US Navy Provides Support to Eligible Family Members of Navy Civilians Based on the Island of Honshu

 

The Navy announced in NAVADMIN 094/11, released March 20, that eligible family members of Navy civilians, based on the island of Honshu, Japan, are authorized voluntary departure to the continental United States for a period not to exceed 30 days.

“Navy civilians and their families are an integral part of the total force,” explained Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, chief of naval personnel. “We are going to ensure these families receive our complete support.”

Family members of Navy civilians participating in the authorized departure may be eligible for entitlements and allowances which include:

– Coverage of Travel Expenses: Transportation expenses and travel per diem may be provided to cover the time traveling from the evacuation site to the safe haven location, including time spent processing through a repatriation site.

– Subsistence Expense Allowance (SEA): SEA is based on the local per diem rate and begins the day after arrival at the authorized safe haven location.

– Advance Pay: Employees who evacuate, when authorized, received 30 days advance pay.

– Unaccompanied Baggage Shipment: Evacuees may ship up to 350 pounds of unaccompanied baggage per evacuee age 12 or older and 175 pounds per evacuee under age 12, up to a total of 1,000 pounds.

A primary source of information for Navy civilians and their families still in Japan is the Fleet and Family Support Center in Yokosuka, Japan, which is currently open 24/7 in support of our Sailors, civilians and families.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
