EODMU 5 Partners with RSN for Joint Training

first_img Training & Education Sailors from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 5 partnered with members of the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) for the bi-annual Miata Exercise that kicked off at U.S. Naval Base Guam Dec. 3.The joint training builds interoperability between the two EOD groups who have a continued working agreement. The exercise will continue through Dec. 14.“This is something we enjoy doing and it enhances our ability to develop and integrate our EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) techniques,” said Lt. j.g. Joseph Lynch, EODMU-5. “They’re a very reputable force with extremely well-developed capabilities. We hope to exchange our ideas and information so we can see how they operate, and hopefully integrate some of their tactics into our future operations.”With the robotics training, EODMU-5 practiced using RSN’s PackBot to investigate a bag with a potential threat, while RNS members used EODMU-5’s Talon Mark II to maneuver around an obstacle and to pick up and transport batteries into a container.Since these movements were done through remote controls, it promoted the use of precise movements and decision-making. These robots help minimize the danger to EOD technicians by allowing them to identify and handle ordnance at a distance.EOD 3rd Class Jacob Trefney said he was glad to work with the RSN and learn from their counterparts as it strengthens the relationship between the two nations.“It’s definitely an awesome opportunity for everyone involved,” he said. “We can see each other run drills, see each other’s equipment, how they use their equipment and the different adoptions that they’ve added.”During the Miata Exercise, EODMU-5 and RSN plan to perform render safe procedures, respond to a simulated threat aboard ship and conduct other trainings at various sites that will help round out their knowledge of explosives handling and response.EODMU-5 deploys and employs tailored EOD units to locate, identify, render safe and remove conventional, chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological, and improvised explosive hazards in order to enable access for joint, naval, and special operations forces within the Western Pacific Theater of Operations and elsewhere, when directed.[mappress]Press Release, December 05, 2013; Image: US Navy December 5, 2013 Share this articlecenter_img EODMU 5 Partners with RSN for Joint Training Back to overview,Home naval-today EODMU 5 Partners with RSN for Joint Training last_img read more

HMS Sutherland returns from 7-month Asia Pacific deployment

first_imgRoyal Navy’s Type 23 frigate HMS Sutherland returned to her homeport at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Devonport on August 10, concluding a seven-month deployment to the Asia-Pacific.Sutherland and her crew got underway on January 9, becoming the first Royal Navy vessel to operate in Asia Pacific in recent years.On her final stop en route home, Sutherland took an opportunity to embark Parents and Children (PACAS) in Gibraltar to enable them to see what their sons or fathers do and experience life at sea.On her way home, the frigate also escorted two Sandown-class minehunters, HMS Bangor and HMS Middleton, both returning from a three-year deployment to the Persian Gulf.The final #CallTheHands pipe of our epic 7 month Asia-Pacific deployment; the anticipation and excitement builds onboard as we head ever nearer to our homeport @HMNBDevonport to meet our family and friends today.#FightingClanAtSea #HomewardBound pic.twitter.com/SNXgcZzuUL— HMS SUTHERLAND (@HMSSutherland) August 10, 2018Sutherland’s marathon-deployment saw the frigate make port calls in Australia – where she championed UK defense industry and helped BAE Systems bag the multi-billion contract to build new frigates for the Australian Navy.After several stops in Australian ports and a major exercise off the east coast of Australia, Sutherland headed for Yokosuka, Japan, where she underwent mid-deployment maintenance before continuing her tasking. After visits and exercises in Japan, the crew sailed to South Korea for port calls.In Singapore, HMS Sutherland hosted UK defense minister Gavin Williamson who attended the Shangri La security dialogue which took place in Singapore early June. The defense minister announced that French and Royal Navy ships would visit Singapore prior to sailing together for a freedom of navigation operation in the South China Sea. Williamson did not specify which warships would be assigned the task nor which disputed territory the warships would patrol.There were no reports and no official confirmation on HMS Sutherland conducting a South China Sea freedom of navigation patrol.HMS Sutherland’s return to European waters was announced in late July by the Royal Navy First Sea Lord, Admiral Philip Jones, who praised the “Fighting Clan” – as the frigate is affectionately – for her action.“In this year of expanding maritime horizons, HMS Sutherland has been a prominent part of our global presence. As she returns to the UK, HMS Albion and HMS Argyll are continuing vital security ops and engagement with our international partners on the other side of the Globe,” the First Sea Lord commented.
