The 2 RNOSCs, located in Hawaii (RNOSC PAC) and Virginia (RNOSC LANT), consolidated 3 worldwide Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Stations (NCTAMSs) plus 2 Naval Computer and Telecommunication Stations (NCTSs). These RNOSCs communicate with satellite termination sites around the world through the Navy’s High Speed Global Ring (HSGR) communications network. By consolidating the 5 communications sites into 2, the Navy has achieved cost savings through personnel reduction and has streamlined the technology acquisition process. See the article by the Navy’s RNOSC modeling and simulation team for more information.
Northrop Grumman will perform the work under the delivery order in San Diego, CA (10%); Portsmouth, VA (10%); Wahiawa, HI (25 percent); Naples, Italy (10%); Bahrain (10%) and Norfolk, VA (35%) and expects to complete the work by March 15/10. This delivery order has an exception to the fair opportunity process pursuant to U.S. federal law. The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego, CA awarded this delivery order on behalf of the Navy’s Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communication, Computers and Intelligence.
