This multi-disciplined Engineering team in St. Pete leads the development of the U.S. Navy's Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) program, a real-time 'sensor-netting' system that brings together radar data into a single integrated air picture from geographically dispersed ships, aircraft and ground-based units. This integrated picture improves a battlegroup's effectiveness by enabling longer range, cooperative, or layered engagements. Today's CEC benefits from advancements in commercial and specialized technologies, as well as from the experience and expertise of the IDS team, continually innovating to advance capability and performance.
