Naval Air Warfare Center Trenton was the former site of United States Navy facility in the West Trenton section of Ewing Township, New Jersey, just outside the city of Trenton. Opened during the final year of the Korean War in 1953, the center encompassed 528 acres on Parkway Avenue in Ewing, directly adjacent to the Trenton–Mercer Airport.
It was used as a jet engine test facility for the US Navy until its closure per recommendations of the 1993 Base Closure and Realignment Commission (BRAC). Nearly 700 civilian positions were lost, most of which were relocated to other facilities in Maryland and Tennessee. The base's Marine operations were transferred to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
