Public Sector

SandboxAQ strives to accelerate the adoption of AI + Quantum (AQ) technology to help the U.S. Government and its Allies tackle hard challenges and ensure a better, safer world for all. Our Public Sector team works with government agencies to protect sensitive data, deploy quantum sensors for applications such as GPS-denied navigation, accelerate materials discovery, and more. Our capabilities harness the power of classical computing architecture, enabling us to deliver AQ solutions now – years before error-corrected quantum computers become available.

Core Capabilities


Prevent current and future cyber attacks with AQtive Guard, our cryptography management platform. Discover cryptographic weaknesses and vulnerabilities and implement cryptographic agility throughout your IT infrastructure.


Open new pathways using quantum sensing, which has applications such as wide-area anomaly detection, geodesy, spectroscopy, medical diagnostics, and assured positioning, navigation, and timing.


Apply quantum physics to accelerate the pace of design and discovery in areas such as chemical, pharmaceutical, and material science. Our rapid machine-learning models are trained on data created from physics simulations run on classical, high-performance computers.

Our Differentiators

World-Class Expertise

SandboxAQ’s global, multidisciplinary team is unparalleled. Approximately 65% of our staff hold PhDs in areas such as physics, mathematics, cryptography, chemistry, engineering, AI, medicine, and photonics. Our Public Sector team has a deep understanding of government needs with more than 80 years of combined experience in government service.

Trusted, dual-use technology
Trusted, Dual-Use Technology

SandboxAQ and Cryptosense, which was recently acquired, were among the 12 initial collaborators selected by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology for its National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence’s Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography project. We have also deployed AQ solutions with major telecom and healthcare providers, financial institutions, and others.

Platform agnostic
Platform Agnostic

We develop practical AQ solutions that run on today’s classical computing architecture – in the cloud, on-premise, or at the edge – with the ability to tap into quantum computers when they become available. We work with all major cloud providers and government-specific networks so customers can maintain their preferred IT environment.
