CANES, the Navy's next generation tactical afloat network, represents a new business model for delivering capability to the fleet. CANES (Consolidated Afloat Network and Enterprise Services) consolidates five legacy networks and combines them into one, which enhances operational effectiveness and provides better quality of life for deployed Sailors.
Additional advantages include:
The Navy's first installation of CANES is taking place aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Milius (DDG 69). The network will be deployed to more than 190 ships, submarines and Maritime Operations Centers by 2020.
