CANES Contracting Strategies for Full Deployment

Pagination or Media Count:
The Navy faces the challenge of having a large number of networks on board ships that are often not well integrated with other systems and are increasingly costly and difficult to maintain and operate. Some Navy ships have as many as 50 separate networks and as many sets of training and support issues. Meanwhile, commercial-sector information technology has been moving toward service-oriented architectures that are cheaper and easier to change and that provide much greater long-term flexibility for users. To address these operability issues and to adopt the best evolving commercial practices, the Navy has developed the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services CANES. CANES represents the Navy s approach to the next generation of networks and computing infrastructure, primarily for shipboard use.
