This video showcases Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic's largest-ever annual System of Systems Naval Integration Experiment (SoSNIE) event in 2024. During the event, more than 200 NIWC Atlantic engineers, scientists and technical managers collaborated on nearly 50 command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, analyzing data exchanges across local airspace to evaluate the proficiency of end-to-end targeting, fires and communications.

Integrating systems and coordinating with the joint force are objectives set out by Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Lisa Franchetti in her list of priorities called “America’s Warfighting Navy.” In the document released in January, the CNO said leveraging wargaming and experimentation could help integrate conventional capability with hybrid, unmanned and disruptive technologies.

For realistic connectivity throughout the experiment, Marines from the Marine Corps Cyberspace Operations Group in Quantico, Virginia, were on hand to provide Marine Corps Enterprise Network (MCEN) access.
