A MAJOR AVIATION SHORE COMMAND and a Naval construction force mobilization base, NBVC provides airfield, seaport and base support services to Weet operating forces and shore activities. Offering a unique combination of mission capabilities to the Navy and the Department of Defense (DoD), NBVC and its tenants directly employ more than 6,000 civilians, 9,000 military personnel and 1,300 contract workers. Also, NBVC hosts more than 60 tenant commands.
Strategically located in a non-encroached coastal area of Southern California, NBVC is a key element in the DoD infrastructure because of its superior geographical location. The base provides a valuable contribution to the operational readiness of the DoD's total force, including development and testing of new systems, joint war fighting experimentation, training, readiness and homeland defense. Point Mugu and Port Hueneme are seven miles apart and offer a variety of recreation and entertainment options for NBVC sailors and their families. The region offers luscious environmental preserves, saltwater marshlands, 6.5 miles of south-facing beach front property at Point Mugu, providing an excellent location for enjoying bird watching or viewing marine mammals in a natural setting, as well as the restored, historic Bard Mansion at Port Hueneme.
