D-Wave's mission is to integrate new discoveries in physics and computer science into breakthrough new approaches to computation. The Company's flagship product, the D-Wave One, is built around a novel type of superconducting processor that uses quantum mechanics to massively accelerate computation. In 2010 Lockheed Martin purchased Serial Number 1, completing the world's first sale of a commercial quantum computer. With headquarters near Vancouver, Canada, its US offices, as well as its superconducting chip foundry, are located in Silicon Valley.
