Profile
As a U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Energetics Center, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division (NSWC IHD) is a leader in the Navy's Energetics Enterprise. Its mission is to provide research, development, test and evaluation and in-service support of energetics and energetic materials for propulsion systems, ordnance & pyrotechnic devices and fuzing for Navy, Joint Forces, and the Nation. Capabilities include research, test, and engineering of chemicals, propellants, explosives, related electronic devices and associated ordnance equipment.
 
In short, the U.S. Navy and other Federal Government agencies and allied nations come to NSWC IHD for energetic systems solutions — the organization supports the warfighter of today, anticipates their future needs, and makes discoveries for the next generation.

Air Force partnership advancing wearable sensor technology

Imagine being able to monitor your health quickly, simply, painlessly, and continuously, without complicated equipment or a doctor visit. For athletes or people with health conditions, an immediate physical "status update" would be a great convenience. For the warfighter in the field, it could be the crucial element of a successful mission.
