Significance: The Supersonic Wind Tunnel Building is an aviation testing facility contained within the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Carderock Division Historic District. As the center for naval research, design, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), NSWCCD played a critical role in the design and development of the modern navy. The research facilities at NSWCCD have provided the U.S. Navy with accurate cost effective data on air and sea vehicle performance, and have made possible evaluative changes to improve performance, in advance of construction.
