The US Navy's attempt to update its aging computer systems has run aground, according to reports in the Washington Post.
The Navy/Marine Corps intranet, an internal website for the two service branches, is turning into a major technology headache for the units and the prime contractor EDS.
Already a year behind schedule, some in Congress are now concerned that the $6.9bn project will not stay within budget.
The main problem is that the US Navy appears to have underestimated the amount of software that it currently uses by a factor of 10.
There has also been a problem with integrating the old and new applications.
Some of the old software cannot be moved to the new system, meaning that hundreds of workers now have two computers on their desks.
