The Mission of NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support (NAVSUP WSS) (formerly known as Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP)) is to provide Navy, Marine Corps, Joint and Allied Forces program and supply support for the weapon systems that keep our Naval forces MISSION READY. This mission is carried out by a single command organization operating in Mechanicsburg, Pa, Norfolk, VA and Philadelphia, PA.

History of NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support

Our Legacy: Tracing our roots back to the establishment of the Naval Aircraft Factory in 1917, NAVSUP WSS is a testament to the evolution of naval support. In 1995, a pivotal merger occurred, blending the expertise of the Aviation Supply Office (ASO), founded in 1941 at the Naval Aircraft Factory, and the Ships Parts Control Center (SPCC) established in 1945. This union aimed to centralize the Navy's inventory control functions under one command, streamlining processes, and ensuring quality supplies and services for Navy, Marine Corps, Joint, and Allied Forces. Today, with a legacy spanning decades, NAVSUP WSS stands as the embodiment of naval supply excellence, ensuring our naval forces' readiness and efficiency.
On July 1, 2011, Naval Inventory Control Point's name changed to NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support as a result of a Naval Supply Systems Command One NAVSUP, Enterprise-wide branding initiative where each NAVSUP activity supports the "Global Logistics Support Network" as a node in the network vice as an individual entity. No organization structural changes were made.
