Sailor’s suicide attempt prompts heroic response by sub crew
By: Geoff Ziezulewicz   3 hours ago

The crew of the submarine North Dakota raced through bad weather to save a shipmate’s life after an unidentified petty officer shot himself in the chest with his military-issued rifle while the vessel was underway, according to Navy officials and a post on the boat’s Facebook page.

Cmdr. Mark Robinson, the boat’s captain, praised his crew in the post for their feverish efforts on Friday to get the sailor back to land.

Corpsmen leapt into action to treat and stabilize the man’s injuries, while radiomen kept communications open in bad weather, allowing trauma doctors to remotely lend assistance, according to the post.

The boat’s navigation and driving teams charted the fastest way back to port and cut through heavy seas on their way to the mouth of the Thames River in New London, Connecticut, where they transferred the sailor to a waiting tug.

“From gunshot to ambulance took about 7 hours,” Robinson said in the post. “We drove up the river in dense fog, in the dark of night, with intense rain and wind. It was the worst weather I’ve ever seen for something like this.”

Other crew members helped in other ways.

Some lashed themselves to the boat’s deck in “Pea Soup” fog around midnight to form a human safety net, blocking the weather for paramedics conducting the transfer, he said.

“Sailors dissembled parts of the ship to set up ways to get the sailor off in a stretcher more comfortably,” Robinson said. “When the sailor was lucid, other crew members held a phone in front of his face to let him watch music videos.”

Some stood exposed in the storm to flash lights and help lead the tugs.

“I can’t truly express the amount of heroism I saw in the last 48 hours,” Robinson said in Tuesday’s post. “As a result, the Sailor is recovering from surgery in a hospital in New Haven with his parents by his side.”

“It was a terrible event,” he said, “but the sailors of (North Dakota) are heroes.”

Navy re-up bonus bucks on the rise in '18 — can you cash in?
By: Mark D. Faram   4 days ago



Re-up bonuses are on the rise again, and the Navy’s new plan indicates the service expects to spend nearly $148 million on new selective reenlistment bonus contracts — $25 million more than last year’s total.

With the Navy wanting to add to its manpower over the next few years, the money will go toward enticing nearly 19,000 bonus-eligible sailors to obligate for up to six years. And the service says they’ll be happy if about 7,500 sailors take them up on the offer.

In continued good news, seven new skills are now eligible for bonuses, and another 26 existing skills will see increases.

Good news, however, is always accompanied by some bad, and in this case, award levels of 22 skills will decrease, and seven others will be removed altogether.

All increases and new award levels go into effect immediately, while those decreased or cut from the program won’t see changes reflected for 30 days, giving sailors in those skills time to cash in.

The Navy pays bonuses at five maximum levels — $30,000, $45,000, $60,000, $75,000 and $100,000 — depending on the service’s need for a given skill.

Half of each bonus total is paid upfront in a lump sum, and the remainder is equally divided and paid annually on the re-up anniversary. Award levels also depend on a sailor’s years of service, which determines reenlistment zones sailors fall under.

The complete list of all bonuses is available in NavAdmin 311/17. See who’s in and who’s out in the summary of changes.

U.S. Navy’s Newest Littoral Combat Ship Stuck in Ice for Winter

January 24, 2018 by gCaptain

The U.S. Navy’s newest Littoral Combat Ship, USS Little Rock, will have to spend its winter up north instead of Florida’s warmer waters after the ship became stuck in ice in Montreal.

The USS Little Rock, which was commissioned in Buffalo, New York on December 16, should be well on its new homeport in Mayport, Florida by now, but a delayed departure and colder-than-normal temps across the region means the ship is now stuck in Montreal indefinitely.

In December, the USS Little Rock was transiting the St. Lawrence River on its way to the Atlantic when it suffered relatively minor damage to “feedback cables”, sending the vessel back to Montreal for repairs.

