Chawla Base is an Office of Naval Intelligence military facility located in the city of Boston, Massachusetts in the United States, on Earth. It consisted of roughly 44 buildings and for a short period of time, housed the Deep-Space Artifact. It is possible that the name was inspired by Kalpana Chawla, an Indian-American scientist and NASA astronaut who was killed in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster on February 1, 2003.
In October 2552, the base suffered a major security breach when Team Jersey broke into the facility to deactivate the Deep-Space Artifact, which the group believed was broadcasting a countdown which would lead to extreme destruction. The base's perimeter suffered significant damage after the A.I. Durga used an M808 Main Battle Tank to blast a hole to allow the team to escape.
