The initial intent of the task force was to reduce the time required for implementing on-going tech refresh and CENTRIX architecture projects by synchronizing and focusing priorities across the enterprise in each regional network enterprise center.
Shortly upon arrival to Naval Submarine Base in Point Loma, personnel from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) successfully installed and trained CENTRIXS on the Type 209 Peruvian submarine, BAP Arica (SS-36), as well as at the Peruvian Navy's Submarine Headquarters in Callao, Peru.
For the past two months, the BAP Arica has been using CENTRIXS to communicate with Peruvian Submarine Headquarters as well as COMSUBPAC in Hawaii via secure chat and e-mail.
While different security enclaves within CENTRIXS
have been used in previous RIMPAC exercises, this was the first time that all participants had access to a common network.

To ensure that our coalition partners, who filled roughly one-third of the CFACC and CAOC billets, would be able to fully participate in the planning and execution of the CAOC duties and support C3F's C4I goals, it was decided that CENTRIXS
would be the CAOC's primary secure network.
It allowed operators to chat between the CENTRIXS
Four-Eyes and SIPRNET enclaves.
Another very promising example of progress in interoperability is the CENTRIX
(Coalition Enterprise Regional Information Exchange) system, which continues to evolve and improve coalition interoperability.