But while repairs to the cables were completed on Jan. 4, cold weather and ice had already set in, making it impossible for the ship and crew to depart. “The ship was ready to depart Montreal, but the extreme cold, subsequent condition of the St. Lawrence Seaway and availability of icebreakers and support ships caused the delay,” a Navy spokesperson told USNI News.

With no thaw expected for months, the cold weather means the Little Rock could now be stuck in Montreal until March, or whenever the ice melts.

“Because of their extended port visit due to the weather and icy conditions, underway testing and assessments will be adjusted and re-scheduled,” the spokeperson told USNI News.

Little Rock is the fifth Freedom-variant LCS to join the U.S. Navy fleet. She was constructed at Marinette Marine Corporation in Marinette, Wisconsin.

The Navy obviously listened to Al Gore and his prediction of ice-free winters by 2017....

NASSCO Delivers ‘Floating Sea Base’ USNS Hershel “Woody” Williams to U.S. Navy

February 22, 2018 by gCaptain

General Dynamics NASSCO delivered the second mobile afloat ‘sea base’ to the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command.

The USNS Hershel “Woody” Williams (ESB 4) is named in honor of the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient recognized for heroism at the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II. Delivery follows the successful completion of sea trials from January 15 to 19.

Construction of the 784-foot Montford Point-class expeditionary sea base (ESB) began at San Diego-based NASSCO in October 2015. The ship is designed as a mobile base to carry out missions including air mine counter measures, counter-piracy operations, maritime security operations, humanitarian aid, disaster relief missions, Marine Corps crisis response, among other missions.

The vessel features an aviation hangar and flight deck that include two operating spots capable of landing MH-53E equivalent helicopters, accommodations, workspaces and ordnance storage. A reconfigurable deck area can store equipment including mine sleds and rigid hull inflatable boats.

Originally called the Mobile Landing Platform (MLP ) and later the MLP Afloat Forward Staging Base (AFSB), the Montford Point-class is comprised of five ships across two variants: expeditionary transfer docks and expeditionary sea bases. USNS Montford Point (ESD 1), USNS John Glenn (ESD 2) and USS Lewis B. Puller (ESB 3) have been delivered to the fleet. ESB 4 is planned to join the fleet in 2018, with ESB 5, the future USNS Miguel Keith to follow in March 2019.

“It’s a privilege to build a ship reflecting the strength, courage and dedicated service of the United States Marine Corps and Woody Williams,” said Kevin Graney, president of General Dynamics NASSCO. “From design through production, the NASSCO team worked tirelessly to make this ship worthy of Woody’s name, while upholding the highest standards of quality and innovation.”

Leonardo Radars for Italian Navy future fleet: LSS, PPA & LHD
DefenseWebTV


Published on Mar 8, 2018
Leonardo provides latest-generation naval systems to the Italian Navy (Marina Militare) for its new multi-purpose off-shore patrol vessels (PPA), its new Logistics Support Ship (LSS) and its Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD).

Notably, Leonardo is responsible for providing the ships with their entire combat systems. These integrate all subsystems including electronics and weapons from MBDA.

In the PPA’s “full” configuration, Leonardo will provide a multi-sensor fire control radar (X and Ka band), a new multifunctional Active Electronically Scanned Array radar with four dual-band fixed-face arrays (operating in C and X-bands), Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) sensors and the innovative new ‘static InfraRed Search and Track (IRST)’ (an infrared sensor that detects and tracks targets using non-rotating optical heads placed around the edges of the vessel to ensure continuous 360 degree coverage). The PPA will also be equipped with Leonardo’s integrated communications system that incorporates multi-band satellite systems and the company’s new Software Defined Radio (SDR).

