    Infleqtion Unveils Cutting-Edge Quantum RF System Changing the Landscape of Defense Communications

    AUSTIN, Texas – Infleqtion, a leading quantum information company, announced the successful demonstration of its groundbreaking Quantum Radio Frequency (QRF) aperture/receiver system, SqyWire, at the Army C5ISR Network Modernization Experiment 2023 (NetModX23) evaluation. This marks a significant milestone in the advancement of C5ISR technologies and their practical integration into military operations.

    NetModX23, conducted by the Army’s C5ISR Center, serves as an essential platform for testing disruptive technologies and bridging the gap between theoretical potential and real-world applicability. The evaluation aimed to showcase innovations that could revolutionize defense communications and enhance interoperability with existing systems.

    SqyWire’s multifunction capabilities, secure transmission, and ultra-broadband spectrum awareness stood out during a series of open-air tests and demonstrations at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ. It demonstrated exceptional receiver sensitivity across a wide range of spectrum from HF through SHF, highlighting its effectiveness in various communication scenarios.

    With its impressive performance, SqyWire seamlessly integrated with a leading electronic warfare sensor and a SINCGARS tactical radio, underscoring its potential to revolutionize modern military communications infrastructure. Its advanced features and secure transmission capabilities make it a game-changer in defense communications.

    Infleqtion’s QRF technology harnesses the power of Rydberg atoms, enabling wireless communication with unprecedented benefits. It offers ultra-wideband coverage, surpassing traditional RF limitations, and delivers extended battery life, even in remote areas. SqyWire’s compact size and efficient processing power also contribute to cost-effective network expansion.

    “QRF is a revolutionary technology addressing critical RF network management challenges,” said Dr. William Clark, VP of Quantum Development at Infleqtion. “SqyWire’s capabilities are unrivaled in the industry, and its potential to enhance defense communications is immense.”

    By pushing the boundaries of traditional RF systems, Infleqtion is at the forefront of delivering cutting-edge quantum-enabled products that transform communication, navigation, and exploration. With a strong foundation in ColdQuanta’s pioneering quantum research, Infleqtion is dedicated to delivering precise and powerful solutions for commercial organizations, the United States, and allied governments.

    Infleqtion’s hardware products and AI-powered solutions address market needs in areas such as precise navigation and timing (PNT), global communication security and efficiency, resilient energy distribution, and accelerated quantum computing. With offices in multiple locations worldwide, including Austin, TX; Boulder, CO; Chicago, IL; Madison, WI; Melbourne, AU; and Oxford, UK, Infleqtion continues to revolutionize the way we communicate, navigate, and discover.


    What is QRF technology?

    QRF technology, short for Quantum Radio Frequency technology, is a revolutionary approach to wireless communication that utilizes the unique properties of Rydberg atoms. It transcends the limitations of traditional RF systems, offering ultra-wideband coverage, extended battery life, and enhanced processing power.

    What is the purpose of the NetModX23 evaluation?

    The NetModX23 evaluation is conducted by the Army’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center. It serves as a proving ground for disruptive C5ISR technologies, allowing for the testing and validation of innovative solutions that can enhance defense communications.
