Fuse Supports the Rosie Network in Annual Giving Program

Around this time each year, Fuse selects one nonprofit that is doing important work in the community and the world – and whose mission is aligned with ours – for our annual holiday giving program.

This holiday season, we are excited to support The Rosie Network! Our employees are invited to donate and Fuse is matching funds raised, to double our contribution.

Headquartered near us in San Diego, The Rosie Network’s mission is to “build stronger military families by developing entrepreneurial programs and support services that empower active-duty, veterans and military spouses to realize the American Dream of small business ownership, increasing financial stability and self-sufficiency of those who have served our country.”

“Our job is to create warfighter-focused communications, networking and computing solutions for battlefield advantage. The Rosie Network is supporting military personnel and their families for small business advantage,” said Fuse CEO Sumner Lee. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to support this incredible organization and the work they do for those who serve this great country.”

From The Rosie Network website:

Inspired by WWII icon Rosie the Riveter and her ‘We Can Do It!’ attitude, The Rosie Network was founded by Military Spouse and Veteran entrepreneurs to EMPOWER, IMPACT, and ADVOCATE on behalf of our nation’s service members and spouses seeking the American Dream of small business ownership. 

We have been training and mentoring active-duty, veterans, and military spouses for 10 YEARS. While our network has grown, our core mission remains the same.

All of our services are provided at no cost. As a 501(c)3, we depend on the generosity of our donors. If you are interested in making a financial gift to our program, contact Leona at LSublett@therosienetwork.org.

Fuse Earns 2023 Military Friendly® Employer Designation, Bronze Distinction

Fuse is proud to announce that we have earned the 2023 Military Friendly® Employer designation, with a “Bronze” rank. Military Friendly Employer companies are committed to creating sustainable economic benefits to the military community, including providing meaningful career paths, community outreach, brand enthusiasm, and enduring partnerships with and for military veterans. Recognizing exceptional military/veteran programs, the Bronze distinction is bestowed on employers who scored within 30% of the 10th best Employer in their category; in this case, the under $500 million category.

“Fuse was founded by military veterans with the noble cause of bringing the benefits of commercial human-centered design processes to military systems engineering,” said Fuse CEO and former naval aviator, Sumner Lee. “Our veteran employees have always been an important part of our culture. We are thrilled to be recognized for our commitment to the military community and our success in building a military-friendly team and company.”

More than 40% of the Fuse workforce have served in the military and 16% of our employees are disabled veterans. Military experience and skillsets are tremendous assets here, as we design and build mission-critical systems that support the warfighter.

“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers® designation elevate the standard for military programs globally; they have invested in substantive programs that promote positive outcomes for service members, military spouses and veterans within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly®. “For these employers, hiring military is more than just the right thing to do; it’s a standard that makes good business sense.”

More than 1,000 companies participated in the 2023 Military Friendly® survey. Methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by VIQTORY, with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the military recruitment community. Final ratings were based on survey responses, public data sources and an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.

Fuse will be showcased as a 2023 Military Friendly® Employer in the December issue of G.I. Jobs®magazine and on MilitaryFriendly.com.

Fuse Conducts Successful Live-Flight Demo of Tactical Edge Networking Capability for the Office of Naval Research

Fuse conducted another successful live-flight demonstration of its Tactical Edge Networking capability! The October Technical Concept Experiment (TEC) was hosted by the Office of Naval Research. In the joint multi-domain exercise, which replicated expeditionary operations in a contested littoral environment, Fuse enabled the interconnecting of distributed nodes and provided persistent sea-to-shore networked communications via text, voice and live video feeds.

“Today’s warfighters are routinely operating in multi-domain joint operational environments that rely on dependable and secure connections and communications,” said Rebecca Unetic, Director of Strategy at Fuse. “Fuse capabilities are built for operational relevance and this Navy-Marine Corps exercise further demonstrates the readiness and applicability of our products and technologies on board ships and aircraft today.”

Throughout the multi-day exercise, held along Camp Pendleton’s Red Beach training area in California, Fuse engineers and technical personnel effectively integrated user data from various technologies into the overall event network architecture. The team provided data linkages over disparate mesh and CDL networks in a highly terrain-challenged environment; securely connected beyond-line-of-sight command posts and tactical units; extended the range of communications to enable joint amphibious operations and naval mine countermeasures; and facilitated text and live video across the multi-domain, multi-link network with cyber-secure IP and TDL gateways. 

As with previous Navy-Marine Corps exercises, the Fuse TEN architecture demonstrated persistent, secure and resilient networked communications from sea to shore in a constructive command and control/denied and degraded environment. The TEN architecture is designed to accelerate the sensor-decider-shooter cycle and enhance data-informed decision-making critical in the modern battlespace, enabling the U.S. Defense Department’s JADC2 initiative. It also facilitates rapid prototyping with joint networks and “speed to fleet” deployment across multi-domain platforms.

Fuse Conducts Live-Flight Demonstration of Tactical Edge Networking Capability During Joint Marine Corps/Navy Exercise

Fuse today announced it conducted a successful live-flight demonstration of its Tactical Edge Networking capability in support of the U.S. Marine Corps’ I Marine Expeditionary Force and the U.S. Navy’s Third Fleet. The joint multi-domain exercise enabled the interconnecting of multiple distributed nodes and command posts replicating expeditionary advanced base operations.

Throughout the day-long exercise at Camp Pendleton in California, Fuse provided networked text, voice communications and live video across the distributed network to the I MEF and Third Fleet. The company demonstrated resilient, multi-domain networking in a notional, SATCOM-denied environment; low probability of intercept/low probability of detection discovery for Bandwidth Efficient Common Data Link (BE-CDL) over out-of-band control planes; directional mesh networking; and multi-link crossbanding.

In support of the exercise, Fuse utilized three of its key products: Tactical Technologies Toolset, a remote network monitoring and management solution for multi-domain operations; CORE®, a flexible and small, weight and power networking solution that connects aircraft, ground vehicles and ships with ground operations across secure and unclassified networks; and the DARE Airborne Networking Gateway, which extends network connectivity for airborne and ground-based warfighters in a wing-mounted pod airframe.

“Our nation’s warfighters require reliable, secured communications across multiple domains to outpace the
adversary’s decision-making,” said
Sumner Lee, CEO of Fuse. “Our team has developed the capability to enhance shared awareness between distributed, expeditionary nodes and accelerate the sensor-shooter cycle. We’re grateful for the opportunity to support our Navy-Marine Corps team and look forward to supporting future joint exercises with our proven technologies.”
