USS McCampbell Sets Sail With Northrop Afloat Network; Mike Twyman Comments

northrop-Grumman_BLUEThe USS McCampbell has completed a five-month stay in Japan for maintenance and it will sail back to the U.S. equipped with Northrop Grumman’s new tactical afloat network.

Northrop has delivered 11 Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services systems to the Navy and 10 of them are intended for guided-missile destroyers such as the USS McCampbell, Northrop said Monday.

“We have system ‘light off.’ McCampbell is underway and CANES is performing well with sailors using email, video and secure voice capabilities,” said Mike Twyman, Northrop vice president and general manager of defense systems.

The company installed the system at U.S. Fleet Activities in Yokosuka, Japan and is implementing another unit onto the USS Milius, which is currently in an 11-month drydock availability.
