittee within the National Science and Technology Council urges agencies to help sustain the country's spot as the world's frontrunner in quantum information science. NSTC's Subcommittee on Quantum Information Science seeks agency input regarding eight different questions on the scientific area as the council works to develop a QIS strategic overview, the National Science Foundation said Thursday in a Federal Register notice.

SCQIS aims to identify: actions to implement QIS policy, scientific challenges that require focus, actions to establish an innovation ecosystem, ways to sustain a QIS workforce and required infrastructure for research and development. The subcommittee also seeks to determine: stakeholder partnerships to foster QIS R&D, methods to capture international QIS expertise and approaches to grant U.S. researchers access to international QIS technologies.

The effort supports the National Quantum Initiative Act that aims to boost the country's QIS activities. Interested parties may submit responses through July 29.

The U.S. Air Force and Northrop Grumman have completed a critical design review under a program that aims to deploy satellite communications payloads in the North Polar Region. The Enhanced Polar System Recapitalization program would deliver eXtended Data Rate payloads that would operate in the region until USAF gets access to polar variants of protected and evolved satcom technology in the 2030s, Los Angeles AF Base said Monday.
