Nutanix to Help Modernize Navy’s DJC2 Program

Feb. 6, 2017
Nutanix has been contracted to modernize the Navy’s Deployable Joint Command and Control (DJC2) program.

The U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command has awarded an Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract to Nutanix in conjunction with Crown Point Systems and World Wide Technology. Intended to modernize the Navy’s Deployable Joint Command and Control (DJC2) program, the five-year, firm-fixed-price contract has a maximum value of $28.8 million if all orders are exercised. To date, Nutanix has received orders from Crown Point Systems for approximately $3.5 million as part of the contract.

The DJC2 program fields an integrated command and control (C2) system that enables a joint task force (JTF) to establish a headquarters operation within 24 hours of arrival anywhere in the world. Such JTFs provide operations for a wide range of functions, including for homeland security, combatant command missions, and emergency overseas efforts. The contract will support the modernization of the program, with Crown Point Systems as the prime contractor.

“As the prime contractor, we needed to provide the Navy a solution to meet their modernization requirements,” said Ryan Marovish, president of Crown Point Systems, “as well as offer the flexibility, reliability, and key performance metrics to support a mission-critical program, such as DJC2.”

Of Nutanix and its enterprise cloud platform, Marowish added: “We partnered with Nutanix for their solution’s technical capabilities, in addition to the success that other agencies have experienced in terms of modernization. Nutanix was a clear choice for this opportunity.”
