Rapidly deliver cyber warfighting capability from seabed to space.
Over the last decade, information has emerged as a warfighting domain, joining land, sea and air as a critical, contested battlespace. As the Navy's information warfare systems command, SPAWAR is the Navy acquisition command that develops, delivers and sustains communications and information warfare capabilities for warfighters, keeping them securely connected anytime, anywhere.
With a space support activity, two research and development system centers and through partnerships with three program executive offices, SPAWAR provides the hardware and software needed to execute Navy missions.
SPAWAR consists of more than 10,000 active duty military and civil service professionals located around the world and close to the fleet to keep SPAWAR at the forefront of research, engineering and acquisition to provide and sustain information warfare capabilities to the fleet.
SPAWAR is a large, complex, geographically-dispersed organization with more 10,000 people that make up its workforce. SPAWAR provides research and development, systems engineering, testing and evaluation, technical, in-service and support services to the program executive offices (PEOs) during all phases of a program's lifecycle.
Working with other information warfare partners - OPNAV N2/N6, U.S. 10th Fleet/Cyber Command and Naval Information Forces - SPAWAR develops, delivers and sustains information warfare capability to the fleet.
With the development of standards, architectures and infrastructure, along with tactical and business applications, SPAWAR enables our sea and shore platforms and installations to operate effectively and efficiently in cyberspace. The systems SPAWAR develops must meet performance requirements with respect to capacity, security, and reliability, but also be affordable and on schedule for delivery to the fleet.
