The Naval Surface Warfare Center at Crane got strong affirmation and a huge show of support Monday from the Navy’s highest ranking officer, Adm. Jon Greenert, chief of naval operations.

In a short news conference after the tour, Greenert said the work Crane does is vital to the Navy and other branches of the service and will remain so in the future.

“What gives Crane the advantage over other places is, No. 1, everything you do here is relevant and needed today.”

The Surface Warfare Center employs about 3,100, many of them technical or engineering specialists, with an additional 1,500 employed at nearby technologysuppliers. It helps develop, test and maintain a wide variety of electronic and electromagnetic finders, tracking devices and defense devices for military units around the world, at sea, on land and in the air.

Total employment at Naval Support Activity Crane, of which the warfare center is part, is about 5,200.
