Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division (NSWC Ph.D.), a component of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), is a tenant command located at Naval Base Ventura County in Port Hueneme, California. In addition to its primary location at Port Hueneme, the division operates detachments at White Sands, New Mexico, N.M., Virginia Beach, Va. and Louisville, Ky

NSWC Ph.D. was founded in 1963 as the Naval Ship Missile Systems Engineering Station. It was established to provide overall technical support for the new guided missiles—RIM-2 Terrier, RIM-8 Talos, and RIM-24 Tartar—that were being introduced into the naval fleet. Port Hueneme was chosen as the site for this operation because of its deepwater port, its proximity to the Navy’s missile testing range at Point Mugu, California and the availability of space at the already operating Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme.
