Infleqtion Names Dr. Marco Palumbo as Director of Business Development in the United Kingdom




Infleqtion, the world’s quantum information company, today announced the appointment of Dr. Marco Palumbo to Director of Business Development, UK. Dr. Palumbo joins Infleqtion from Innovate UK, a non-departmental funding delivery agency of the British Government, where he served as Innovation Lead in the Quantum Technologies Challenge team, a unit responsible for more than £200m of investment in the quantum industry in the United Kingdom (UK) to date.

Based in Infleqtion’s Oxford office, Dr. Palumbo will identify strategic opportunities to expand Infleqtion’s market presence in the UK and collaborate with potential partners in the emerging quantum technology ecosystem. He will also develop and launch the next evolution of Infleqtion’s growth strategy and foster relationships with potential customers across both public and private industries.

“I’m proud to welcome Dr. Marco Palumbo as the Director of Business Development at Infleqtion UK,” said Scott Faris, CEO of Infleqtion. “Dr. Palumbo brings expertise in quantum technology and a steadfast strategic vision. He will play a pivotal role in forging new partnerships and advancing the frontiers of quantum innovation in the UK and beyond.”

Dr. Palumbo served as the Principal Licensing and Ventures Manager at Oxford University Innovation. There, he managed an extensive portfolio of intellectual properties and was instrumental in the creation of 12 different university spinouts. Notably, he was instrumental in the creation of Oxford Quantum Circuits, Quantum Motion Technologies, Oxford Ionics, Orca Computing, Quantum Dice and QuantrolOx, all core companies in the British and international quantum ecosystems. Dr. Palumbo holds a bachelor’s degree in materials engineering from the University of Salento, and a doctorate in engineering from the University of Durham. He held postdoctoral positions at the University of Durham, the University of Salento and the University of Surrey.

“This is a time of rapid growth and development for both Infleqtion and the broader quantum industry,” said Dr. Marco Palumbo, Director of Business Development, Infleqtion UK. “We’re on the cusp of true quantum adoption, and I look forward to leveraging my passion and experience to help Infleqtion shape  the future of quantum technology.”

Today’s news comes on the heels of an exciting year for Infleqtion UK. The company was recently awarded funding to expand its manufacturing capabilities for quantum-enabled systems. The funding will support the development of a new type of optical atomic clock that far exceeds the accuracy and reliability of current Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)-based systems. Additionally, Infleqtion also announced their successful bids for the Quantum End-to-end Compilation for Combinatorial Optimisation (QECCO) project and Quantum Contextual Artificial Intelligence for Long-range Correlations (Q-CALC) project. Q-CALC will provide the UK with a powerful sovereign capability in quantum machine learning with a clear line-of-sight to improve prediction and decision-making for defence applications. QECCO will focus on using quantum algorithms to solve complex combinatorial optimisation problems in logistics and deliver this crucial quantum software capability to the UK National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC).

IdentiFlight is pleased to announce its entry in South Africa. KAP Limited (KAP) has purchased the first IdentiFlight system in South Africa as part of a research plan for their Renewable Energy Strategy, and contracted Proconics to assist with purchase and installation of the IdentiFlight system.

The first IdentiFlight system in South Africa will be installed as a study unit to develop a better understanding of sensitive species, such as the cape vulture, Verreaux’s eagle, and black harrier.

“At KAP, we are committed to the long-term sustainability of our environment,” stated Gielie Riemers, Group Manager for KAP Energy. “We actively identify ways to reduce our impact and protect natural resources. This IdentiFlight unit will help us better understand the biodiverse environment and allows us to protect the rare bird species found at some of our locations.”

The IdentiFlight system blends artificial intelligence with high-precision optical technology to detect and classify avian species with more than 99 percent accuracy and up to one kilometer away. Proprietary software and neural network technologies process the images to determine 3D position, velocity, trajectory, and sensitive species of interest, all within seconds of detection.

Since 2016, IdentiFlight has been used in wind farms across four continents to detect threats to sensitive species. IdentiFlight can curtail specific turbines that pose a risk to these birds of interest. IdentiFlight systems can be deployed for data collection and monitoring purposes at prospective wind farm sites or operating wind farms alike. Multi-year, independent research has confirmed that IdentiFlight reduces avian fatalities in wind farms by over 85 percent.

“IdentiFlight is elated to work with KAP to learn more about South African species,” said Don Mills, President and Chief Operations Officer of IdentiFlight. “This study unit will collect millions of data points including bird counts, location, and behavior observations. This metadata will provide KAP with the information they need for effective mitigation and future risk minimization of sensitive avian species on their sites.”

Learn more about IdentiFlight by visiting or visit booth C5 at the Windaba Conference and Exhibition at the Cape Town International Conference Centre, CTICC2, 3-5 October 2023 in South Africa.
