Malcolm Turnbull will help Advanced Navigation continue its global expansion.

Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has been appointed director on the board of Advanced Navigation, as the company looks to accelerate its expansion across global markets.

“Advanced Navigation demonstrates how innovative Australian science and engineering can develop world’s best autonomous navigation technology, so important as adversaries increasingly challenge wireless connectivity,” said Turnbull.

“I know from my direct experience how our friends and allies trust Australian technology and look forward to helping the team accelerate the global deployment and adoption of the Advanced Navigation’s products.”

“We’re very pleased to welcome Malcolm Turnbull to the Advanced Navigation board” said Chris Shaw, CEO of Advanced Navigation.

“As we continue to expand our business into more markets Mr Turnbull’s perspective gained from his extensive and impressive career will be a guiding hand for our future endeavours”.

Advanced Navigation began in Sydney in 2012 when engineers Xavier Orr and Chris Shaw commercialised their thesis research into AI neural network-based inertial navigation.

The company’s portfolio of navigation offerings covers a wide range of fields such as underwater acoustics, GPS, radio frequency systems, sensors and robotics.

Advanced Navigation is headquartered in Sydney and it has a research facility in Perth. Its global sales headquarters is in San Diego CA, supported by a sales office in London.
