Through its annual awards program, AFCEA International recognizes the outstanding contributions of Bob Chisholm, CEO, FishEye Software, Inc., for his incomparable support of the Lexington-Concord Chapter, commitment to strengthening AFCEA goals, and extraordinary Small Business service to the nation and his community.

Since FishEye’s inception in 1997, Bob has shown a selfless commitment to the furtherance of AFCEA’s goals.  He has invested time and financial resources to a wide variety of Chapter events.  Over the last several years Bob has been instrumental in perpetuating our New Horizons Symposium as a “must-attend” event.  As a member of a FishEye-centric bluegrass band he has volunteered and performed at the welcome reception, setting a tone of excitement and anticipation for the remainder of the symposium. This year, his band was scheduled to play at the symposium’s main evening event. A record-setting snowstorm prevented the musicians from getting to the hotel, yet Bob performed solo for conference participants!

Bob serves as a member of the AFCEA Lexington-Concord Chapter Board, and is active in the AFCEA Fellowship Awards and Golf committees.  He is a mainstay as a co-chair of each of our signature golf tournaments. This year he was active in AFCEA’s Fellowship Program, serving on the committee to select and award top STEM-oriented students internship positions at local companies.  

The above are but examples of almost two decades of his strong commitment and support to our Chapter and AFCEA.

Additionally, Bob epitomizes community commitment.  He successfully advocated for the funding of a major renovation to the Maynard, MA Public Library.  Through financial support and company-wide volunteerism, Bob and FishEye provided the impetus to create the Holliston High School Robotics Club.  For more than a decade, this club has provoked and sustained vital student interest in STEM.

Bob Chisholm has been the true visionary and dynamic force behind FishEye.  He has spearheaded his company’s strategic direction to deliver innovative, value-added software and analytic services to support a wide range of federal agencies including the Department of Defense, FAA, Homeland Security, and the Intelligence Community.

Additionally, under his direction, the company has focused on using innovation to bring value to the AFCEA community. Bob is an active strategist in technology innovation, collaborating in a partnership with the Air Force, Navy, and prime contractors. FishEye’s RTTK Real-Time Platform developed in collaboration with the Navy unlocks real-time machine data and enables real-time analysis to simplify and understand complex systems.  FishEye’s Virtual Radar Simulator (VREX) developed in collaboration with the Air Force employs off-the-shelf massive parallel computing to provide cost saving and real-time high fidelity radar simulation in the lab. Extraordinary achievements such as these barely scratch the surface of his small business pioneering spirit, stalwart leadership, and notable small business contributions to enrich our national security.
