Welcome to Naval Support Activity Orlando

Naval Support Activity (NSA) Orlando opened in 1988 as the home of the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division(NAWCTSD) Orlando. NAWCTSD Orlando is the Navy’s principal center for modeling, simulation, and training systems technologies. The Center provides training systems development for a wide spectrum of military programs, including aircraft, surface ships, submarines, and other specialized requirements.

Installation Information

Today, NSA Orlando provides support to all Department of Defense activities in Central Florida, most of which support military training and simulation missions. It has added the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation as a major tenant unit.

Other major supported organizations adjacent to NSA Orlando include the U.S. Marine Corps’ Program Manager for Training Systems; the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command’s SFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center; the Orlando office of the U.S. Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation; the U.S. Navy Human Performance Center Orlando; the United States Joint Forces Command’s Joint Development Integration Facility and Joint Training Integration and Evaluation Center, and the Joint Advanced Distributed Learning Co-Laboratory.

  • 181004-N-HO435-0002 PENSACOLA, Fla. (Oct. 4, 2018) Lynn Simpson, executive director of Total Force Manpower & Personnel for Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, left, discusses the Multipurpose Reconfigurable Training System 3-D (MRTS 3-D) with representatives from Naval Education and Training Command and Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training. MRTS 3-D laboratories and classrooms allow Sailors to use 50-inch touch screens to see and access parts of tactical equipment in a video game simulation environment. MRTS 3-D is an example of the kind of technology Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division Orlando is pursuing as part of Sailor 2025's Ready, Relevant Learning initiative, to increase the number of "reps and sets" a Sailor can perform before actually interacting with physical equipment or systems.
