USS Howard Departs Naval Base San Diego

The Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Howard (DDG 83) depart Naval Base San Diego on an independent deployment to the Western Pacific Ocean, Dec. 2.

Howard is a multi-mission ship designed to operate independently or with an associated strike group. While deployed, Howard will conduct Theatre Security Cooperation and maritime presence operations with partner nations.

“Though the crew will miss friends and families, Howard is deploying at the peak of readiness,” said Cmdr. David Zook, Howard’s commanding officer. “We look forward to serving the nation.”

Howard is named in honor of Marine Corps 1st Sgt. Jimmie E. Howard, a combat veteran of both Korea and Vietnam who was awarded the Medal of Honor, Silver Star and three Purple Hearts during his 27 years of service.

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.
