Currently on any Navy destroyer, cruiser or carrier, there are two networks: one for combat systems and one for command and control, and between them they share some 30 interconnections. The Office of Naval Research developed the Universal Gateway which collapses those 30 connections into a single portal, rapidly automating data integration, enhancing information assurance and reducing manpower workloads and costs.
Additionally, the gateway can be put between any different networks, despite their classification levels, so information is available in a timely and effective way for warfighters.
