The Ten Commands at Naval Support Facility Dahlgren
With over 500 employees, Naval Support Activity South Potomac provides the installation management and support for the Dahlgren base in King George County and three other Navy locations: Naval Support Facility Indian Head, MD, and small naval detachments at the Army's Fort Belvoir in Northern Virginia and at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
Capt. Pete Nette, USN, is the commander.
Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division is by far the largest tenant command, with over 3,100 military and civilian employees. Before the 2003 reorganization, the warfare center also operated as landlord of the base. In terms of mission, it is a direct descendant of the Naval Proving Ground established in 1918. The center also oversees work at the Navy's Dam Neck facility in Virginia Beach, as well as smaller operations in California and New Jersey.
Capt. Michael H. Smith, USN, is commander.
The Joint Warfare Analysis Center is a joint military command with more than 500 employees. It grew out of the warfare center, but is now completely separate. The command analyzes projects that require coordination among military branches and agencies.
