One of two divisions of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, is the Navy's full-spectrum research, development, test and evaluation, engineering, and fleet support center for submarine warfare systems and many other systems associated with the undersea battlespace.
NUWC Division Newport provides the technical foundation that enables the conceptualization, research, development, fielding, modernization, and maintenance of systems that ensure our Navy's undersea superiority.
NUWC Division Newport is responsible, cradle to grave, for all aspects of systems under its charter, and is engaged in efforts ranging from participation in fundamental research to the support of evolving operational capabilities in the U.S. Navyfleet. The major thrust of NUWC Division Newport's activities is in applied research and system development.
With headquarters in Rhode Island, NUWC Division Newport operates detachments at West Palm Beach, Florida, and Andros Island in the Bahamas. Remote test facilities are located atSeneca Lake and Fisher's Island in New York, and Dodge Pond, Connecticut.


NUWC Division Newport's mission is to provide the technical foundation which enables the conceptualization, research, development, fielding, modernization and maintenance of systems that ensure the undersea superiority of the U.S. Navy.
