Northrop Grumman to bid on CANES Navy tactical afloat network full deployment contract

Northrop Grumman announced June 3 that it will submit a bid for the U.S. Navy Consolidated Afloat Network and Enterprise Services (CANES) full deployment contract.

“The CANES program is critical to modernizing the Navy afloat network for enhanced security, affordability and delivering relevant capabilities to the warfighter,” said Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems division of Northrop Grumman Information Systems. “With our experience on the development and limited deployment phase, we and our team members are confident we will offer a solution to best achieve the Navy’s mission and objectives.”

Twyman added, “We stand ready to produce and help accelerate the delivery of CANES to the fleet.”

Northrop Grumman’s CANES solution offers considerable cost and performance improvements over existing shipboard networks including a modernized C4I architecture with increased security and reduced development, deployment and life cycle costs.

Consolidation through CANES will eliminate many legacy standalone shipboard networks and provide a common computing environment for dozens of C4I applications. Northrop Grumman uses its Modular Open Systems Approach-Competitive™ (MOSA-C™) strategic business and engineering process to enable continuous competition on the program, thereby driving down life cycle costs. MOSA-C™ ensures vendor-neutral, enduring solutions that improve interoperability and lower the total cost of ownership.
