Boeing has established a new Disruptive Computing and Networks (DC&N) organization within the company to develop computing and communications solutions for advanced commercial and government aerospace applications.

By leveraging core technologies in quantum communications and computing, neuromorphic processing and advanced sensing, the new organization will enable Boeing to develop breakthrough solutions in secure communications, artificial intelligence and complex system optimization. In addition to building internal capabilities, DC&N will also work closely with Boeing HorizonX, the company’s innovation cell, to identify external partners for collaboration to accelerate growth.

“Advanced computing and communications technologies are increasingly at the core of all aerospace innovation,” said Greg Hyslop, Boeing’s chief technology officer and senior vice president of Engineering, Test & Technology. “We’re excited to stand up the Disruptive Computing and Networks organization because it will help us develop new businesses and partnerships in this rapidly-expanding field, delivering more value to our customers and helping further define our second century of aerospace leadership”

DC&N will be based in Southern California and operate as a part of Boeing Engineering, Test & Technology. Charles Toups, formerly the vice president and general manager of Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T), will lead the organization as vice president and general manager.
