Bring the power of information to the fight

NIWC Pacific’s Command and Control and Enterprise Engineering (C2E2) professionals design, engineer, test, and support command and control, business, and enterprise capabilities across all warfighting domains. More than 800 scientists, engineers, and technicians in C2E2 bring experience and expertise in software, systems engineering, and test, evaluation, and certification. Our focus is to ensure naval, joint, and coalition warfighters out-think and out-pace any adversary’s decision loop. C2E2 brings the power of information to the fight!


Tactical and Strategic Communications and Networks
  • Tactical and Strategic Networks – Designing, Developing, Integrating and Testing networks that meet the unique operating needs and constraints of warfighting platforms including manned and unmanned platforms that go undersea, on the surface, and airborne. Providing the full gamut of Wide Area Networking, Local Area Networking, and Data Center designs to support the dynamic environments that the naval platforms require.
  • Satellite Communications (SATCOM) – Providing Systems Engineering and Test & Evaluation support. This includes SATCOM terminal support across the DOD as needed.
  • Tactical Communications – Communications (Comms) support for non-SATCOM, including terrestrial Comms inclusive of Line-of-Site, and Beyond-line-of-Site to include HF, VHF and UHF Comms. Such sub-categories include HF Automatic Link Establishment as well as various frequency hopping technologies.
