The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) delivers sustained global logistics and quality of life support to the Navy and joint warfighter. It manages supply chains for Navy aircraft, surface ships, submarines and their associated weapons systems. NAVSUP also provides centralized inventory management for the Navy’s non-nuclear ordnance stockpile, supports base and waterfront logistics and operations, coordinates material deliveries, contracts for supplies and services and offers material management and warehousing services. NAVSUP is responsible for many of the quality-of-life programs that touch the lives of Sailors and their families, including Navy
Exchanges, Navy Lodges, the Navy Personal Property Program and the Navy Postal System. NAVSUP also administers the Navy Food Service Program, including the policies and procedures governing the daily operations of general messes afloat and ashore.
NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support (WSS) and Independence Seaport Museum have formed an alliance to guide high school students towards STEM-related occupations through their Educating Acquisition, Global Logistics and Engineering (EAGLE) program. EAGLE is a four-year government-sponsored program for high school students designed to spark passion for STEM education, college majors and career fields. With the guidance of NAVSUP WSS and Independence Seaport Museum mentors, students complete three hands-on projects through the application of an intensive mathematics and logistics-based curriculum: a remotely-operated submersible, a wooden rowboat and a robot. With their finished projects, participants will compete in the Office of Naval Research (ONR)’s SeaPerch competition, compete against each other with their sailboats, and enter the FIRST Tech Challenge, which is partially sponsored by ONR. At the completion of this program, students will have access to a variety of scholarship opportunities through FIRST as well as through local colleges and universities. Additionally, EAGLE participants will be eligible to apply for co-ops within NAVSUP WSS and the Navy.
