Fuse is investing in our nation’s sailors and the Maritime Domain by working directly with active-duty U.S. Navy experts in the development of advanced technologies. Warfighter workshops build a working relationship between users (warfighters), experts, and stakeholders and the Fuse engineering and design team. This close partnership and collaboration enables Fuse engineers to design and develop products and capabilities applicable to our Navy’s requirements for mission success. Throughout the past month Fuse engaged a host of end users of our Tactical Technologies Toolset (T3) product to improve functionality and add features and capabilities requested by the user.
The T3 team conducted workshops with system experts, product owners, and uniformed warfighters to immediately prototype the requested modifications to the Graphic User Interface and add enhanced capability to the system. Fuse overcame COVID induced hurdles and conduct these workshops over Microsoft Teams, using innovative digital whiteboard and workflow products to bridge the digital divide. The only way to accelerate deployment of game-changing capabilities to the fleet is to work closely with the warfighter, and that is where our team is focused.
