Fuse was founded with a noble cause of bringing the benefits of commercial human-centered design processes to first responder and military systems engineering. As veterans, Fuse Founders identified that far too much engineering for DoD systems did not connect with the real needs of the users at the tactical edge. Those users, warfighters who are deployed around the world today, face some of the most challenging and life threatening situations anywhere on earth. We entrust our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines to defend our country; they deserve to be equipped with systems that meet their needs, improve their quality of life, and help them accomplish their mission safely and efficiently.
The pace of innovation for network, software, and technology systems continues to accelerate faster than our government acquisition systems, and Fuse is working hard to lead the charge with an agile approach to development and a rapid prototyping ethos for the way we build systems. Fuse is focused on designing and delivering intuitive, quality products for the user.
NOBLE CAUSE | Advancing warfighter capabilities with elegant user-focused communications, networks, and software systems.
We Identify with Our Users
Fuse’s advantage and specialization for warfighter-focused design and engineering comes not only from the experience of our CEO and Board of Directors, but also from the diverse experiences of our team members. Approximately 40 percent of Fuse’s team members are veterans. Some of our team members also have experience serving our country in federal public service. These unique experiences, together with commercial knowledge and processes, help us to realistically and gainfully innovate for our users and meet their special needs and requirements. This combined value of operational experience and design and engineering expertise sets Fuse apart from other design and engineering firms. We work closely with our clients and highly value the ability to bridge the gap between the operator and the engineer with a focus on the user.
Fuse teams utilize design thinking in addition to agile methodology to ensure that we iterate, test, learn, and improve with purpose. For more information about our process, click the button below.
