The U.S. Navy’s Combat Systems Integration effort is poised to reap $219 million in funding over the next 10 years. This RDT&E funding, as requested in the FY16 U.S. defense budget, will be driven by the demand for advanced technologies to meet evolving military strategic needs. Many warships are currently being upgraded with a range of new electronic equipment. The integration testing conducted under the Combat Systems Integration program ensures that none of this new equipment will interfere with the performance of the other equipment and weaponry on board.

Among recent program efforts, in FY14 the program funded engineering assessments of proposed C5I capability modernization. These were performed under the program’s Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Combat Systems, and Intelligence Modernization Process (C5IMP) and Fleet Readiness (C5ISR) efforts.
