Welcome to Naval Support Activity Crane

Technology - Ammunition - Environment

In 2004, Naval Support Activity Crane officially stood up as the installation command, charged with ensuring quality support allowing NSWC Crane, CAAA, and other tenant commands to remain focused on their engineering, ammunition and logistics missions. Today grown from its ordnance roots, Crane is recognized worldwide as a modern leader in diverse and technical products aimed at meeting the needs of today’s warfighter in the defense of the nation. 



Naval Support Activity and Crane Army Ammunition Activity had the pleasure of showing the Hatchet Company, Washington H.S. Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Command Cadets around the activity Oct. 13.  The cadets learned about the mission to provide munitions readiness to the Joint force and met the hardworking Hoosiers from across the region who ensure our warfighters are equipped to win.
