NUWC Keyport, one of two divisions of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC), provides Fleet readiness support for submarines, surface ships, torpedoes, mines, land attack systems, and Fleet training systems. Support services we provide includes inservice engineering, test and evaluation, custom engineered solutions, and cutting-edge technologies that sustain and maintain our nation’s Undersea Warfare Systems.

NUWC Keyport is located on Puget Sound, with the Olympic Mountain range to the west and the Cascade Mountain range to the east. Our remote locations provide similar beauty with test and evaluation facilities for USW ships and systems located in Nanoose, British Columbia; Pearl Harbor and Ford Island, Hawaii; San Diego, California; Hawthorne, Nevada; and Guam.

Keyport Test Ranges The Navy has conducted underwater testing in Puget Sound since 1914, when the Pacific Coast Torpedo Station was established at Keyport. This station has been associated with aspects of virtually all major developments in undersea warfare systems since its operational inception. NUWC Keyport has the mission, organization, facilities, and expertise to support advancements in undersea systems, including the assembly, production acceptance (proofing), testing, and evaluation of these systems as part of their integration into operational Fleet elements. Testing conducted by NUWC Keyport not only provides critical validation of the Navy’s undersea devices and craft but also represents an important Homeland Security component.
