The Northrop Grumman CANES system was tested to evaluate the full spectrum of program requirements including significantly improved system management with integrated cybersecurity and the ability to host multiple mission applications in an operationally simulated afloat environment.
"The rigorous testing verified the technology maturity and validated the effectiveness of our systems integration," said Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager of Defense Systems Division for Northrop Grumman Information Systems. "We're ready to help the Navy deploy a smarter computing infrastructure that is easy to operate and maintain. Our low-risk, affordable design will easily integrate and securely deliver the best C4ISR applications to our warfighters.
"The Northrop Grumman MOSA-CTM process will also allow the Navy to continuously compete the program to drive down acquisition and lifecycle costs," he said.
Modular Open Systems Approach-CompetitiveTM (MOSA-CTM) is Northrop Grumman's strategic business and engineering process that achieves the lifecycle benefits of open-systems architecture and commercial off-the-shelf components and software. The process ensures vendor-neutral, enduring solutions that improve interoperability and lower the total cost of ownership.
