Fuse Joined Consortium Partners to Demo Target Recognition Capabilities at USSOCOM TE 23-2

“As conflict becomes increasingly waged through the cyber domain, the ability to utilize high-quality data becomes paramount in shortening the decision-making cycle,” said Sumner Lee, CEO of Fuse. “It was an honor to participate in TE 23-2, supporting USSOCOM’s search for next-gen technologies to deliver strategic advantages to our special operation forces.”

Team SIRENS SONG, which includes Dynamic Systems Inc., Rebellion DefensePhelps2020, Sensepoint-ai (formerly Blender Logic) and Fuse, showcased its solution to advance target recognition, network the operational environment and accelerate data-informed decision-making for U.S. joint and special operators. The consortium is developing a solution to accelerate target detection, classification, tracking and dynamic task management across a heterogeneous community of platforms (manned and unmanned) and sensors. These technologies will heighten a warfighter’s ability to sense, make sense of the operational environment and act – all on a single platform, with the potential to extend that capability to a community of manned and unmanned platforms.

“Our team’s goal is to provide the warfighter greater awareness, faster, to enable better and more fluid decision-making,” said Rob Buzby, Team SIRENS SONG lead and account manager at Dynamic Systems Inc.

At TE 23-2, Fuse detailed the company’s tactical edge networking architecture and CORE® virtualized network system functionality. It also displayed its Tactical Technologies Toolset remote network monitoring and management product and utilized virtual network test bed capability to demonstrate data flows across the network.

Federal News Network Publishes Virtual Network Test Bed Article from Fuse’s Jason Coe

When defense and industry collaborate to develop tactical edge networking and communications innovations, hardware, software and system advancements typically take priority over integrations. 

“Too often, just when the team believes that each of the innovations are ready to test, the ‘last mile’ of network integrations and critically important application flows don’t work as intended, and they’re challenging and time-consuming to resolve.”

That insight comes from Fuse’s Systems Architect, Jason Coe, in his Federal News Network article. 

In “Change the Defense innovation game: Use a virtual network test bed from day one,” Coe describes a development process that uses a virtual network test bed (VNTB). Cross-functional defense teams are starting to use a VNTB to integrate suites of commercial off-the-shelf hardware and open-source technologies to validate and experiment with the combined network configurations early in the process. 

To learn about introducing VNTBs into the development process through a “crawl, walk, run, sprint … then fly!” approach, read the full article via Federal News Network

Fuse Integration and Raytheon Technologies Receive DoD Nunn-Perry Award for Mentor-Protégé Excellence

Fuse, with Raytheon Technologies, is pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of Defense has recognized the companies with a prestigious 2022 Nunn-Perry Award for excellence in the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program.

Nunn-Perry Award recipients exhibit “exemplary protégé growth and developments” under their respective teaming agreements. In 2022, this Mentor-Protégé agreement helped fuel Fuse’s 43% revenue and workforce acceleration – a reflection of key defense contract awards and production ramp up of the company’s warfighter-focused communications and networking solutions. 

“Supporting the DoD’s mission to deliver critical capabilities to the warfighter is a top priority at Raytheon Technologies,” said Lionel Boisvert, Deputy Director, Advanced Technology Sensors at Raytheon Missiles & Defense. “The Mentor-Protégé program is a highly effective way to expand the supply chain and foster the development of technical capabilities.”

Established in 1990, the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program assists DoD prime contractors in meeting their Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) subcontracting goals. The Program has since expanded, providing developmental assistance to Women-Owned Small Businesses, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses and others.

The Program celebrated this year’s winners and their accomplishments on March 30, 2023 at the 2023 Mentor-Protégé Summit in Orlando, Florida.
