NavyShipNorthrop Grumman has installed a tactical afloat network on a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer with the intent to replace legacy shipboard networks and centralize command, control, communications, computers and intelligence programs.

Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager of defense systems at Northrop Grumman Information Systems, said the platform is designed to help provide sailors out at sea with video, email and voice communications.

Northrop sent the system for acceptance to the Tactical Networks Program Office’s program executive office for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence.
