Joe D., Site Manager, Tewksbury, MA

 

Though I am apparently still the Tewks site manager, I would like some mention of Emily Y.’s move from the Woburn to the software product line in Marlborough.

“Emily recently completed a very successful tenure on the Post Processing (PPMP) software team in Woburn where she garnered an impressive amount of knowledge. This knowledge will virtually guarantee her success on Team Charlie (AAW Mission/Resource Mgmt) of the Radar Software Product Line (RSPL). She will bring her impressive skills to a team that is very skilled and impressive in its own rite – she’ll fit right in. We wish her the best. Go get’em Emily!”

Emily has recently moved to Tewksbury with her team.

Emre T., Site Manager, Marlborough, MA

 

Adding to Joe’s email.

Emily will be joining Team Charlie. Things are a little bit up in the air nowadays with the Product Line with all the craziness going on, but we were able to get her into the Product Line here in Marlborough. Everyone she worked with had good things to say about her, so her accomplishments spoke for itself.

Quick note. She will be working in Marlborough temporarily. She will ultimately be transitioning to Tewksbury once more office space is available and Team Charlie is able to reorganize their staff accordingly.

Erik S., Site Manager, Woburn, MA

 

Two big events for Raytheon, which might provide future work for us, are listed below.

  • Raytheon Intelligence and Space contract award to help develop the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). RI&S will be supported by Raytheon Missiles & Defense (RMD). This is a five-year IDIQ leading toward the development of a new command and control network.
  • Raytheon TPY/THAAD contract. The article says this contract for seven TPY2 radars is PART of a foreign military sale to KSA. No word on what other parts may be awarded in the future. 

People working on tasks in other programs in Woburn continue to work as necessary in the labs, or from home when possible. No program end/exit dates are imminent.

 

John G. has moved from QEWR Software to support the Cobra King Sustainment in Maynard.

FishEye recruits the best engineers at UMass Career Fair

Lily Z. (left) and Lina W. (right) recruits the best engineers at University of Massachusetts Career Fair

 

With FishEye’s leadership ties to Umass Amherst, FishEye recruits annually at the Career Blast Campus-Wide Fair looking for the best engineers to join our team! The career fair features representatives from over 100 companies offering internships and full-time employment. Earlier this year, Lina W. spearheaded FishEye’s presence at the event by setting up and organizing the entire college hire recruitment process.

As a result of our college hire initiative we had two interns working this summer at FishEye. We also had a high school intern helping to explore technology during the summer. Casey is studying computer engineering and is a returning intern from 2019 and has been prototyping a new streaming data routing microservice for use with AI and for streaming data visualization.

Alex is working on a Masters program and studying software engineering. Alex has been helping to prototype some time series machine learning capabilities. Both Casey and Alex are part of an integrated software team practicing Agile development to Advance RTTK’s Command and Control GUI, Real-Time Visualization, and Machine Learning time-series prediction.

Max W. is going into his senior year at Winchester High School and is working on a STEM certificate. Max has been using linux and GPUs to experiment with real-time object recognition from within video streams.

We appreciate all the great contributions and hard work this summer and wish them well on their studies.

FishEye Refines Software Development Process

 

In an effort to continuously improve our products and practices, FishEye is refining our software development process. Joe D., Tewksbury Site Manager and Advanced Certified ScrumMaster is developing a training regime covering FishEye’s Agile process. The training includes a series of tutorials so that team members can quickly understand the process and jump into the development project’s rhythm.

The Agile Toolkit Development​ Summarized by 7 principles:​

  1. Eliminate waste
  2. Amplify learning
  3. Decide as late as possible
  4. Deliver as fast as possible
  5. Empower the team
  6. Build in integrity
  7. See the whole

 

~ Only when these principles are implemented together, with a healthy dose of common sense, is there a basis for success.​
