Navy prepares to award contract for shipboard computer networks

The Navy is preparing to award an initial contract in a program to equip 286 ships and 60-plus submarines with onboard computer networks, according to a report by NextGov.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command expects to award a $690 million contract on Feb. 1 for the Consolidated Afloat Networks Enterprise Services (CANES) contract.

The initial contract covers 54 ships over a two-year period. Installation expenses are expected to account for about half the contract cost.
