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.”
The Fuse TEN architecture is designed to enable joint all-domain command and control, facilitating rapid prototyping with joint networks and “speed to fleet” deployment across multi-domain – air, ground, maritime – platforms.
