Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES)
CANES is the consolidation and enhancement of the requirements for five existing legacy network programs, as well as a single support framework for all C4I applications that currently require dedicated infrastructure to operate delivered and managed legacy systems. These include the Integrated Shipboard Network System (ISNS), Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Networks, and Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange System Maritime (CENTRIXS-M). The CANES concept requires a technical and programmatic realignment of afloat infrastructure and services. CANES will take advantage of the new business model of open architecture, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), and rapid COTS insertion, in order to bring fiscal savings to the Navy, as well as operational agility to the warfighter.
