Technology corporation IBM and aerospace and defense company Raytheon Technologies have announced a strategic collaboration to develop artificial intelligence (AI), cryptography, and quantum technologies to advance new aerospace, defense, and intelligence solutions.

The companies say they will jointly develop advanced artificial intelligence, cryptographic, and quantum solutions for the aerospace, defense, and intelligence industries, including the federal government. AI and quantum technologies promise to give aerospace and government customers the ability to design systems more quickly, better secure their communications networks, and improve decision-making processes.

By combining IBM's breakthrough commercial research with Raytheon Technologies' own research, plus aerospace and defense expertise, the companies say they will be able to crack once-unsolvable challenges.

"The rapid advancement of quantum computing and its exponential capabilities has spawned one of the greatest technological races in recent history – one that demands unprecedented agility and speed," says Dario Gil, senior vice president, IBM, and director of Research. "Our new collaboration with Raytheon Technologies will be a catalyst in advancing these state-of-the-art technologies – combining their expertise in aerospace, defense and intelligence with IBM's next-generation technologies to make discovery faster, and the scope of that discovery larger than ever."

In addition to artificial intelligence and quantum, the companies say they will jointly research and develop advanced cryptographic technologies that lie at the heart of some of the toughest problems faced by the aerospace industry and government agencies.

"Take something as fundamental as encrypted communications," says Mark E. Russell, Raytheon Technologies chief technology officer. "As computing and quantum technologies advance, existing cybersecurity and cryptography methods are at risk of becoming vulnerable. IBM and Raytheon Technologies will now be able to collaboratively help customers maintain secure communications and defend their networks better than previously possible."

The companies say they are building a technical collaboration team to quickly insert IBM's commercial technologies into active aerospace, defense, and intelligence programs. The same team will also identify promising technologies for jointly developing long-term system solutions by investing research dollars and talent.
