The rollout of the Navy’s next-generation ship network system might be delayed if service officials decide to go forward with a $102 million proposed cut to the program’s budget, reports Carlo Munoz at AOL Defense.
The service is contemplating the $102 million reduction to its Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services program as part of its draft five-year budget plan, Capt. Didier LeGoff, the CANES program manager, said Oct. 19.
The cut would probably push back the Navy’s schedule for installing the new technology throughout the entire surface fleet by 2020, LeGoff told AOL Defense.
