About Us 

The SPAWAR (pronounced spā-wôr) is one of three major Department of Navy acquisition commands.  SPAWAR delivers higher-end Navy information technology products and services to the fleet and other Defense Department stakeholders. SPAWAR is the Navy’s Information Dominance Systems Command and is committed to serving the Fleet. We uphold Navy values, contribute to the achievement of the Navy’s mission, and keep key elements of the Navy’s strategy in mind as we perform our work on a daily basis.

As the Navy’s Information Dominance Systems Command, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command designs, develops and deploys advanced communications and information capabilities. With more than 8,900 active duty military and civil service professionals located around the world and close to the fleet, SPAWAR is at the forefront of research, engineering, acquisition and support services that provide vital decision superiority to our forces at the right time and for the right cost.

Our products and services transform ships, aircraft and vehicles from individual platforms into integrated battle forces, enhancing information dominance and awareness among Navy, Marine, joint forces, federal agencies and international allies. As the Navy’s technical lead for C4ISR, SPAWAR provides the hardware and software to connect our warfighters at sea, on land and in the air. We support the full lifecycle of product and service delivery: from the initial research and development, to acquisition and deployment, to operations and logistics support.
