Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
Naval Support Activity Orlando's mission is to provide consistent, effective and efficient shore installation support services to all tenant DoD agencies enabling their mission accomplishment in a joint services environment. NSA Orlando provides the following capabilities:
The installation initially opened in 1988 as a Warfare Center within the Naval Air Systems Command and in October of 2003 was officially re-designated as Naval Support Activity (NSA) Orlando. Today NSA Orlando is the home of several United States Armed Forces military training and simulation commands. NSA Orlando occupies 45 acres within the Central Florida Research Park.
Today, NSA Orlando provides support to all Department of Defense activities in Central Florida, most of which support military training and simulation missions. It has added the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation, the Army's equivalent to NAWCTSD, as a major tenant unit. The combined government end strength of the base and its tenants currently comprise approximately 120 Active-Duty military and 2,200 civil service serving on or near NSA Orlando. We also serve a community of approximately 350 military family members, 3,200 Joint Services Reserves, and 48,000 military retirees in the Central Florida area.
NSA Orlando is located on the eastside of Orlando's city limits in Orange County, in the Central Florida Research Park adjacent to the University of Central Florida. Orlando is one of the world's fastest-growing cities. It is among Florida's major cities and has one of the nation's lowest unemployment rates. Orlando is a center for digital media and bio medicine. The City has the 9th busiest airport in the U.S. and is warm and sunny all year round. Orlando is the county seat for Orange County, Florida and is considered a relatively high cost of living area. Orlando is also the home of Walt Disney World, EPCOT, Universal Studios, and Sea World which are located just 35 miles Southwest of NSA Orlando.
Due to the size of the installation there is no base transportation available.
