Northrop Grumman has concluded the design, development, and limited deployment phase of the consolidated afloat networks and enterprise services (CANES) programme for the US Navy.

CANES, a programmatic and technical consolidation of five legacy shipboard network programmes, is designed to provide common infrastructure for command, control, intelligence and logistics applications.

The solution will be equipped on ships, submarines, and land sites.

The company has completed installations on several aircraft carriers and cruisers and on multiple destroyers, and is currently working on carriers, an amphibious assault ship, landing dock ships, cruisers and destroyers.

"We are honoured and proud to contribute significantly to this critical component of the navy’s modernisation plan."

According to Northrop Grumman, CANES solution delivers considerable cost and performance enhancements compared to existing shipboard networks, including a cyber-hardened, flexible architecture to deliver mission-critical C4I applications.

Northrop Grumman Information Systems command and control division vice-president and general manager Sam Abbate said: "We are honoured and proud to contribute significantly to this critical component of the navy’s modernisation plan.
