BAE Systems to Produce USN CANES

$30 Million for Critical Information Warfare Platform

The USN has issued two task orders to BAE Systems for production of the Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise Services (CANES), for two ARLEIGH BURKE-class destroyers, a VIRGINIA-class submarine, and two BLUE RIDGE-class command ships, the company announced on 11 November.

The contracts, worth over $30 million (€25.5 million), cover production and integration of the mission-critical information warfare platform, which helps sailors execute their missions and remain connected while at sea.

These two task orders permit us to continue our high-quality, high volume production and integration service, assembling and delivering CANES to the Navy safely and affordably,” explained Mark Keeler, VP/General Manager of BAE Systems’ Integrated Defense Solutions business. “CANES takes advantage of commercial-off-the-shelf insertion, which brings operational agility to the warfighter and savings to the US Navy.”

Under the first task order, BAE Systems will produce fully integrated CANES racks for the two command ships, which are expected to be completed by February 2022. Under the second, the company will produce fully integrated CANES racks for the other three vessels, which are expected to be completed by March 2022.
