MAJOR COMMAND AND CONTROL
DEPLOYABLE JOINT COMMAND AND
CONTROL (DJC2) SYSTEM
BRIEFING: The DJC2 program is a Department of Defense (DoD)
priority transformation initiative, with the Navy as the lead entity,
that is providing a standardized, integrated, rapidly deployable,
modular, scalable and reconfigurable JC2 and collaboration system to the geographic combatant commanders and Joint Task
Force (JTF) commanders to support en route, rapid response,
early entry and full JTF headquarters C2 operations. Operational
DJC2 systems have been fielded to U.S. Southern Command, U.S.
Army South, U.S. European Command, U.S. Army Southern
European Task Force (Airborne) and U.S. Pacific Command.
INTEGRATOR:..............Naval Surface Warfare Center, Panama City,
GLOBAL COMMAND AND CONTROL
BRIEFING: GCCS-M is the Navy’s fielded C2 system. It receives,
displays, correlates, fuses and maintains geo-locational track
information on friendly, hostile and neutral land, sea and air
forces, and integrates it with available intelligence and environmental information. GCCS-M Increment 1 (Afloat) is installed on
more than 260 ships and submarines throughout the Navy.
GCCS-M Increment 2 (Ashore) has been installed at 36 sites,
including the Chief of Naval Operations Navy Command Center,
five fleet commander headquarters and various allied/NATO sites.
The program is managed as an evolutionary acquisition system
that facilitates rapid insertion of new functions, technologies and
commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) products.
AND CONTROL PROCESSOR (NGC2P)
BRIEFING: The NGC2P/Common Data Link Management
System enables platforms to accurately process and exchange tactical data with naval, joint and coalition forces over any combination of tactical data links in order to achieve a common tactical
picture. The system facilitates the exchange of data between the
Ship Combat System and tactical data link participants in Link
11, Satellite Link 11, Link 16 and Satellite Link 16, and Joint
Range Extension Applications Protocol Appendix C.

INTEGRATED SHIPBOARD NETWORK
BRIEFING: ISNS provides Navy ships with reliable, high-speed,
secret and unclassified Local Area Networks (LANs), along with the
network infrastructure, Basic Network Information Distribution
Services and access to the Defense Information Systems Network’s
Wide-Area Network (WAN) Secure and Nonsecure Internet
Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet and NIPRNet), which are used
by other hosted applications or systems. It enables real-time infor-
mation exchange within ships and between afloat units, component
commanders, shore sites and fleet commanders.
CONSOLIDATED AFLOAT NETWORKS
AND ENTERPRISE SERVICES (CANES)
BRIEFING: CANES will provide a core set of highly survivable,
secure shipboard network services for all afloat platforms and
Maritime Headquarters/Maritime Operations Centers. The CANES
effort is a programmatic and technical/infrastructure consolidation
of what now are separately delivered and managed networks.
The goal for CANES is to field a single, collapsed network
backbone for unclassified through top secret and special compartmented information, while leveraging multiple security levels and
afloat core services (ACS) architectures. To address this goal,
CANES will manage capability gaps through a phased incremental approach. The plan also calls for CANES to use two subpro-grams to address engineering for Common Computing
Environment/Cross Domain Solutions and ACS Across
Communities of Interest (COI) domains, enclaves and platforms.
CANES Increment I will provide an integrated voice, video
and data network infrastructure with supporting network and
infrastructure services across the unclassified, secret, secret
releasable and special intelligence security enclaves. This will give
the Navy a single and highly scalable information operations/
intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) network
infrastructure supporting mission area application hosting and
ACS service delivery across all tactical, tactical support and
nontactical/administrative COIs for deployable maritime assets
and designated shore elements.
The Navy selected Northrop Grumman on Feb. 13, 2012, to
produce the initial shipsets for CANES. The first CANES installation was completed in November 2013 on the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS McCampbell, and subsequent installations
had been completed by August 2014 on nine destroyers, with
further installations ongoing for three aircraft carriers, eight
destroyers, one amphibious assault ship, one cruiser and one
dock landing ship. Installation on 28 more ships is planned for
2015-2016. CANES will be deployed to 180 ships, submarines
and maritime operations centers by 2022.
Initial Operational Test & Evaluation began in August 2014
onboard the destroyer USS Higgins. Also in August 2014, the
Navy selected five vendors to build and deliver subsequent

DISTRIBUTED COMMON GROUND/
SURFACE SYSTEM-NAVY (DCGS-N)
BRIEFING: DCGS-N is the Navy component of the new web-based, joint-services DCGS network that will function as a single enterprise system for rapidly receiving, processing, exploiting and disseminating multiservice and national space-based
ISR data. DCGS-N is interoperable with the DCGS elements of
the other services. All will share a core infrastructure called the
DCGS Integration Backbone, a set of common interface stan-
