The 2006 Naval budget funds programs to transform C4ISR assets so forces are relevant to current and future threats, while also seeking to sustain a balanced R&D effort and ensure joint interoperable-networked systems. Funding continues for integrated shipboard network systems procurement and installation to achieve fully operational capability for all platforms.
The Navy’s Information Technology for the 21st Century (IT-21) program provides the common backbone for C4ISR systems to be linked afloat, ashore and to the Internet. C4ISR programs are the backbone of the combat capability of naval forces. IT-21 connectivity is critical because it provides the bandwidth required for the fast transmission of combat information.
Frost & Sullivan’s Aerospace & Defense Group finds that the North American Naval C4ISR Market size was $6.96 billion in 2005 and estimates to reach $7.69 billion in 2010.

“The goal is to replace costly legacy platforms with more efficient and capable integrated systems, and FORCEnet is the cornerstone architecture that will integrate sensors, networks, decision aids and weapons into an adaptive maritime system,” observes Industry Analyst Bradley Curran.
The Navy and Marine Corps exist to control the seas, assure access globally and project power beyond the sea, so that events can be influenced and advance American interests across the full spectrum of military operations.
Advanced sensors, long-duration unmanned vehicles, high-performance onboard computers, transparent communications and automated intelligence analysis will provide the Navy and Marine Corps with high-resolution situational awareness and targeting data.
The typical ship has over 25 different types of transmitting antennas and devices covering a large portion of the frequency spectrum. From HF communications to radars, all of these high-powered transmitters can interfere and multipath with other frequencies. Finding solutions to cosite interference so ships can accomplish their wide variety of missions and become more stealth is a challenge. As the telecommunication systems become more complex and more antennas are placed on the same structure, interference impedes the performance of the systems.
With NCW doctrine implementation and IP, it is increasingly important that the analog digital converter dynamic range (the ratio between maximal input signal and intrinsic noise level) is sufficient. Interference can corrupt the signals with noise and deteriorate the quality of the communication. In addition, it can cause jamming of the systems, followed by complete interruption of already established communication.
