Guided-Missile Destroyer Arrives in Laem Chabang, Thailand

Guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89) arrived in Laem Chabang Oct. 21 for a port visit and to participate in community service events to strengthen ties between the U.S. and the Kingdom of Thailand.

The U.S. Navy extends its sincere condolences to the people of Thailand in the aftermath of the recent flooding that has affected the nation.

While in port, the crew of USS Mustin will participate in community service projects in an effort to build upon existing ties between the two nations. The crew will also engage with their Royal Thai Navy counterparts to build on the relationship they have established with their ally.

“Our ship visited Thailand earlier this year and received a very warm welcome from the Thai people,” said Mustin’s Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Scott A. Tait. “The men and women of Mustin are truly looking forward to return their kindness. We are looking forward to engaging the community in any way we can.”

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.
