As its name suggests, Quantum Computing focuses on offering applications and solutions leveraging quantum computing technology. Not much has come from the company during August but Quantum is coming off of a busy July. There’s also plenty of speculation abuzz about AI and edge computing stocks.

Quantum received its third NASA subcontract award a few weeks ago, which opened up new opportunities to build and test for NASA Ames. The company will build an instrument for measuring atmospheric particles. “This is our third distinct task order from NASA in four months and it highlights our ability to leverage QCi’s core proprietary photonic capability across a range of products.  In the case of NASA, we were contracted to deliver three capabilities to two different NASA research centers. Our first two engagements contracted earlier this year with NASA Langley Research Center located in Virginia afforded us the opportunity to showcase our powerful and highly secure photonic LiDAR as well as our reservoir computing capability,” explained Sean Gabeler, President of QI Solutions.

AEye Inc. (LIDR)

Shares of AEye Inc. bounced back in the stock market today. The company develops adaptive, high-performance lidar solutions for its clients. Not many things have been released by the company in terms of recent news headlines other than its second quarter financials. AEye beat EPS estimates but missed sales expectations for the quarter.

“AEye has taken a significant step forward this quarter in our path to commercialization in the automotive market,” said Matt Fisch, AEye CEO.

“We’ve achieved major in-vehicle test milestones with three prestigious industry players, including NVIDIA and two global automotive OEMs; AEye has solidified a production-ready supply chain with Continental to deliver an ADAS product at a price well below $1,000; and we have been named a finalist for two automotive series production awards, with a strong pipeline of OEM RFQs representing a sizable revenue opportunity.”

Excitement stemming from the tech sector and autonomous driving has promoted interest in companies like AEye. Even though shares have slipped from recent highs, the penny stock sits much higher than where it was in May.
