Boeing and Liquid Robotics have signed a global, multi-year teaming agreement to develop total integrated solutions for anti-submarine warfare, maritime domain awareness, and other maritime defense applications.

The agreement combines Boeing Defense, Space & Security’s experience developing and fielding multi-layered intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance solutions with Liquid Robotics’ autonomous ocean technology.

“This relationship allows the Boeing-Liquid Robotics team to solve maritime security and surveillance challenges in entirely new and highly effective ways and provides unprecedented capability," said Chris Chadwick, President and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space & Security.

Gary Gysin, President and CEO of Liquid Robotics, said that the teaming “will provide customers an integrated, seafloor-to-space capability for long-duration maritime defense.”

This unit of Boeing is one the of world’s largest defense, space, and security businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world’s largest manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, it is a $33 billion business with 56,000 employees worldwide.

Liquid Robotics is an ocean drone manufacturer with a goal of instrumenting the ocean with fleets of networked, naturally powered robots carrying sensor payloads, making data collection and monitoring easier, safer, and more cost-effective, it says.
