Description

The initial mission of Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center was to prepare, load, renovate, receive, store, and issue all ammunition, including pyrotechnics and illuminating projectiles, and to act as a principal source of supply at a most critical time - the early days of World War II. After the end of World War II, NSWC Crane began to develop an expertise in engineering and electronics that has carried the facility into a leadership position in today's Navy.

Today, as a warfare center within Naval Sea Systems Command, NSWC Crane is a multi-mission, multi- service product center with both fleet support and industrial base missions. Our fleet support mission is performed in a joint, cross-service, and cross-platform environment. NSWC Crane serves a modern and sophisticated Navy as a recognized leader in the areas of Strategic Missions, Electronic Warfare and Special Missions. By stewarding the technical capabilities required of the warfare center, NSWC Crane is a service leader in microwave tube technology, printed circuit boards, pyrotechnics, radiation-hardened devices and power systems.

Partnerships with industry, academia and other government activities leverage the strengths of each to meet the needs of the Department of Defense. NSWC Crane and its partners are known for world-class technical leadership to virtually every Warfighter, ship, submarine, aircraft, and missile system fielded by the Navy.

Mission

The mission of NSWC Crane Division is to provide acquisition engineering, in-service engineering and technical support for sensors, electronics, electronic warfare and special warfare weapons. NSWC Crane also works to apply component and system-level product and industrial engineering to surface sensors, strategic systems, special warfare devices and electronic warfare/information operations systems, as well as to execute other responsibilities as assigned by the Commander, Naval Surface Warfare Center.

The focus of NSWC Crane is harnessing the power of technology for the Warfighter. We specialize in the total life-cycle support within three primary focus areas:

  • Special Missions
  • Strategic Missions
  • Electronic Warfare/Information Operations
