VX-1 Air Test and Evaluation Squadron ONE [AIRTEVRON ONE] Pioneers

AIR TEST AND EVALUATION ONE is responsible for the Navy's Air ASW test an evaluation effort. The problem of detecting a submarine in all kinds of weather in the vast ocean area, localizing its position, and then pinpointing the target with enough accuracy to release a weapon is complex. The Officers, men, and women of VX-1 are making an important contribution to the Antisubmarine Warfare effort and the defense of the Nation.

The unit first formed during WWII in response to the German submarines threat.  The response by the United States was the commissioning of the Air Antisubmarine Commander Air Force, Atlantic Fleet, on 1 April 1943 at Quonset Point, Rhode Island.

In order to consolidate ASW evaluation service of air and surface units, the Antisubmarine Development Detachment, comprised of both Air and Surface Divisions, was commissioned on 17 September 1943. By the end of the war, the Operational Development force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, was formed, to which ASDEVLANT reported for duty.

Since 1946, the squadron has undergone three name changes and one relocation. In October 1949, the name changed to Development Squadron One, and in February 1950 to Air Development Squadon One. On January 1, 1969, the present title of Air Test and Evaluation Squadron One was adopted. The long association with NAS Key West ended on 15 September 1973 when the squadon changed homeports to its present location at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. Over the years, VX-1 and its evaluation crews have received numerous awards which include the Navy Unit Commendation, Navy Expeditionary Medal, 3 Meritorious Unit Commendations, 6 CNO Safety Awards, 11 Silver Anchors, and 7Golden Anchor Awards for retention,as well as a variety of additional citations and commendations.
