NSWC Corona is the Navy’s independent assessment agent and home to three premier national laboratory and assessment centers:  the Joint Warfare Assessment Lab; the Measurement Science and Technology Lab; and the Daugherty Memorial Assessment Center.   Along with the renowned “Corona Engineers,” these state-of-the-art facilities enable Corona to fulfill its unique mission for the Navy.  The JWAL and DMAC are at the core of Corona’s integrated approach to warfare assessment, and the Measurement Science and Technology Lab is where Corona researches and establishes the metrology and calibration standards and procedures for the Navy and Marine Corps.

Using a rigorous, disciplined independent assessment process, Corona provides the fleet, program managers and acquisition community with the objective assessment needed for the Navy to gauge warfighting capability of ships and aircraft, assess warfare training and analyze new defense systems – even those systems in the concept phase.  This commitment to independent assessment allows the Navy to achieve the greatest value for acquisition, material readiness and lifecycle management programs – for Today’s Navy, the Next Navy, and the Navy After Next.  As the Navy’s metrology and calibration authority, Corona also sets the measurement science and calibration standards to support proper weapons operation, interoperability and peak readiness for the fleet.  Corona uses innovation and automation to also reduce burdensome workload for Sailors, while reducing maintenance costs and increasing readiness for the Navy.

Technical capabilities and unique expertise – ranging from missile defense assessment to range and test instrumentation to setting measurement standards – enable Corona to support in-service and emerging weapons and combat systems for key customers in critical areas:


  • Trusted agent for Commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force (COTF) analysis and assessment
  • Connectivity with worldwide presence to Test & Evaluation (T&E), Missile Defense Agency (MDA), Joint National Training Capability (JNTC), and fleet training sites to enable analysis and reporting of assessment results in near real-time
  • Integrated performance and readiness assessment of weapons and combat systems
  • Range instrumentation management and engineering
  • Test systems effectiveness and measurement integrity
  • Weapons and combat systems product integrity
