History

Prior to June 2015, NAWDC was known as Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (NSAWC) which was the consolidation of three commands into a single command structure on July 11, 1996. NSAWC was comprised of the Naval Strike Warfare Center (STRIKE "U") based at NAS Fallon since 1984, and two schools from NAS Miramar, the Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN) and the Carrier Airborne Early Warning Weapons School (TOPDOME).

Internet Explorer will not be supported on NMCI starting June 15. You will have to use Microsoft Edge moving forward to access JALIS. In order to do this- first you will need to put edge into explorer mode. If you need assistance in this process please see the PowerPoint under the announcement tab  on the SharePoint website at  https://private.navyreserve.navy.mil/CNAFR/NALO/Pages/NRH_Default.aspx
