Meet Bill Kenny, Chief Financial Officer

 

That’s actually a picture of Bill working in his yard. He lives in a little red house in the background. Every spring the snapping turtles lay a bunch of eggs in his pond. Bill and his friends use that pond to race motorized model beavers. The eggs interfere with the slapping motion of the beaver tails so Bill has to go out with his metal stick and knock all the eggs out of the way. He’s actually turned this chore into its own form of entertainment by trying to hit the eggs into a little hole that he digs in his lawn. He calls this game “I hate f&%$@#* beavers!”

Meet Bill P.

 

Play the video of Bill’s colorful harvest. It will make you “Oh So Hungry”! Some of his entries into the Topsfield Fair this year earned some well-deserved ribbons and awards.

Bilbo Day

 

Did you know, Bill P. is the founder of Bilbo day? Bilbo day is celebrated every December and is one of FishEyes’ official holidays.

Chateau at Dudley Pond

Chateau at Dudley Pond

 

Technically Bilbo Day is my birthday which is December 23rd. When we were young and still working for TRW we use to go out on the 23rd. But once we got older and married with kids it was too difficult to go out and celebrate two days before Christmas. So Bill Kenny defined Bilbo day in the Fisheye Handbook as the last working day before the Christmas Shutdown. But even then it was difficult to plan a date in December. So when December 1st comes around we start sending emails around to determine what day is good for everyone. Usually, a date between the 16th and 21st of December is chosen. The traditional venue for Bilbo Day has been a dive bar near the Raytheon Plant in Wayland Ma called the Chateau at Dudley Pond. But when Raytheon Wayland closed down in 1996, many people started working at Raytheon Bedford and Tewksbury and eventually Woburn, it became difficult to go to the Chateau. But the last 3 years we have celebrated Bilbo Day at the Chateau. So that’s Bilbo Day in a nutshell. By Bill P.

 

 

 


 

Meet Jacob A.

 

 

Title: Deputy Project Manager

Location: Huntsville, AL

Programs: UEWR/AN-TPY-2 HWIL. We are testing software updates for the systems that will be
fielded in the near future.

I have no idea what I’m doing day to day, I just do what random people higher up the food chain tells me to do. It has worked thus far, or people are scared I’ll squish them.

I have a wife and two daughters and a foster son. To offset the estrogen I’m also a blacksmith and make sharp pointy things and things to make the sharp pointy things.

 


 

Meet Emre T.

 

 

Joined FishEye in 2015

Location: Marlborough, MA

– Fortunate to leverage a broad range of skills in radar projects, from hands-on real-time software development and system analysis to leadership, adopting a number of software development methodologies, including agile. Currently contributing to the AMDR Program and related product line projects.

– Asked to contribute as a Site Manager in September 2017.

– Based on the last two FishEye holiday parties, realized that I have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to picking the appropriate pair of pants that contains a friendly holiday theme.

– Love hiking, motorcycle riding, scuba diving and watching documentaries.

– Particularly enjoy reading thrillers which combine fact and fiction, such as Steve Berry and Dan Brown.

 


 

Meet Ted Selig

 

 

Ted S. Video

 

Title: Director & COO

 

Q. Where do you work?

A. Mostly in the Maynard office but I travel around the US seeking new business opportunities for FishEye and occasionally (worldwide) supporting project work.

 

Q. What you are working on?

A. Day to day my work is focused in three areas:

1 – Business Development with FishEye prospects and clients to discover how FishEye might solve their challenges

2 – Product Development with customers and the FishEye product team to define, build, and deliver software products that solve problems

3 – Operations with FishEye team members building processes and systems improving FishEye as a company

I am really excited about our recent work with machine-learning time-series prediction. I enjoy working with Bill S., Austin H., and others using machine learning to predict trends from streams of time-ordered data. FishEye has decades of experience working with time series data from all the embedded real-time systems we develop and support. It is neat to combine that experience along with the latest parallel processing technology (GPUs) to predict trends in a new way.

 

Q. Personal?

A. I live together with my wife Kim, son Adam (14), dog Lyle (35 dog years), and MIL. I think my MIL is trying to kill me with comfort food. I’m trying to combat her efforts with exercise. Skiing in Sugarbush, VT, and road and mountain biking around New England.

FishEye participates at Raytheon Industry Day Washington DC

 

In March, Ted Selig, COO FishEye Software attended the Raytheon Industry Day to share with legislators why it is important to fund AMDR radars for the U.S. Navy. Ted dug a tie out of his closet to go “storm the hill” as they say. Bob usually attends this annual event but had other commitments. The two-day event was coordinated by Raytheon and involved a one-day briefing by Raytheon and some guest speakers on the programs and related budgetary legislation. Raytheon is organizing a campaign to support for budget to keep funding in the budget to install AMDR radars on two ships scheduled to go into dry-dock for rehabilitation. If the budget is not approved these ships will go back to sea without the latest radars and will probably never have a chance to get the radar in it’s remaining 20-year life span. Ted joined a group of several Massachusetts companies meeting with legislators and aids from districts throughout Massachusetts.

 

FishEye is a five-time award winner of the Raytheon IDS Supplier Excellence Award.
