CNO ADM John Richardson is on song when he explains how to achieve the Future Fleet: "The short answer is that we must simultaneously build and innovate." (The Future Navy, May 17,2017). To AVATAR Partners, as developers of Fleet Training Systems, our approach to "build and innovate" is not easy but produces better and more flexible solutions in the long run. The process to achieve this requires constant communication with the Fleet during all stages of development, revolutionary innovation, agility that is built on solid principles, and product designed for innovation and iterative change. Doing so produces the best possible product to enable the US Navy to keep up with exponential threats, and outpace the enemy.
