Heritage

  • In 1944, the Navy acquired the Brewster Aircraft Corporation which consisted of production shops,administration spaces and the adjoining airfield and hangar spaces. The Navy designated the plant the Naval Air Modification Unit (NAMU), a branch of the Naval Air Material Center (NAMC), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The task assigned to NAMU involved quantity conversion and modification of newly produced aircraft prior to delivery to the fleet for combat use. With the end of WW II the need for NAMU vanished and in 1947 it was redesignated as the U. S. Naval Air Development Station (NADS). Expansion of NADS activities necessitated another reorganization along more functional lines as the U. S. Naval Air Development Center (NADC) in 1949. NADC became part of the Naval Air Warfare Center command in 1996 and was closed 31 Mar 1997
