The Distributed Common Ground System-Navy (DCGS-N) is a critical component of the Navy's intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. DCGS-N is designed to receive, process, exploit, and disseminate data from various ISR collection assets and intelligence databases. The program aims to provide the Navy with a comprehensive intelligence picture for battle management and information dominance in support of combat operations. DCGS-N also supports the integration of emerging technologies to ensure superiority in the intelligence domain. Additionally, the Intelligence Carry-On Program (ICOP) within this budget line item provides multi-source intelligence and analytical capabilities for Navy surface and expeditionary operations, including full-motion video capability and support for battlespace awareness and visualization.

The specific objectives of Program 2914 include enhancing the Navy's ability to access and share ISR information across joint forces using common enterprise standards and services. This includes integrating data from spaceborne, airborne, subsurface, and surface ISR collection assets, as well as intelligence databases and producers. The program also aims to support Joint Task Force-level and below combat operations by providing critical intelligence for battle management and information dominance. Additionally, Program 2914 seeks to fulfill a critical mission set afloat and ashore by processing and exploiting tactical and imagery intelligence, geospatial intelligence, and signal intelligence while facilitating precision target geopositioning and imagery capabilities. Furthermore, the program aims to conduct research and assessments of tactically relevant emerging technologies for program insertion to ensure superiority in the intelligence domain.
