Naval Computer and Telecommunications
Area Master Station Atlantic

Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Atlantic [NCTAMS LANT] was established because of the handling of message and data information as distinct entities rather than related disciplines impeded the information flow in the Navy. The melding of communications and computer technologies led to the integration of these disciplines in the Navy. NCTAMS LANT is dedicated and committed to operate and maintain responsive information transfer systems that provide real-time C4I information support to the Atlantic Fleet.

In November 2000, as a result of a reduction in the functions and tasks of Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station, Cutler, ME and Pensacola, FL shore activities, the claimant realized a reduction in the overall command billet and operating structure and subsequent elimination of overhead expenses by incorporating all remaining work through standing up on site Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Atlantic Detachments.
