This Masterplan is an acquisition document produced on an annual basis by PEO C4I. It describes the various portfolios and programs or record that are being fielded and supported by PEO C4I today and across the Future Year Defense Plan. It also identifies how those portfolios and programs are configured on various Navy platforms afloat, ashore and airborne. This Masterplan also describes the migration of PEO systems as they evolve in the phased delivery of netcentric capabilities to warfighters.
PEO C4I has compiled S&T capability gaps for associated programs of record based on current and projected needs and an associated timeframe when the capability is needed: near-term 0 to three years; mid-term three to eight years; far-term nine years or longer. These consolidated S&T capability gaps have been aligned to the draft U.S. Navy Information Dominance S&T Focus Areas.
