Rear Adm. David Lewis, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command chief, has said SPAWAR’s fiscal 2017 strategic plan has five areas of focus and one of those is to accelerate and streamline delivery of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms.

Lewis told C4ISRNET reporter Mark Pomerleau in an interview published Tuesday that his command has started to push modernization work out of the Chief of Naval Operations availabilities and those projects include updates to the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services system and Operations Rolling Tide-related upgrades.

He said SPAWAR consolidated 33 data centers in 2016 and plans to move the Navy to the cloud with a plan to release the Next Generation Enterprise Networks recompete contract in 2018 as part of the strategic plan’s information technology service delivery objective.

The command also has started to implement the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s standards and risk management framework in an effort to carry out the plan’s “cyber technical leadership” objective, Lewis noted.

Other areas of focus that Lewis discussed include efforts to reduce operational costs and address issues with the command’s support contracting process.
