The intrepid transformer. In just eight months, Washburn took the Compile to Combat in 24 Hours initiative from the pilot phase to full testing on three Navy vessels.

Washburn streamlined procedures for standardized software development, trimmed security accreditation time from 18 months to 24 hours, automated testing, and established the Collaborative Software Armory and Collaborative Staging Environment to deliver cross-functional collaboration among developers, testers, IT operators and installers.
