Naval Sea Systems Command

The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) is the largest of the U.S. Navy's five "systems commands," or materiel (not to be confused with "material") organizations. NAVSEA consists of four shipyards, nine "warfare centers" (two undersea and seven surface), four major shipbuilding locations and the NAVSEA headquarters, located at the Washington Navy Yard, in Washington D.C.

NAVSEA's primary objective is to engineer, build and support the U.S. Navy's fleet of ships and combat systems. NAVSEA accounts for nearly one-fifth of the Navy's budget, with more than 100 acquisition programs under its oversight.

The five Navy systems commands are:

  • Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA)
  • Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR)
  • Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR)
  • Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC)
  • Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP)
