USS Carter Hall Arrives in Port Victoria, Seychelles

Sailors and Marines aboard the amphibious dock landing ship USS Carter Hall (LSD 50) arrived in Port Victoria, Seychelles for a port visit, Aug. 25.

The port visit serves to continue Naval Forces Europe-Africa efforts to strengthen maritime partnerships with East Africa nations like Seychelles in order to enhance regional stability.

While in Seychelles, the ship will host a reception for dignitaries and military officials. Sailors and Marines will also have the opportunity to experience the local culture and conduct a community service project at a local school.

“Seychelles is looking forward to having us and we are very much looking forward to being here,” said Cmdr. Gregory D. Blyden, commanding officer of Carter Hall. “Seychelles is an opportunity for our Sailors and Marines to relax and enjoy some well-deserved liberty.”

Carter Hall is part of the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group and, with the embarked 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, is deployed in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet area of responsibility.

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.
