Fuse Shifts Two Roles to Drive Common Architecture Across Next-Gen Warfighter Products

As part of its shift to a product-based approach to serving federal defense customers, Fuse today announced the repositioning of two engineering leaders to drive the development of a common architecture across the company’s suite of next-gen warfighter products. Moving Jason Coe to the technical systems architect role and Bryan Ikei to the cybersecurity architect role aligns with the company’s commitment to delivering the best possible products for the warfighter.

“Fuse’s maturation from our program to product focus has meant a longer-term vision in how we can enhance warfighter capabilities and provide best-in-class solutions for our nation’s most critical needs,” said Sumner Lee, Fuse CEO. “With this strategic vision in mind and an engineering focus at the core of what we do at Fuse, Jason and Bryan will drive and develop the innovative solutions Fuse incorporates into our products.”

The lead architects both report to Dell Kronewitter, the company’s newly appointed director of technology.

  • Jason Coe, technical systems architect, leads the development and production of the company’s airborne networking devices and secure travel kits. Coe joined Fuse in 2014 as a network engineer and previously worked for more than 20 years in IT leadership roles. He holds a Masters of Aeronautical Science, Aviation Management, Space Studies as well as an M.S. in Information Systems (MISS) and a B.S. in Aeronautical Science.
  • Bryan Ikei, cybersecurity architect, is responsible for ensuring Fuse products meet the rigorous cybersecurity requirements for defense operational environments. He joined Fuse earlier this year as a security engineer. Ikei is a cybersecurity expert with 20 years of broad experience in computer network and security concepts to engineering innovative approaches and solving computer security challenges. He previously served in the U.S. Army and Hawaii Air National Guard. He holds an M.S. in Computer Science, B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. in Mathematics.

“Jason and Bryan’s experience and proven engineering and development capabilities at Fuse made them the logical choice to help direct key functions of Fuse’s product strategy and capabilities moving forward to tackle our client’s most pressing and challenging needs,” said Kronewitter.
