Logical Qubits (LogiQ) Program

Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity | Published July 2, 2015  -  Deadline September 1, 2015
cpvs

Synopsis IARPA is seeking innovative solutions for the Logical Qubits (LogiQ) Program. LogiQ intends to build a logical qubit from a number of imperfect physical qubits by combining high-fidelity multi-qubit operations with extensible integration. The LogiQ Program is envisioned to begin 1 February 2016 and end by 31 January 2021. Current quantum computing systems have important limitations that hinder their path to fault-tolerant quantum computation. First and foremost, the overall performance of multi-qubit systems is inferior to the performance of the individual qubits. These physical qubits are susceptible to system noise and losses induced by their environment, insufficient operation fidelity, lack of error correction, poor feedback and dynamical control, and inadequate multi-qubit control. Success in building practical quantum computers hinges on the ability to combat environment-induced decoherence and errors in quantum gates. This can be effectively and extensibly achieved by innovations that encode physical qubits into a logical qubit. The Logical Qubits (LogiQ) Program seeks to overcome the limitations of current multi-qubit systems, described in the previous paragraph, by building a logical qubit from a number of imperfect physical qubits. LogiQ envisions that program success will require a multi-disciplinary approach that increases the fidelity of quantum gates, state preparation, and qubit readout; improves classical control; implements active quantum feedback; has the ability to reset and reuse qubits; and performs further system improvements. Additionally, LogiQ seeks a modular architecture design of two coupled logical qubits that creates a flexible and feasible path to larger systems. Modular designs facilitate the incorporation of next-generation advances with minimal constraints, while maintaining or improving performance. Proposal Due Date for Initial Round of Selections: 5:00PM Eastern, September 1, 2015

Consolidated questions and answers will be periodically posted on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website (https://www.fbo.gov/) and linked to the IARPA website (http://www.iarpa.gov); answers will not be sent directly to the requestor. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) often selects its research efforts through the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) process. The BAA will appear first on the FedBizOpps website, http://www.fedbizopps.gov, and then be linked to the IARPA website at http://www.iarpa.gov. The following information is for those wishing to respond to this BAA. IARPA invests in high-risk, high-payoff research that has the potential to provide our nation with an overwhelming intelligence advantage over future adversaries. This BAA solicits abstracts/proposals for the Office of Smart Collection (SC). The mission of the Office of Smart Collection is to dramatically improve the value of collected data from all sources. The Office seeks to achieve this goal by, among other activities, developing new sensor and transmission technologies, new collection techniques that more precisely target desired information, and means for collecting information from previously inaccessible sources. In addition, the Office pursues new mechanisms for combining information gathered from multiple sources to enhance the quality, reliability, and utility of collected information. The following topics (in no particular order) are of interest to SC: o Innovative methods or tools for identifying and/or creating novel sources of new information; o Sensor technologies that dramatically improve the reach, sensitivity, size, weight, power and duration for collection of broad signal or signature types; o Methods for combining different measures and/or sensors to improve performance and accuracy of systems; o Approaches for assessing and quantifying the ecological-validity of behavioral, neuro- and social science research; o Innovative approaches to gain access to denied environments; o Secure communication to and from collection points; o Tagging, Tracking, and Location (TTL) techniques; o Electrically small antennas and other advanced radio frequency (RF) concepts; o Agile architectures that intelligently distill useful information at the collector; o Innovative means and methods to ensure the veracity of data collected from a variety of sources; o Automated methods for sensor data fusion without predefined interface descriptions; o Approaches to enable signal collection systems to conduct more effective targeted information acquisition rather than bulk collection; and o Tools to identify and mask signal streams and records that contain personal information to avoid unauthorized collection and dissemination. This announcement seeks research ideas for topics that are not addressed by emerging or ongoing IARPA programs or other published IARPA solicitations. It is primarily, but not solely, intended for early stage research that may lead to larger, focused programs through a separate BAA in the future, so periods of performance generally will not exceed 12 months. Offerors should demonstrate that their proposed effort has the potential to make revolutionary, rather than incremental, improvements to intelligence capabilities. Research that primarily results in evolutionary improvement to the existing state of practice is specifically excluded.

