BAE Systems Delivers DCGS-N to Two U.S. Navy Ships

Monday, April 11, 2011



NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – Today at the Navy League Sea Air Space Exposition, BAE Systems announced it has delivered two production units of the U.S. Navy’s primary shipboard intelligence system for U.S. naval forces, providing significantly greater intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting capability over legacy systems.

The first BAE Systems-built production system of the Distributed Common Ground System-Navy (DCGS-N), is currently being installed onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) in Norfolk, Va. The second system was delivered to the government for immediate shipment to the USS George Washington (CVN 73) in Yokosuka, Japan.

DCGS-N integrates applications and services onto a common infrastructure to share and disseminate vital data for analysis and targeting to support ashore and afloat missions. As the U.S. Navy’s component of the DoD’s DCGS family of systems, DCGS-N allows the Navy to exchange information and data across multiple security domains, warfare areas, environments and theaters.

BAE Systems is also working to deliver upgraded system capabilities with an early adopter upgrade scheduled for installation on the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) later this spring. The BAE Systems-led team also consists of General Dynamics, Sun Microsystems, ManTech, Space Dynamics Laboratory, InVisM, Argon ST and Athena Consulting.
