FishEye Celebrates

Celebrate 2020

Ben C. and Mark H. celebrate holidays at the Maynard office.

 

To celebrate Christmas the Maynard office held a competitive, though not highly skilled, paper airplane throwing contest. Cheating was strongly encouraged. Walking away each with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon were Ben C. and Mark H. shown here with their winning aircraft. Masks were worn, social distancing observed and the middle seat was left open on all flights.

  • The Software Sustainment team successfully completed a formal final qualification testing (FQT) for customer signoff at FishEye’s Maynard’s software sustainment and rehost lab. This is a great milestone for the Maynard sustainment team. Thanks to great work from Ben, Peter, Joyce, Griff, Paul, and Chris.AFWERX
  • We are midstream on the “Accelerated Analysis to Real-Time (AART)” project integrating the FishEye Real-Time Platform to cut analysis time from days to real-time. The project, funded by the Air Force’s AFWERX innovation group, connects FishEye’s product into a complex radar running on IBM AIX servers to improve sustainment productivity.
  • FishEye was awarded an extension for the Intelligent Dynamic Data Logging (IDDL) project. We have a major prime subcontracted to FishEye to test FishEye Real-Time Platform with the prime’s simulators. The project team has demonstrated real-time data curation shrinking data size 95% to increase simulation run production.
  • Started work for the Department of Transportation software maintenance team to upgrade their system monitoring. The upgrade provides 24:7 monitoring of all-electronic toll system components and generates automatic repair tickets.
  • Continuing development of Prime Power Unit software upgrade. The system monitors mission critical power generation systems includes user interface improvements and higher fidelity data sampling using the FishEye Real-Time Platform. The upgrade includes a new automated hard-ware-in-the-loop (HWIL) test system to rapidly perform automated tests for more robust testing and reduced testing costs during maintenance and upgrades.
  • ​We are near to completing integrating the radar simulator that supports a radar testing effort in a system integration lab. The system provides radar front-end hardware-in-the-loop for lab testing of radar back-end software. The simulator improves testing capabilities before deployment and during sustainment.
  • We are off and running on the 2021 product roadmap efforts to expand Machine learning, Data Lake, and Cloud computing capabilities for FishEye Real-Time Platform product.

News Flash: Bill Cracks a Smile in 2021

Bill Kenny, CFO

FishEye Upgrades Finance System for 2021

For the first time in history, Bill Kenny, legendary FishEye CFO cracked a smile. He is giddy about FishEye’s new Finance System. Rumor has it, Bill has been seen dancing in the office singing Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer”. He can’t stop talking about all the extended DCAA compliant capabilities FishEye will have in 2021.

Thanks to Dan S. for leading the research and procurement process.

 

 

 

Project Management Professional Certification

Shannon L.Shannon successfully passed the exam for Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. PMP is the most globally recognized credential in project management across many industries. These sorts of qualifications will help FishEye pursue prime and larger contracts with international partners, stringent controls and process requirements.

Beyond this, as FishEye continues to grow, we’re looking at ways to work more efficiently across projects. This includes our embrace of Agile, but we can also benefit from more traditional or hybrid project management concepts, most notably Earned Value Management (EVM). Agile accommodates a dynamic workflow, while EVM communicates the big picture of project status to decision-makers.

For anyone interested in more information about PMP Certification, you can take a look at the PMI website.

Shannon “Queen of Everything” is my usual moniker. But for the newsletter I guess I can go with Project Manager.
