Naval reservists, scientists and engineers work in the Integrated Command Environment (ICE) Human Performance laboratory located at NSWC Dahlgren, Va. The ICE lab focuses on the Navy's evolving human performance and human systems integration (HSI) testing. The lab demonstrates the ability to fight future battles with HSI- engineered hardware, software and features common consoles, displays, and knowledge management features that Fleet Sailors helped design to enhance human performance and mission accomplishment. ICE is part of the vision of Sea Power 21. NSWC Dahlgren provides research, development, test and evaluation, engineering, and fleet support for: Surface Warfare, Surface Ship Combat Systems, Ordnance, Strategic Systems, Mines, Amphibious Warfare Systems, Mine Countermeasures, and Special Warfare Systems.
