CSC has won a four-year $15 million contract to design and install a shipboard and shore-based IT infrastructure for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN).

The agreement covered 17 RAN frigates and supply, refuelling and support ships and three naval communication stations, CSC said.

The big integrator had already started work on stage one of the project which included design, installation and testing of a LAN and WAN system at one land station and on one ship.

Stage two included options to extend the LAN/WAN to two more land bases and 16 ships.

The infrastructure would allow ships to use email and internet communications at sea through a secure LAN and WAN for the first time, CSC said.

CSC would work with fibre optics specialist CDM, logistics and training company KBR and information security company Network Forensics.
