"I'm delighted to be able to support Liquid Robotics,” said Sir George Zambellas. “This responsibility will hit the sweet spot for me, combining deceptively advanced technology with extraordinary development potential, in the challenging underwater domain but with access to land, air and space, in a product range with global reach and global relevance - run by a small committed team."

A champion of technological innovation, and a pioneer of unmanned systems in maritime operations, Sir George has led the exploitation of autonomous systems for naval operations. As the First Sea Lord, he was the force behind Unmanned Warrior 2016, the first multi-national exercise of a real-life, large-scale interoperability of unmanned and autonomous systems. Lauded as ground breaking, it was during this exercise where Boeing and Liquid Robotics demonstrated the first time that a network of persistent USVs were able to detect, track and report a live submarine in a naval demonstration.

“We are honored to be welcoming Sir George Zambellas to our Strategic Advisory Board,” said Gary Gysin, President & CEO, Liquid Robotics. “We’ve admired Sir George’s leadership in challenging the world’s navies to think differently, to use advanced technologies, and unmanned systems to advance naval superiority. His expertise will be invaluable as we work towards creating a seafloor to space network to monitor our ocean environment and its threats.”

Sir George Zambellas has a highly distinguished naval career that concluded in April 2016 after a three-year appointment as Britain’s First Sea Lord. During this time he served in the UK Amphibious Force, the UK Maritime Force, NATO 4-star Maritime Command and Fleet Command and UK Ministry of Defence positions. As captain of HMSChathamhe was deployed as part of Operation Palliser to Sierra Leone, earning the Distinguished Service Cross.

This appointment has been referred to the Office of the Advisory Committee on Business appointments in the UK and is being made in accordance with the Committee’s advice.
