BURNABY, British Columbia, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NEC Australia and Quantum Computing firm D-Wave Systems Inc. (D-Wave) are proud to have been selected by the Australian Department of Defence to demonstrate the use of hybrid quantum computing technology to solve a “last mile resupply” problem. The technology optimises how autonomous vehicles are used to resupply army forces from a central base. NEC Australia and D-Wave were selected via a competitive proposal process. NEC and D-Wave entered into an agreement in November 2019 to accelerate the use of quantum computing by working with customers to develop applications. This is NEC’s first quantum computing application use-case developed outside Japan. NEC Australia is a highly-experienced enterprise Managed Services company, with expertise in working across State, Federal...
