Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC) 


OUR MISSION


We design, build, deliver and maintain ships, submarines and systems reliably, on-time and on-cost for the United States Navy.


EXPAND THE ADVANTAGE

For as long as we’ve been a Nation, our Navy has played a key role in protecting the world’s maritime system. Today, traditional and non-traditional forces threaten our safety both at home and abroad. Our technical and tactical advantage over our adversaries is being challenged as technology advances at a rapid pace. Every campaign requires a clearly stated and shared objective and vision. The overarching objective and vision of the NAVSEA Campaign is to expand the U.S. Navy’s maritime advantage over our adversaries through our people, products, and services.


ABOUT NAVSEA


The Naval Sea Systems Command is comprised of command staff, headquarters directorates, affiliated Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and numerous field activities. Together, we engineer, build, buy and maintain ships, submarines and combat systems that meet

the Fleet's current and future operational requirements.


Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) is the largest

of the Navy's six system commands. With a fiscal year budget of approximately $36 billion, NAVSEA accounts

for nearly one quarter of the Navy's entire budget.


With a force of 86,600 (as of 1 Aug 2022) civilian

and military personnel, NAVSEA engineers, builds,

buys and maintains the Navy's ships and submarines

and their combat systems.


To accomplish this, NAVSEA manages 150 acquisition programs and manages foreign military sales cases

that include billions of dollars in annual military sales

to partner nations.


The origin of NAVSEA dates to 1794, when Commodore John Barry was charged to oversee the construction

of a 44-gun frigate and ensure that all business

"harmonized and conformed" to the public's interest.


Today, the NAVSEA organization has 42 activities.


NAVSEA strives to be an efficient provider of defense resources for the nation, and it plays an important role

in the Navy Enterprise. As a Provider Command,

it has the responsibility of directing resource sponsors

into the proper mix of manpower and resources

to properly equip the fleet.


NAVSEA has the further responsibility of establishing

and enforcing technical authority in combat system design and operation. These technical standards use the organization's technical expertise to ensure systems

are engineered effectively, and that they operate safely

and reliably.
