Tomahawk Robotics Appoints Former Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy to Board Of Directors

McCarthy will bring his Army knowledge and DOD acquisition expertise to further efforts to address the need for next generation unmanned systems.

Tomahawk Robotics, the leading innovator of common control solutions, is pleased to announce that former Secretary of the Army Ryan D. McCarthy has been appointed to its Board of Directors.

“Tomahawk’s Kinesis enables the efficient deployment and use of unmanned systems by front line troops,” said McCarthy.

Mr. McCarthy was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as Secretary of the Army, and he previously served as the special assistant to the 22nd Secretary of Defense Robert Gates under Presidents Bush and Obama. Prior to this, he was the special assistant to the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics. Mr. McCarthy also proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1997 to 2002 and was involved in combat operations in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom with the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Ryan will bring his tremendous Army knowledge and DOD acquisition expertise to the Tomahawk Robotics team to further their efforts to address the need for next generation unmanned systems in the U.S. Military. “I was deeply involved in assessing technologies across the Army acquisition portfolio over the last 20 years, and Tomahawk’s universal command and control software will enable the efficient deployment and use of unmanned systems by front line troops.  These technologies are key to the effectiveness of dismounted troops on tomorrow’s battlefield,” said Mr. McCarthy.

“Ryan was truly impressed by Tomahawk Robotics’ technology and its ability to efficiently control a range of unmanned systems already in use by the U.S. Army. Tomahawk Robotics is deploying their products with some of the most sophisticated users of unmanned systems today, and we are pleased that Ryan will be joining our board and ultimately help us position for significant programs with the U.S. Army,” said Wes Blackwell of Scout Ventures.

In addition to Ryan joining the board, Tomahawk Robotics has recently announced the completion of a $10M Series A financing round led by Scout Ventures that included notable investments from Kensington Capital Partners, Topmark Partners and Naples Technology Ventures. Funds will support further technology enhancements and expansion of the enterprise.
