Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station
Cutler, Maine


Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station Cutler, commisioned in 1961, maintains and operates a very low-freguency (VLF) transmitter. With an output of 2 million watts, 20 times that of major radio stations, it is the most powerful in the world. A team of 300 personel coordinate communication with ships, submarines and aircraft on the Atlantic Ocean.

Located on Sprague Neck Peninsula, the Unit's three sections, comprising 3,000 acres, jut out into the ocean west of the village of Cutler, Maine. The site provides a dramatic example of Maine's wilderness scenery; rock-bound shoreline cliffs, hidden beaches, tidal pools, offshore islands, and spruce forests. Cleared for the 26 1,000-foot towers, 2200 acres is maintained as grassland. Sprague Neck Bar has been designates an Ecological Reserve Area for its importance to tens of thousands of migrating shorebirds anually.

The Natural Resources Office participated in the Neotropical Migrant Monitoring Program, sponsosred by the Navy and USF&WS. The coastlines of Maine and New Brunswick were intensively surveyed to determine migration and breeding habitat use by both songbirds and shorebirds. This data will be used to develop long-term habitat management. Military mission precludes public access to much of NCTS Cutler. For information contact: Public Affairs Office; 207-259-8203.

Navy Resource Management

The Navy manages more than four million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetlands along valuable coastlines, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. The location of our real estate holdings makes it imperative that we plan and execute our various military missions in harmony with our environment. It is a Department of the Navy goal to promote an environmental protection ethic within the Navy work force.

The Department of the Navy supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote such programs as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement and Watchable Wildlife.

To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence, the Navy must emphasize natural resource stewardship in every aspect of its land use. It does. Come see for yourself and discover our resources.


The U.S. Navy and Partners in Flight are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of Neotropical migratory birds. For information, visit http://www.dodpif.org, or call Department of Defense Partners in Flight at 540-253-5675.
