Multi-Service Team’s Quantum Hybrid Constructs Proposal Wins $45M DOD Research Award

A project team investigating quantum constructs with the aim of revolutionizing precision weapons won the 2024 Applied Research for Advancement of Science and Technology Priorities program award. The Army Research Laboratory-led project team’s proposal was one of the nine submissions received by the committee for this year’s ARAP award competition. ARAP is a three-year, $45 million program that aims to support scientists and engineers across the Department of Defense and at least 20 new graduate and post-doctoral students, the DOD said.

The winning team, which is a collaboration of representatives from the Army Research Laboratory, the Naval Research Laboratory and the Air Force Research Laboratory, proposed to advance quantum technology applications to kinetic weapons systems. The CLAWS proposal seeks to enable greater precision at longer range, lower collateral damage and more agile platforms.

Steven Wax, acting deputy chief technology officer for science and technology in the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, said his office will follow the progress of the winning team’s proposal.
