The U.S. Navy has awarded positions on an eight-year,  $2, 529, 500, 000 contract to five companies for work to produce and install shipboard networks that are intended as a bridge to the branch’s future afloat networks.

The Defense Department said Wednesday that the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract contains no options and awardees will compete for delivery orders to build the networks.

Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services will function as a single system for interoperable information exchange between users, applications and information technology platforms, the Pentagon said.

Awardees include:

  • BAE Systems
  • General Dynamics C4 Systems (NYSE: GD)
  • Global Technical Systems
  • Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC)
  • Serco Inc.

Seven offers were received by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego for this contract.

Northrop was selected for the first CANES contract in February 2012.
