Northrop has successfully completed the preliminary design review (PDR) of the US Navy’s consolidated afloat networks and enterprise services (CANES) programme.

The CANES programme aims to provide streamlined and updated shipboard network systems for improved interoperability and affordability across the fleet.

The system also offers cost and performance improvements including a modernised command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) architecture with increased security, and reduced development, deployment and lifecycle costs.

The company used MOSA-C, a strategic business and engineering process to verify plug-and-play modularity, and demonstrated the ability of multiple COTS and open source products to meet current and future requirements of CANES.
