Max Perez, the company’s general manager for QRaaS, will lead his respective division in efforts to study, prototype and provide consulting on a variety of quantum applications such as networking, radio frequency receivers and high-precision clocks.

Lastly, the ColdAtom Technologies division will produce glass vacuum cells, magneto optical traps and other quantum devices to support supply chains. Sandi Mays, acting general manager at ColdQuanta, will lead this division.
