Fuse Paper Accepted for MILCOM 2019

(August 9, 2019) – Fuse is excited that a paper written by our Director of Engineering, Dell Kronewitter, and software engineer, Kenneth Oliphant, has been accepted for the proceedings of the MILCOM 2019 Track 5 – Big Data and Machine Learning. Dell will also present the paper, “A Cognitive [Machine Learning] Agent for Airborne Networking,” at MILCOM Track 5.

Their research presents a deep reinforcement learning architecture specifically designed to improve wireless network performance over a heterogeneous airborne wireless network consisting of multiple waveforms, antennas, platforms, link protocols, frequencies, spatial transmission, and codes. Training and validation of the agent is accomplished using the Fuse-developed Tactical Airborne Network Simulator (TANS) based on EMANE, a framework for real-time modeling of mobile network systems developed by the Naval Research Laboratory.

This year, MILCOM—short for a conference about “military communications”—will be held in Norfolk, Virginia, in mid-November. This conference brings together military and government leaders with industry professionals. MILCOM 2019 is sponsored by AFCEA International and IEEE Communications Society and is expected to focus on “Defining Multi-Domain Command and Control.”

Stay tuned for more information about Fuse at MILCOM 2019 as the conference draws nearer!

Additive Manufacturing Accelerates Prototyping

Fuse used its native 3D printing capability to rapidly prototype and solve a pop-up hardware issue. This issue was identified during local flight-testing of an integrated communications pod. The Fuse hardware team designed and printed cable backshells to fix a connector orientation issue at the last minute of flight testing. The quick-thinking and skilled engineering of the team ensured
