The talk didn't cover how computer systems in civilian infrastructure have been maintained over the past 50+ years. ...

I asked myself the same question. My (uneducated) guess is that up to now these infrastructure-type computer systems have been maintained in house; this may be increasingly unsustainable. The CIP project aims to pool resources so that common components can be jointly maintained for a longer term and at a less cost. A very admirable initiative!
