StationHYPO.com "Path to Midway" Series Begins May 6th

The Battle of Midway is one of the most significant historical events for the Cryptologic Warfare community and the Navy as a whole. As such, beginning this Friday, May 6, 2016, Station HYPO will be kicking off a 5-week series entitled "Path to Midway."

The series will consist of one post per week and will cover (1) the months prior to America's entry into the war as seen from within the walls of Station HYPO, (2) the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on U.S. forces in Pearl Harbor, (3) Station HYPO's subsequent tracking of the Imperial Japanese Navy, (4) the Battle of the Coral Sea, and (5) the Battle of Midway.

Tune in to remember and celebrate the remarkable efforts of CDR Joe Rochefort and his exceptional team of cryptologists in one of America's most crucial battles.

About Us

The NCMF directly supports the National Cryptologic Museum (NCM), the first public museum in the U.S. Intelligence Community. We think you will agree it is truly a "museum like no other."

Located adjacent to the National Security Agency (NSA) in Maryland, the NCM houses a priceless collection of artifacts that represent our Nation's history in code making and code breaking, as well as a world class library of cryptologic media. The NCMF acquires the best artifacts for the NCM and supports new educational and interactive exhibits.

The NCMF provides exceptional cryptologic programs throughout the year, encourages young minds to explore cryptology and innovation through valued awards, and hosts educational, cryptology-related exhibits at various community events.

As part of the Foundation's partnership with NSA to build the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation - Home of the National Cryptologic Museum (CCEI-NCM), the NCMF also serves as a leader in the field of cybersecurity - striving to provide the best in educational resources and programs.

The NCMF and NCM share a joint three-fold mission to Educate, Stimulate, and Commemorate. Learn more about our MISSION.
