These divisions are: Air Traffic Control Systems Division, Identification Systems Division, Integrated Communications and Information Systems Division, and Special Communications Requirements Division.
- Air Traffic Control Systems Division
The Air Traffic Control Systems Division supports Navy and Marine Corps shipboard and shore based ATC landing systems. The division designs, integrates, tests and evaluates ATC systems for new and existing requirements and provides support for the systems in the Fleet. This group of ATC experts is the only group in the nation that supports these shipboard systems installed on all carriers in the fleet.

The Integrated Communications and Information Systems Division provides design, development, integration, installation, testing, certification, training and in-service engineering for communication and information systems for ships, aircraft and land-based facilities. The division also prototypes, develops and performs in-service engineering for data link systems and designs, integrates and maintains information and knowledge management systems, local and wide area networks, and joint operations and crisis response centers in both classified and open environments.
- Special Communications Requirements Division
The Special Communications Requirements Division designs, develops, tests and supports joint special warfare communications electronics. The division develops quick reaction and testing of communications packages for hand-held and manpack radios, high speed and rigid inflatable boats, mobile and fixed-base operations, special communications vans and other vehicles, and air-land transportable command posts.
