    Fathomwerx Laboratory is in Ventura County, California, which is home to a diverse and geographically rich environment that includes public and private universities, a high technology corridor and Naval
    Base Ventura County.

    The naval base includes Point Mugu, Port Hueneme and San Nicolas Island—serving the Pacific Fleet as an all-in-one mobilization site, deep water port, railhead and airfield. The base includes more than 100 tenant commands as well as three major warfare centers (Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division; Naval Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center and Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Division).

    NavalX Ventura Tech Bridge, one of the Navy’s nationwide Naval Agility (NavalX) network of partners, is at the Fathomwerx laboratory at the Port of Hueneme in Ventura County. Fathomwerx formed in 2019 as a public-private consortium and resource for technical innovation and capability transition. The lab includes 60,000 square feet of space focused on rapid innovation, disruption and audacious projects with support engagement, education, experimentation and assessment designed to connect operational stakeholders with technical subject matter experts who might assist in developing solutions to address operational needs. Through strategic partnerships within the region, the Fathomwerx consortium conducts programs that evaluate developing technologies against operational needs in the port and maritime domains, and suggests pathways for engagement, funding, collaboration and implementation.

    The lab consists of 20,000 square feet dedicated to testing, prototyping and innovation; and 40,000 square feet of flex spaces for demonstrations, events and exercises.
    Lab facilities include:
    • Workspaces
