Submarine Tender USS Emory S. Land Visits Malaysia

Submarine Tender USS Emory S. Land Visits Malaysia

Submarine tender USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) arrived in Sepangar, Malaysia, for a port call April 1, continuing the Navy’s ongoing commitment to theater security cooperation and partnership with allied navies and promoting peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific Region.

“I consider it a privilege to visit Malaysia and continue to build our partnership with the Royal Malaysian Navy,” said Capt. Paul E. Savage, Emory S. Land’s commanding officer. “The relationship forged between our two navies contributes to the peace, security, and stability of the region, and also gives our 600 Sailors an opportunity to experience the Malaysian culture and a beautiful country.”

While it is Savage’s first port call in Malaysia, this marks a return visit for many of his crew. Both submarine tenders, USS Frank Cable (AS 40) and Land, visited Kota Kinabalu in the past year. Many Cable Sailors are temporarily assigned to Land in an expeditionary capacity while Cable undergoes a scheduled dry-docking availability in Portland, Ore.

“This will be my third time in Malaysia, and it has always been one of the friendliest and most fun ports to visit,” said machinist’s mate 2nd class Jose Cardona, a Cable Sailor serving aboard Land. “I can’t wait to get out there and experience more of the country.”

While in port, Land will host Sailors of the Royal Malaysian Navy as well as citizens of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Land Sailors will also be participating in community service projects that include visits to a local children’s hospital and orphanage, and possible sporting events between Land crew members and local members of the Royal Malaysian Navy.

“These opportunities will allow the Sailors from both countries to share experiences and develop professional relationships,” said Land’s Command Master Chief James Willis. “These types of international experiences stay with you for a lifetime.”

During the port visit, Emory S. Land will exercise its submarine support capabilities by tending a Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine.

Land, homeported in Diego Garcia, is on an extended deployment and has been in Guam since Nov. 2011 serving as the primary afloat maintenance activity in the U.S. 7th fleet area of operations until USS Frank Cable’s return.

Offshore Patrol Vessels Technology 2016

Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are becoming an increasingly important resource for Navies and Coast Guards around the world. As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance the mission scope for a single OPV platform greatly increases. Policing missions such as Counter-Piracy and Counter-Terrorism operations can be supplemented now by survey and Mine Countermeasure operations simply by swapping equipment on board the ship. This is all done with a greatly reduced cost compared to mission-specific platforms or full scale warships which have greater maintenance and operations costs compared to flexible OPVs.

Therefore SMi is proud to announce that it will be launching its inaugural OPV Technology event which will focus on the new potential for OPVs within this proliferation in combat and combat support technology capabilities. The event will be held in London on the 8th-9th June to discuss how individual nations are working to enhance the capabilities of their coastal fleets as well as the prospect for future cooperation and interoperability.

Expert speaker line up for 2016 includes key decision makers from: US Africa Command, UK Border Force, French Navy, NATO, Italian Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, Finnish Border Guard, TNO, Damen Shipyards, C-SIGMA, IISS and many more.

 

Benefits of Attending:

  • Extremely focused on new technologies available to OPV using nations across Europe and beyond
  • Expert led panel discussions on international cooperation in operations and the future prospect for modular technologies
  • Briefings from leading Navy and Coast Guard officers from around the world
  • Learn about current and future national OPV platforms and how they enhance maritime security
  • Discover how to optimise business potential by working with these countries
