BLACKSEAFOR Finishes Bulgarian Phase of Exercise

 

Warships of Black Sea joint task group BLACKSEAFOR headed by Russian large landing ship Caesar Kunikov on Aug 29 had finished Bulgarian phase of the exercise.

Participating ships were Bulgarian minesweeper Priboy, Romanian corvette Sebastian, Turkish frigate Yildirim, and Ukrainian minesweeper Cherkassy, reports ITAR-TASS.

Summarizing results, the exercise director Capt 1 rank Yury Zemskoi pointed out that “the joint naval force has successfully accomplished all assigned tasks”.

The crews carried out life-saving, salvage, and transshipment drills on the way from Novorossiysk to Trabzon and then from Trabzon to Varna.

When the exercise phase was over, Russian and Bulgarian crews paid honors to Russian destroyer Lieutenant Puschin collided with mine off Bulgaria on March 9, 1916.

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.
