Infleqtion and L3Harris collaborate
On December 7, Infleqtion announced a strategic collaboration with L3Harris to jointly develop and transition quantum radio frequency (RF) sensing technology from the lab to the field. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in advancing quantum capabilities to benefit advanced dual-use applications.
Leveraging combined expertise and resources, the two companies are poised to make groundbreaking strides by pushing the boundaries of what is currently achievable in quantum RF technology, the companies said. The collaboration will deliver a revolutionary RF receiver that defies traditional constraints based on highly excited Rydberg states of atoms, enabling continuous tuning from Hz to THz, with resilience to interference and sensitivity close to the blackbody radiation limit.
Together, L3Harris, the prime contractor, and Infleqtion, the subcontractor, recently won a classified quantum RF sensing program. This win underscores the strength of the partnership and the capabilities of both companies to deliver innovative solutions for sensitive and critical defense applications. Infleqtion’s Quantum RF solution, SqyWire, was recently demonstrated at the Army C5ISR NetModX23 evaluation.
“Quantum RF is a revolutionary technology addressing critical network management challenges,” said Dr. William Clark, vice president of quantum development at Infleqtion. “This collaboration with L3Harris marks a significant step forward for Infleqtion to bring the potential of quantum applications to enhance secure communications.”
“We’re driven by innovation and are committed to advancing disruptive technology,” said Chris Dorny, head of quantum technologies at L3Harris. “With customers’ mission-critical needs always in mind, our more than 50,000 employees deliver end-to-end technology solutions connecting the space, air, land, sea and cyber domains. The next phase of quantum technology is just the beginning for L3Harris.”
