U.S. Navy, Northrop Grumman complete installation of next-generation tactical afloat network for guided-missile destroyer

SAN DIEGO - The U.S. Navy and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) have successfully installed Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES) on the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell.

The installation was completed during the ship's approximate five-month scheduled maintenance at U.S. Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Japan. Prior to installation, Northrop Grumman produced, integrated and tested the CANES system and delivered it for acceptance to the Tactical Networks Program Office, Program Executive Office of Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I). During installation, Northrop Grumman assisted with the system's application integration and operational checkout.

"We have system 'light off.' McCampbell is underway and CANES is performing well with sailors using email, video and secure voice capabilities," said Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager, defense systems division, Northrop Grumman Information Systems. "We're pleased to be getting excellent feedback for the quality of our work and the improved C4I services provided by CANES."

Northrop Grumman has delivered 11 CANES systems to the Navy with 10 for guided-missile destroyers and one for a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. CANES installation aboard the destroyer USS Milius is progressing as part of the ship's extended drydock availability scheduled to last approximately 11 months.

Consolidation through CANES will eliminate many legacy standalone shipboard networks and provide a common computing environment for dozens of C4I applications. Northrop Grumman applies 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.
