About Xairos: Xairos is an early-stage but growing startup developing quantum communication systems around entanglement distribution. Xairos’s near-term focus is on quantum clock synchronization (QCS), an exclusive technology that provides very accurate and secure time transfer for position, navigation, and timing (PNT) applications. Leveraging existing contracts with the US Air Force, NASA, and Navy, Xairos has long-term plans to commercialize this important technology.
