Virginia Beach Detachment
The Virginia Beach Detachment was established to support the Port Hueneme Division’s mission to provide test and evaluation, in-service engineering, and integrated logistics support for surveillance radar systems, system interface and radar design improvement.
The detachment also maintains a land-based engineering and test facility complete with 11 air and surface search radar systems that support engineering development, logistics product development, and live radar testing. In support of the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) system, the detachment also maintains the two East Coast relay towers at Eastville, VA and Reedville, VA as well as mobile joint interoperability test equipment (five High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) and one mobile tower). On a daily basis, the Virginia Beach Detachment also provides remote troubleshooting assistance and onboard direct fleet support for every U.S. Navy ship and numerous foreign navy customers.
