British manufacturer of aircraft, missiles, avionics, naval vessels, and other aerospace and defense products. BAE Systems was formed (1999) from the merger of British Aerospace (BAe) with Marconi Electronic Systems. has formed a team to compete for a new U.S. Navy contract to consolidate dissimilar networks aboard naval ships into a common, secure computing For the general concept, see .
Secure Computing Corporation, or SCC, is a public company (NASDAQ: SCUR) that develops and sells computer security products, such as:
- Firewalls including Sidewinder, SnapGear and CyberGuard TSP
Under the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services, or CANES, program, commercial, off-the-shelf technology will replace legacy command, control, communications, computing, and intelligence (C4I C4I Command, Control, Communications, Computers, & Intelligence (US DoD)
C4I Command Control Communications Computer and Intelligence ) hardware and software systems unique to each Navy ship. The new systems will use a service-oriented architecture that allows commonality across platforms and easy insertion of new capabilities.
"The current disparate infrastructure requires significant budget to maintain and does not to provide the network bandwidth necessary for effective C4I operation," said John Jarman, vice president of C3I C3I Command, Control, Communications & Intelligence (US DoD)
C3I Computer Controlled Coil Ignition
C3I Command, Control, and Communications Interoperability
C3I Command Control Communications and Intelligence systems for BAE Systems in San Diego. "A unified information technology infrastructure among the Navy's 300 ships will enable sailors to better share intelligence across different security domains and reduce training costs."
The team consists of BAE Systems, Raytheon and DRS Technologies. BAE Systems will provide systems integration expertise. Raytheon will furnish systems engineering, information assurance, maritime C4I hardware and electronics packaging, and integrated logistics support A composite of all the support considerations necessary to assure the effective and economical support of a system for its life cycle. It is an integral part of all other aspects of system acquisition and operation. Also called ILS. . DRS Technologies will provide maritime information technology equipment, isolation hardware, and production.
"Raytheon has a legacy of proven performance, delivering technological innovation, systems integration, and mission support," said Robert Martin, Raytheon's vice president and deputy for Seapower Capability Systems. "Together with BAE Systems, we will leverage our collective experience and deliver a comprehensive, open solution to meet the Navy's mission requirements for CANES."
Said Alan R. Dietrich, president of DRS's Command, Control, Communications, and Aviation group: "DRS DRS Drives (street suffix)
DRS Dispute Resolution Service
DRS Department of Rehabilitative Services
DRS Direct Registration System (securities)
DRS Department of Rehabilitation Services has a 40-year legacy of offering high-quality and mission-critical products and services to the Navy. We are pleased to offer key capabilities to the U.S. Naval Forces in collaboration with BAE Systems for this program."
The team will co-locate at the BAE Systems C4I development center in Point Loma, California. The Navy is expected to award the CANES contract in December.
