The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) is a component of the United States Navy located in Charleston, South Carolina.

The center provides knowledge superiority to joint warfighters and peacekeepers through the development, acquisition and life cycle support of effectively integrated Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, Information Technology (IT) and Space capabilities.

The agency supports the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Global War on Terrorism.


SSC Charleston is one of five field activities of Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). SPAWAR (pronounced spay-war) and its systems centers provide much of the tactical and non-tactical information management technology required by the Navy to complete its operational missions.

SPAWAR also designs Air Particulate Detector (APD) monitors for the US Navy Nuclear fleet to detect airborne radioactive contamination.
