West sends his 236th Navy birthday Message to the Fleet Oct. 12.“Shipmates and Navy families, As we honor the birth of the United States Navy 236 years ago, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all Sailors, civilians and family members for their service and dedication to our great Navy team. Our traditional maritime requirements, counter-piracy efforts and the many non-traditional missions we have adopted in support of overseas contingency operations are making a difference every day. On any given day, we have at least 150 ships and 25 submarines underway, and let’s not forget about our Sailors who are boots on ground. That’s more than 40,000 Sailors who are deployed, on station around the world executing our Navy’s core capabilities of the maritime strategy. From our beginning in 1775 with just six frigates to our present-day highly diversified, modern Fleet with a total of 285 deployable ships and submarines, our Navy is the best it has ever been. Our Navy has remained steadfast and ready for 236 years, and we continue to be ready to answer every call our nation makes thanks to your outstanding dedication and selfless support. I also want to say “thank you” and express my sincere appreciation to our Navy families for your continued love and support of your Sailor and our Navy. You are the cornerstone of a Sailor’s readiness and your role is vitally important. Please take a moment to remember the thousands of our Shipmates who are deployed around the world vigilantly standing the watch, and those who have gone before us in service to our great nation. Happy birthday shipmates … you look pretty darn good to be 236 years old! HOOYAH!”[mappress]Source: navy, October 13, 2011 View post tag: 236th View post tag: Officer View post tag: of View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Master Chief Petty Officer of Navy Sends 236th Navy Birthday Message Share this articlelast_img read more

USCG Cutter William Flores Repatriates 46 Cuban Migrants

first_img View post tag: William Back to overview,Home naval-today USCG Cutter William Flores Repatriates 46 Cuban Migrants March 29, 2013 View post tag: Naval View post tag: 46 The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter William Flores repatriated 46 Cuban migrants to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba, Thursday, who were interdicted in two different cases this week.The first interdiction occurred after Coast Guard Sector Key West watchstanders received notification of a 15-foot raft with 29 people aboard south of Key West, Fla., Saturday. The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Pea Island interdicted the migrants and transferred them to the cutter William Flores for repatriation.The second interdiction occurred after sector Key West watchstanders received notification of 17 migrants on a vessel headed towards Key West Sunday. Watchstanders launched a Coast Guard Station Key West smallboat crew who arrived on scene, safely embarked the migrants and transferred them to the Coast Guard Cutter Hawk. The migrants were later transferred to the cutter William Flores for repatriation. “The United States Coast Guard’s day-to-day, critical missions including migrant interdiction operations remain steadfast,” said Capt. Brendan McPherson, 7th Coast Guard District chief of enforcement. “We continue to patrol vigilantly to rescue and repatriate undocumented migrants who take to the sea, and together with our partner agencies, will vigorously investigate and prosecute migrant smuggling and associated crimes. There is a controlled, safe, and legal means of migration to the United States. Failing to follow this process is illegal and needlessly endangers the lives of migrants and those sworn to protect our borders.”Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention.The cutter William Flores is one of the 58 New, Sentinel-class fast response cutters replacing the Island-class patrol boats. The FRC will be capable of speeds in excess of 28 knots and operating in seas up to 18-feet. Armed with a 25-mm chain gun and four .50 caliber machine guns, the Fast Response Cutter provides lethal homeland security firepower. The speed, stability and firepower of the FRC deliver tremendous lifesaving, law enforcement and homeland security capabilities in the same package.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 29, 2013; Image: USCG Share this article View post tag: Flores View post tag: USCGcenter_img View post tag: Cutter View post tag: Migrants View post tag: Navy View post tag: Cuban View post tag: Repatriates View post tag: News by topic USCG Cutter William Flores Repatriates 46 Cuban Migrantslast_img read more

PSM Bags Royal Navy Supply Contract

first_img The Royal Navy has named PSM as a primary supplier of tank level instrumentation to their surface warship and support vessel fleet.PSM has worked with the Navy for decades and in that time has delivered some inspired solutions based around the ICT 1000 level and Tankstar 260 pressure and level transmitters, to replace existing products obsoleted by other suppliers.By developing these bespoke products, PSM is saving the Navy additional expense that would normally be incurred by modifying tank and cable installations to accept another design of transmitter. Extended and lengthy project lead times that can add cost and complexity to refit projects have also been avoided.The obsoleting of hydrostatic level and pressure transmitters is becoming a common issue faced by many end users, who are being left with insufficient customer service and delivery, or without the ability to directly replace or repair failed products. PSM is increasingly helping customers to solve this problem by offering new transmitters that are mechanically and electrically equivalent to the failed OEM items.Image: PSM PSM Bags Royal Navy Supply Contract View post tag: Royal Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today PSM Bags Royal Navy Supply Contract View post tag: PSM July 31, 2015 Share this articlelast_img read more
