Lockheed to Design Navy’s Tactical Afloat Network Baseline Under $67M IDIQ

Lockheed Martin has won a potential five-year, $66.6M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to conduct a baseline “analysis of alternatives” under the U.S. Navy‘s tactical afloat network modernization and consolidation efforts.

Work will include engineering services intended to address end-of-life and end-of-sale products, future baseline requirements and security issues for the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services program, the Defense Department said Thursday.

The company will also help the service branch design systems and subsystems; facilitate market research and analyses of alternative components; procure components and subsystems; provide technical documentation updates; administer integration tests and deliver components to be deployed into the CANES baseline.

CANES will combine five legacy networks for shipboard, submarine and shore-based programs into one common computing environment designed to handle over 40 command, control, intelligence and logistics applications.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command received three bids for the project and the service branch will allocate $5K in fiscal 2017 “other” procurement funds for the first task order.

Work will take place in San Diego through August 2023.
