Navy envisions integrated information systems

The Navy's road map of the future is guiding it toward integrating its information systems and testing new technologies, pushing them faster to the fleets, said Vice Adm. Richard W. Mayo, commander of the Naval Network Warfare Command in Norfolk, Va.

"It's an effort where we align, organize, integrate and transform the Navy to a capabilities-based force," Mayo said yesterday at the 2002 Military Communications Conference in Anaheim, Calif.

The IT component that unifies the plan, known as Sea Power 21, is FORCEnet, the Navy's architecture for integrating IT systems. FORCEnet represents the networks, sensors and communications needed to give the Navy a global reach, Mayo said.

"This is our Navy's future," Mayo said. "We are going to get to one naval network, afloat and ashore."
