SPAWAR Submarine Networks Action Committee (SSNAC) and FORCENet

ANSOL, Inc. is responsible for the genesis of this action committee that is now used to manage the body of submarine and shipboard Network Initiatives. The SSNAC uses a team of top level professional representatives from various SPAWAR program offices (e.g. Program Managers for PMW 770, 150 and 160) who follow up on network protocol and web based products.

This initiative has become a FORCENet enabler by providing important network enabling functions to GCCS-M, SubLAN, CANES and NTCSS. This Web-Enabled capability allows submarine systems to be interoperable including Web-Enabled IP connectivity to shared databases and now anticipates support for distributed services.
