MemComputing Awarded Two New AFWERX Phase II SBIR Contracts

MemComputing, Inc., developer of disruptive high-performance computing technology, has been awarded two new AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contracts based on successfully completing two earlier Phase I awards. 

MemComputing is working with both the Air Force and the Space Force on High Performance Computing (HPC) applications that are critical for advancing next generation satellite and national security capabilities.
