NSB New London Undersea Warfare Command


Under the command of Rear Adm. James E. “Jimmy” Pitts, the Undersea Warfighting Development Center (UWDC) became operational Sept. 1, 2015. UWDC is responsible for training the submarine force in advanced tactics, techniques and procedures for Anti-Submarine Warfare. The center has assumed the training missions, tasks and functions for Theater and Integrated Strike Group Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) from the Naval Mine and Anti-Submarine Warfare Command (NMAWC), based in San Diego.

In 2014, the Chief of Naval Operations ordered the establishment of Warfighting Development Centers (WDCs). The CNO approved Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces and Commander, Pacific Fleet in establishing WDCs for air, undersea, surface and expeditionary forces. WDCs will provide advanced warfighting tactical training across air, sea, and space domains. This will enhance war­fighting effectiveness by creating cohesiveness across all warfare communities.
