Background/History of the Laboratory

FRCSW traces its heritage to 1919, when the Navy began repairing aircraft at what is now known as Naval Air Station North Island.  Since its humble beginnings almost a century ago, the facility has been at the forefront of weapon system sustainment, providing innovative Naval Aviation maintenance solutions utilizing the latest technologies.  Today, as the Navy's premiere west coast Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facility, FRCSW specializes in the maintenance, engineering and logistics support for a wide range of high-performance aircraft; servicing more that 225 airframes and 35,000 components annually.

In an effort to expand awareness and create new opportunities in the technology transfer arena, FRCSW was designated Federal Laboratory status by Office of Naval Research In November 2010.  This new designation allows FRCSW to collaborate with businesses and academic institutions in order to facilitate Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) and Educational Partnerships Agreements (EPAs) to improve technology transfer both in and out of the Department of Defense.

Mission of the Laboratory

With a long standing tradition of innovative and cost effective solutions, FRCSW provides quality aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) readiness support to U.S. and select foreign military customers, and MRO partners. Blending talented and diverse civilian and military personnel, the latest technologies, streamlined processes, and continuous improvements provides a solid foundation for our "can-do" philosophy. Our creative approach to providing readiness support through our distributed maintenance capabilities enables fast response, high quality, targeted turnaround time, and cost effective MRO services saving time and money for our customers and the taxpayer.