An Italian "AEGIS" system...I wonder if it, like the Italians, only works 30 hours a week? ;)

CAN THE GERMAN NAVY BE SAVED? || BLACKWOLF 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Mar 10, 2018
In a country where good news stories about the military are few and far between, recent years have been kind to the German Navy (Deutsche Marine). Its vessels had been participating with its allies in counter-piracy operations like Operation ATALANTA off East Africa, and its ships have been involved in refugee rescue in the Mediterranean Sea as well as weapons interdiction off the coast of Lebanon. Pictures of German Navy vessels assisting in the rescue of bedraggled refugees portrays the public face of the Bundeswehr in a way no Eurofighter or Leopard 2 tank ever can.

Paul Allen Exploration Team Finds Yet Another Famous WWII Shipwreck – USS Juneau
March 22, 2018 by gCaptain

The exploration crew aboard Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen’s RV Petrel has located yet another famous World War II in the South Pacific.
The team announced this week that it had discovered the wreckage of the USS Juneau (CL-52) on March 17, 2018 – St. Patrick’s Day – at a depth of about 4,200 meters (about 2.6 miles) off the coast of the Solomon Islands.

The Juneau was sunk by a Japanese torpedo during the Battle of Guadalcanal, ultimately killing 687 men, including the five Sullivan brothers who had all been assigned to the Atlanta-class cruiser.

“We certainly didn’t plan to find the Juneau on St. Patrick’s Day. The variables of these searches are just too great,” said Robert Kraft, director of subsea operations for Paul Allen. “But finding the USS Juneau on Saint Patrick’s Day is an unexpected coincidence to the Sullivan brothers and all the service members who were lost 76 years ago.”

The wreck of the Juneau was first identified using side scan sonar data acquired by the RV Petrel’s autonomous underwater vehicle. Later, the Petrel crew deployed a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) on March 18 to verify the wreckage using video.

The USS Juneau sank on November 13, 1942 after being hit by a second torpedo on its port side, causing an explosion that caused the vessel to break in half and sink in just a matter of minutes. Although approximately 115 of Juneau‘s crew are believed to have survived the explosion and sinking, most later died because American forces were forced to retreat. Ten men were eventually rescued from the water eight days after the sinking.

Despite a naval policy that prevented siblings from serving in the same units, the five Sullivan brothers, George, Francis “Frank,” Joseph, Madison “Matt” and Albert, all refused to serve unless assigned to the same ship.

The finding of the USS Juneau adds to what is now a long list of WWII shipwreck discoveries by Allen-led expeditions. In addition to the Juneau, the team is also credit with the discovery of the USS Lexington (March 2018), USS Indianapolis (August 2017), USS Ward (November 2017), USS Astoria (February 2015), the Japanese battleship Musashi (March 2015), and the Italian WWII destroyer Artigliere (March 2017). His team was also responsible for retrieving the ship’s bell from the HMS Hood for presentation to the British Navy.

Allen’s expedition team was permanently transferred to the newly acquired and retrofitted RV Petrel in 2016 with a specific mission around research, exploration and survey of historic warships and other important artifacts. The 250-foot R/V Petrel is fitted with state-of-the-art subsea equipment capable of diving to 6,000 meters (or three and a half miles).

MBDA Coastal Defence System for Qatar Navy at DIMDEX 2018
DefenseWebTV


Published on Mar 23, 2018
MBDA has a long-lasting consolidated cooperation with Qatar, where a great number of MBDA land, sea and air products are currently in service. At DIMDEX 2018 the Company is showcasing its coastal defence system, which was contracted by the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces in 2016, and that is going to provide Qatar with the latest generation and technology for interdiction of territorial waters, homeland integrity, protection of vital assets and heavy strike retaliation. This system will replace a coastal defence system operated by Qatar and that was supplied by MBDA almost 20 years ago based on the Exocet Block 1 antiship missile. The new system will be able to deploy two different ammunitions: the Exocet MM40 Block 3 and the Extended Range version of the Marte anti-ship missile. The Marte ER version differs mainly from the second-generation of Marte anti-ship missile family with the introduction of a turbojet engine as to achieve a tremendous new effective range.
