USA: HSV Swift Marks Completion of SPS 2013 Mission

first_img View post tag: (HSV) Military Sealift Command-charted vessel HSV Swift (HSV 2) arrived to Mayport, Fla., May 23 to officially mark the completion of the Southern Partnership Station (SPS) 2013 mission.The 4th Fleet initiative, designed to strengthen civil and maritime services’ capabilities to respond to a variety of maritime missions, included teams of Riverine, Seabees, explosive ordnance disposal specialists, Marines and Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) physical security specialists who worked closely with partners in Belize, Guatemala and Honduras to share knowledge and build interoperability.More importantly, it allowed members of the U.S. services and partners nations to build friendships.“It goes beyond our training,” Belizean coast guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Merlon Alvarez said. “When the Americans come, I feel as though we truly become a joint force and a family.”The Swift left Mayport, Fla., in mid-February with its first stop in Belize. From there the SPS mission continued in Guatemala and Honduras.U.S. Marine Corps and Seabee detachments remained in Honduras as the Swift successfully tested an Aerostat inflatable aircraft and Puma UAV that could possibly serve as future platforms to conduct Operation Martillo counter drug operations in the Caribbean Sea.The Aerostat and Puma UAV are equipped with state-of-the-art radars, cameras and sensors that could prove to be useful in detecting Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) organizations attempting to smuggle drugs and other illicit materials (guns, people, drug money) in the maritime and littoral environments. The Aerostat and Puma UAV were testing in actual counter drug operations.“Frankly, these platforms aren’t new to anybody, but it’s technology that we’re putting inside them and the application of these assets to a maritime environment, specifically the efforts of the Joint Interagency Task Force to combat the flow of drugs and other contraband by transnational organized crime, that’s new.” Rear Adm. Sinclair M. Harris, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet, said.Mission Commander, Cmdr. Bob Poling discussed the conclusion of a successful deployment.“It’s difficult to quantify how truly successful this SPS was,” said Poling. “We were able to work closely with three partner nations to improve our abilities to work together and improve maritime security in the Central American and Caribbean regions. More importantly, the professional and personal interactions between U.S. service members and our partner-nation hosts added a level of understanding that cannot be cultivated any other way than to get dirty while working and playing together.”Poling went on to say, “I think we’ve certainly made great strides in ensuring future operations between our nations happen smoothly.”COMUSNAVSO/COMFOURTHFLT supports U.S. Southern Command joint and combined full-spectrum military operations by providing principally sea-based, forward presence to ensure freedom of maneuver in the maritime domain, to foster and sustain cooperative relationships with international partners and to fully exploit the sea as maneuver space in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions.[mappress]Press Release, May 23, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: HSV Swift Marks Completion of SPS 2013 Mission View post tag: Marks Training & Education View post tag: SPS Share this article View post tag: Swift View post tag: Defence USA: HSV Swift Marks Completion of SPS 2013 Missioncenter_img May 23, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: Naval View post tag: Mission View post tag: Navy View post tag: 2013 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: completionlast_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 keys to Syracuse’s 34-20 loss to Maryland

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 20, 2014 at 5:37 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Syracuse lost its first game of the season on Saturday, falling to Maryland 34-20 in the Carrier Dome. Here’s a quick snapshot of why.Missed CommunicationTerrel Hunt turned back just a bit early, he said.He didn’t get the full play call from the sideline. And when Hunt threw a pass where Adrian Flemming wasn’t and Maryland’s William Likely was, it bit Syracuse. Likely’s ensuing 88-yard interception return for a touchdown gave the Terrapins a 31-13 lead after the extra point.It was just the Orange’s first turnover of the year, but it killed a second-quarter Syracuse drive that had reached the red zone. The chance to draw within four points of Maryland’s lead suddenly became an 18-point deficit.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPicked onSyracuse dropped a number of passes — on both offense and defense.Cornerback Brandon Reddish had an interception ripped from his hands by UMD receiver Marcus Leak, who hauled in a long 46-yard reception and set the Terrapins up for points in the red zone.Safety Darius Kelly also got his hands on a would-be interception and nose tackle Eric Crume was in prime position for one as well, but it fell through his hands.The Orange’s offense had difficulty finishing its drives anyway, but turnover could have been the spark Syracuse and the Carrier Dome needed to get back in the game.Not-so special teamsScott Shafer had a decision with the ball inside Maryland’s 10-yard line, five seconds left in the half and a 31-13 deficit— kick a field goaland take three points to go into the half down by 15, or go for the end zone and try to make it an 11-point game.He went for the former. And Ryan Norton missed the 25-yarder, capping an ugly first half and ensuring Syracuse headed into the locker room with little to feel good about.The special teams woes had struck earlier in the second quarter, when Maryland’s punt-block unit burst through the Orange’s line and deflected Riley Dixon’s punt.Maryland set up camp at the 28-yard line and marched into the end zone four plays later to go up 24-13.
