The Center for Information Warfare Training site was established at Goodfellow Air Force Base on August 19, 1966 under the command and support of the Chief of Naval Personnel. In November 1971, responsibility for command and support of the Naval Communications Training Center at Pensacola, the Detachment's parent command, was transferred to the Chief of Naval Technical Training. In September 1973, the Detachment's name was changed to Naval Technical Training Center Detachment. The Detachment's name was again changed in July 2003 to Center for Cryptology Detachment. Subsequently, in January 2005, the Detachment's name was changed to Center for Information Dominance Detachment and in November 2016, is once again known as the Navy Center for Information Warfare Training Detachment, Goodfellow. The parent command is now Center for Information Warfare Training under the Naval Education Training Command in Pensacola, Florida.
