QLM’s wealth of experience, expertise and talent continues to expand following our successful seed round of funding with the arrival of Dr Andrew Weld, who has joined the team as the Head of Research & Development.
QLM is delighted to welcome John Bennett to the team as he joins as Head of Electronics.
The development of QLM’s manufacturing offering is increasingly important as we refine the design of our equipment to accommodate mass-market industrial scalability. Bringing electronics design in-house with a dedicated expert is a crucial step towards long-term self-sustainability, making it an excellent time for John to join the team and help drive the commercial design of the product forwards.
John obtained his BEng in Electronic Engineering at Cardiff, before starting his career in the defence industry, developing hardware platforms for key management and secure communications systems. He then moved to a company developing optical fibre based acoustic sensing equipment for applications within the oil and gas, security and transport sectors, where he first met QLM’s CTO, Xiao Ai. Most recently, he has worked in the fire industry leading a multidisciplinary team developing certified alarm devices, detectors and systems for high volume manufacture. John will be collaborating with our Head of Manufacturing, Mark Walker, and Head of Engineering, Dr. Alex Dunning, as well as our external manufacturing partners and our R&D teams.
John said, “I’m very excited to have the opportunity to join QLM and be part of a talented team working on such an innovative new product. The state of the art technology is a real draw for me, especially as it helps to address such an important real-world issue as emissions.”
And in other news…
Inzpire Limited has been selected as the trials partner of choice for QLM Technology’s RPAS-mounted methane detection and measurement sensor.
Inzpire’s Technical and Strategic Services Division will work with QLM Technology (QLM) to assess the ability of its new Light Detection and Imaging (Lidar) camera to detect and quantify methane emissions when mounted on an RPAS.
QLM’s team grows on both the technical and commercial sides as part of post-Seed expansion.
