The largest of the Navy's five systems commands, the
Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) engineers build and support America's Fleet
of ships and combat systems. Accounting for nearly one-fifth of the Navy's
budget, NAVSEA manages more than 150 acquisition programs and has more than
53,000 civilian and military employees at 33 activities in 16 states.
NAVSEA's Warfare Center Enterprise is comprised of the
Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center
(NUWC). With eight Surface Warfare and two Undersea Warfare sites across the
United States, the Warfare Centers supply the technical operations, people,
technology, engineering services and products needed to equip and support the
fleet and meet the warfighters' needs. The Warfare Centers are the Navy's
principal research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) assessment
activity for surface ship and submarine systems and subsystems. In addition,
the Warfare Centers provide depot maintenance and in-service engineering
support to ensure the systems fielded today perform consistently and reliably
in the future.
Naval Surface Warfare Center
Our vision is to be the Navy's trusted partner for
identifying and providing innovative cost effective technical solutions to the
warfighter. We will be responsive to the
Navy Enterprises, the Joint Force and national requirements, while partnering
with industry, other DoD laboratories, and academia.
The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) cohesively and
seamlessly operates the Navy's full spectrum research, development, test and
evaluation, engineering, and fleet support centers for offensive and defensive
systems associated with surface warfare and related areas of joint, homeland
and national defense systems from the sea.
Naval Undersea Warfare Center
Expand the Undersea Advantage
To operate the Navy's full-spectrum research,
development, test and evaluation, engineering, and Fleet support center for
submarines, autonomous underwater systems, and offensive and defensive weapon
systems associated with USW and related areas of homeland security and national
