What We Do: In Service Engineering

Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme Division (NSWC PHD)
Supporting the Surface Fleet

NSWC PHD provides In-Service Engineering for Surface Ship Combat Systems and Weapons Systems. In-Service Engineering, or ISE, is the term used to describe support for systems already installed on ships - thus, while they are in service- in contrast to future systems that are still being developed.

In-Service Engineering is a very broad function that includes the installation of systems on ships, certification that the systems perform as designed, and the training and qualification of the Sailors that operate and maintain the systems. It also entails ensuring that the logistics support required (such as training plans, maintenance procedures, spare parts, etc.) is in place when the system is installed.

Personnel at NSWC PHD develop engineering changes to improve the reliability, maintainability, safety, and effectiveness of installed systems. Included in In-Service Engineering is the test and evaluation of these upgrades and improvements, as well as verification of compatibility with other installed systems.
