Common Network Interface
Improved Situational Awareness for Expeditionary Strike Groups
Common Network Interface (CNI) offers functional system improvements for LHA and LHD Class ships, allowing these ships to interoperate more effectively with other modern ships in the fleet. CNI provides ship commanders with all of the available tactical and situational awareness information by integrating the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) information with local tactical pictures. CNI distributes tactical information that was previously held locally to Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) units.
