The Narragansett Bay Test Facility (NBTF), located just off the coast of Newport, R.I, is a NUWC test and evaluation facility designed to support research and development work in advanced underwater weapons and weapons systems, weapon launchers, Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), and oceanographic equipment.

The NBTF offers a variety of unique shallow water ranges which allow government, academic and industry partners to expose prototype systems to real environments with a minimum risk of loss.