IARPA invests in high-risk, high-payoff research that has the potential to provide our nation with an overwhelming intelligence advantage over future adversaries. This BAA solicits abstracts/proposals for the Office of Safe & Secure Operations (SSO). SSO focuses on the Intelligence Community's (IC) ability to operate freely and effectively in an often hostile and increasingly interdependent and resource-constrained environment. While some of our challenges stem from adversary activity, others emerge coincidentally with changes in technology or business practices. SSO programs are most often not application-specific, but concentrate instead on creating the foundations of a powerful and robust infrastructure for the IC that can maintain its integrity over time. This BAA solicits research that explores or demonstrates the feasibility of revolutionary concepts in computation, trust establishment and maintenance, and detecting and deflecting hostile intent. The following topics (in no particular order) are of interest to SSO: • Computational methods, including algorithms, based on models other than digital Turing machines and platforms other than CMOS whose attributes are matched to efficient or secure solution of intelligence problems (e.g., optical, analog, biomolecular, neuromorphic, quantum, and hybrid computing systems); • Novel ideas for technologies enabling energy-efficient computation beyond the efficiency projected for end-of-roadmap silicon, as well as strategies for using existing computing technologies to compute with lower power budgets; • Design tools for non-traditional computing architectures/technologies and non-traditional materials; • Robotized research methods; • Approaches to operating securely with imperfect equipment, error-prone users, compromised components, and/or within an environment of unknown trustworthiness. Constructing systems that can perform reliable and secure computations when some fraction of their components is unreliable or insecure; • New techniques and applications for algebraic statistics (AS) and software development for AS with an emphasis on user interface; • New algorithms and techniques that take advantage of quantum entanglement to perform tasks (excluding quantum annealing) that are inefficient or impossible with classical algorithms and/or current platforms; • Methods (including compilers and programming languages) for performing complicated computations securely, e.g. multi-party secure functional computation, full homomorphic encryption (HE), and HE applications, but with low overhead; • Detection, classification, and mitigation of attempts by adversaries to compromise safety and security, including, but not limited to penetration and manipulation of electronic infrastructure; and • Assurance techniques that take advantage of emergent enterprise architectural constructs, e.g. software-defined networking, multi-tenancy, and virtual hosting. This announcement seeks research ideas for topics that are not addressed by emerging or ongoing IARPA programs or other published IARPA solicitations. It is primarily, but not solely, intended for early stage research that may lead to larger, focused programs through a separate BAA in the future, so periods of performance generally will not exceed 12 months. Offerors should demonstrate that their proposed effort has the potential to make revolutionary, rather than incremental, improvements to intelligence capabilities.

This contract action was not awarded as a fixed price type because uncertainties involved in contract performance did not permit costs to be estimated with sufficient accuracy to use any type of fixed price contract. As such, a cost-reimbursement type action was awarded (FAR 16.301-2). The Space and Missile Defense Advisory and Assistance Services (SMDA2S) acquisition, Solicitation Number W91260-13-R-0003, was conducted in support of the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT) and supported agencies for their various missions such as: Space; Missile Defense; Global Strike; Information Operations (IO); Cyber Operations (CO); Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR); Transformational Communications Architecture (TCA); Friendly Force Tracking; Integrated Joint Special Technical Operations (IJSTO); Commercial Imagery; and related missions. The scope of the SMDA2S effort provides Advisory and Assistance Services (A&AS) in the following major functional areas: Infrastructure and Organizational Support; Intelligence; System Engineering and Integration; Integrated Logistics; Emerging Technologies; Operations; Exercise Planning and Execution; Training; Communications; Staff Support; and Test & Evaluation. The SMDA2S source selection was conducted as a Total Small Business Set-Aside in accordance with FAR 15.3, as supplemented by DFARS 215.3 and AFARS 5315.3. A Best Value Continuum - Tradeoff Process was utilized and in accordance with the SMDA2S Solicitation, four factors were evaluated: Factor 1 Management, Factor 2 Mission Capability, Factor 3 Past Performance and Factor 4 Cost. The relative importance of each factor was as follows: Mission Capability was more important than Management, and the two combined were more important than Past Performance. The non-Cost Factors, combined, are significantly more important than the Cost Factor. However, cost is still a major consideration in the source selection decision. The award was executed on 21 May 2015 to Alpha-Omega Change Engineering (AOCE), Boecore Inc. (Boecore), PeopleTec Inc. (PeopleTec), and Summit Technical Solutions LLC (STS), for a total program ceiling of $496M. The principle place of performance shall be established and supported in Colorado Springs, CO.
