BAE Systems and Raytheon have formed a team to pursue opportunities under the Distributed Common Ground System-Navy (DCGS-N) program. The system will share and disseminate intelligence data from a variety of network-centric sources.
The DCGS-N Enterprise Team, consisting of DCGS experts from BAE Systems and Raytheon, will design and demonstrate a Web-based intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and targeting capability to support naval operations and other
The team also will research and offer suggestions on how best to transition these functions into the baseline DCGS-N program.
DCGS-N, in combination with the DCGS Integration Backbone, will provide the network-centric operations backbone for the US Navy and for the actionable and timely distribution of ISR data, processes, and systems.
Separately, a BAE Systems-led team will develop a mission planning capability to more effectively deploy US Marines and amphibious fleets to crisis centres around the world.
The software will automate the Marines’ rapid-response planning process to increase the effectiveness of the service’s Expeditionary Strike Group. Expeditionary Strike Groups are a mix of amphibious assault vehicles and Marines that provide highly mobile, self-sustaining forces for a wide variety of military missions.
The EOP contract was awarded under a Mission Planning Enterprise Contract managed by the US Air Force.
EOP will work within the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) framework. JMPS is a cooperative software development effort between the air force and navy to centralise mission planning across military branches.
