Point Mugu, CA

The Work We Do
As part of the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD), Point Mugu is dedicated to providing cost-wise readiness and dominant maritime combat solutions to make the great Navy and Marine Corps teams even better. We’re home to the Navy’s operational test organization, working to provide efficient deployment of new weapon systems through a unique combination of co-located laboratories, ranges and weapons test squadrons. Our state-of-the-art laboratories provide unique capabilities for your career – in threat analysis, design evaluation and the ability to test battle force in a network-centric environment.

As the recognized expert in Electronic Warfare (EW) for the Naval Aviation Enterprise team, we support the fleet EW community from concept development to year-round EW intelligence operational support. We also support fleet training and tactics development, particularly large scale, major exercises, including fleet battle experiences on our Pacific Sea Range. 

We’re experts in sea range operations, mono- and bi-static radar cross-section measurement; surface and air target operations and test and evaluation engineering. We support fleet training in live-fire weapons launched from aircraft, ships and submarines. We provide integration of weapons, electronic warfare systems and avionics onto tactical aircraft. From integration of weapons to design and developmental testing, trainer/support equipment upgrades to operator/maintainer handbooks, mission planning to fleet support and more, we have in-house expertise to provide real-time EW reach-back support for U.S. Navy airborne tactical forces during wartime and peacetime operations. Our current emphasis is on network-centric warfare; the concept of weapon/platform integration is being extended to battle space integration.
