Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock (NSWCCD)

The Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWCCD) is the Navy's center of excellence for ships and ship systems. The key elements in its technological success are the breadth and depth of its capabilities and the expertise of its scientists and engineers.

With unique laboratories and test facilities, large-scale land-based engineering and test sites, and at-sea measurement facilities throughout the United States, Carderock has been at the forefront of technologies vital to the success of the Navy and the maritime industry for more than a century. The Division's primary locations are its headquarters in West Bethesda, Maryland and the Ship Systems Engineering Station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. NSWCCD is a major component of the Naval Sea Systems Command.

Today, the Carderock Division consists of approximately 3,800 scientists, engineers and support personnel working in more than 40 disciplines ranging from fundamental science to applied/in-service engineering. Headquartered in West Bethesda, Maryland, the Division houses world-class facilities and laboratories. A major operating site in Philadelphia is recognized as the center for naval machinery. The Division also conducts research and development at several remote sites across the country.

As a major component of the Naval Sea Systems Command the Carderock Division provides cradle-to-grave support for its technical products over an enormous range of scientific areas related to surface and undersea platforms. The Division addresses the full spectrum of applied maritime science and technology, from the theoretical and conceptual beginnings, through design and acquisition, to implementation and follow-on engineering. This includes all technical aspects of improving the performance of ships, submarines, military water craft, and unmanned vehicles, as well as research for military logistics systems. In addition, the Division is uniquely chartered by Congress to support America's maritime industry.
