CANES will deliver next generation integrated network support to the fleet using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software, while consolidating five legacy networks into one. It is designed to deliver standardization and increased interoperability across the fleet, with increased security. CANES delivers its capabilities within a single complete system, establishing the necessary infrastructure that will enable timely information exchange among tactical, support and administrative users, applications and information technology platforms. The new system will both increase operational effectiveness and improve the 'on-board' quality of life for Sailors.
"CGI brings a depth of real-world experience to CANES as a result of supporting Navy customers for decades," said Timothy J. Hurlebaus , Senior Vice-President, CGI Federal. "We welcome the opportunity to deliver for the Navy on this visible, mission-critical program."
