From Fleet beat to Joint Police

Citar
Joint Military Police Station Sydney at Randwick Barracks - staffed by Navy, Army and Air Force members - is a clear example of a tri-service approach achieving the best collective outcome as part of the Joint Military Police Force.

The Joint Military Police Force (JMPF) is the primary contact for all Defence policing matters, providing general duties policing and investigative capability to the ADF.

Officer Commanding Joint Military Police Station Sydney, Lieutenant Commander Sean West Money, said integrating the three services into one unit had come at a challenging time, but his team had embraced opportunities to carry out joint military policing work.

“The biggest challenge has been taking responsibility for one of the busiest and largest ‘patches’ to police, with a force only established in January and, from the outset, supporting Operation BUSHFIRE ASSIST,” Lieutenant Commander West Money said.

“This has also meant the JMPF has been provided real opportunities to do the job that we signed up to do, and in return, our people have shown commitment which has enabled us to succeed and demonstrate immense value to Defence.”

As an Officer Commanding a tri-service unit, Lieutenant Commander West Money has sought to value the distinctions between and cultures of Navy, Army and Air Force.

“My second in command is an Army Captain who is getting an education in Navy-speak and she is teaching me about Battalions, Brigades and Divisions, while our Air Force Team Leaders at RAAF Richmond and RAAF Williamtown are teaching me Airside awareness.

“We are all learning from each other to get the best bits of how to carry out policing in the ADF,” Lieutenant Commander West Money said.

Petty Officer Naval Police Coxswain Jean Metcalf is one of the team at JMPS Sydney and has embraced the new tri-service work environment.

“At the start of the year, I was called out to assist with the Batemans Bay area bushfire assistance recovery, and I worked with three exceptional Army MPs,” Petty Officer Metcalf said.

“We were tasked with running the Command Bus for New South Wales Police to allow them to better serve the public and during this period I was able to learn how Army Military Police work on domestic activities.”

“Being part of the JMPU means I am able to further enhance my policing skills within Defence as we collectively move closer to align with state police forces.”

Naval Police Coxswain, Leading Seaman Kellie Nash has enjoyed the atmosphere of mutual learning that comes with policing alongside other services.

“I believe exposure to different services is instrumental to our development. It is always good to have an understanding of how Army and Air Force operate, so Navy can improve and streamline our procedures,” Leading Seaman Nash said.

“Integrating Army and Air Force practices and attitudes can prompt us to re-think how we do things, which I don’t think is a terrible thing.

“For example, Army have perfected a style of leadership which sees officers putting the team first in all things. Their officers eat, sleep and go home last; I really respect that,” she said.

While they are no longer part of the Command Naval Police Coxswain team at HMAS Kuttabul and have their own remit, the Navy members at JMPS Sydney share a good relationship with their Fleet-focussed counterparts.

“One of the larger changes for Navy has been adjusting to the differences between how the JMPF and Command Naval Police Coxswains operate, but ultimately it’s about being problem solvers and ensuring the safety of Defence members rather than arrests,” Lieutenant Commander West Money said.

“Whether they are posted to a Navy ship or establishment in a Naval Police role, or in a Military Police role in the JMPF, our people are all sailors wanting to protect and serve their peers.”

Final Air Warfare Destroyer ‘HMAS Sydney’ Commissioned In The Royal Australian Navy

The Royal Australian Navy has welcomed its final Hobart-class Air Warfare Destroyer, HMAS Sydney, in its fleet. The commissioning ceremony was conducted at sea, off the coast of New South Wales on Monday, on 18 May 2020.
Xavier Vavasseur  19 May 2020

Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Michael Noonan, and Commander of the Australian Fleet, Rear Admiral Jonathan Mead, were aboard the guided missile destroyer, to officially welcome Sydney into service.

Vice Admiral Noonan told the commissioning crew that Sydney’s history was of a legendary pedigree:

“You will all form part of the HMAS Sydney fabric. You are sailors and officers who will all continue the proud Sydney legacy. It is a great responsibility – one I know each and every one of you is capable of honouring and carrying forward into the future. HMAS Sydney, welcome home, welcome back to our Fleet. Your name once again takes pride and its rightful place in Her Majesty’s Fleet,”


Vice Admiral Noonan
During the ceremony the ship received a blessing and Sydney’s Commanding Officer, Commander Edward Seymour, read the ship’s commissioning order before the Australian White Ensign was hoisted, signifying completion of the commissioning.

“It isn’t often in a naval career that you are part of commissioning a brand new warship, but to do so at sea and carrying the significant legacy behind the name Sydney, is a special feeling for the entire ship’s company. A lot of hard teamwork has led us to this moment of bringing a world-class warship into the fleet and we’re eager to now prove what Sydney can do. She brings an outstanding, Australian-built air warfare capability over an exceptional range and gives Navy a surface combat capability like never before.”


Sydney’s Commanding Officer, Commander Edward Seymour
Sydney is the last of three Hobart-class destroyers built for the Royal Australian Navy at Osborne in South Australia and is based on the Navantia F100 frigate design.

About the future HMAS Sydney


The future HMAS Sydney, third and final Hobart-class destroyer of the RAN.
HMAS Sydney (V) is the final of three ships of the Hobart class guided missile destroyers. Her sister ships will be HMAS Hobart (III) and HMAS Brisbane (III). The keel of Sydney was laid down on 19 November 2015 and launched on 19 May 2018 in Osborne, South Australia.

The Hobart-class is based on the Navantia designed F100 frigate and is coupled it with the Aegis Combat System. All three destroyers of the class were constructed in Australia by the Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance.

Sydney provides air defence for accompanying ships in addition to land forces and infrastructure in coastal areas, and for self-protection against missiles and aircraft. The Aegis Combat System incorporating the state-of-the-art phased array radar, AN/SPY 1D(V), in combination with the SM-2 missile, provides an advanced air defence system capable of engaging enemy aircraft and missiles at ranges in excess of 150km.

Sydney carries a MH-60R helicopter for surveillance and response to support key warfare areas. The surface warfare function includes long range anti-ship missiles and a naval gun capable of firing extended range munitions in support of land forces.

Sydney can also conduct undersea warfare and is equipped with modern sonar systems, decoys, surface-launched torpedoes and an array of effective close-in defensive weapons.

These capabilities ensure that the Hobart-class guided missile destroyers have the layered defensive and offensive capability required to counter conventional and asymmetric threats.

Royal Australian Navy’s final AWD destroyer commissioned at sea


Photo: Royal Australian Navy
The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) has welcomed HMAS Sydney, its third and final Hobart-class air warfare destroyer, into the fleet in the first commissioning of an Australian warship at sea since the Second World War.

The ceremony, conducted off the coast of New South Wales on 18 May 2020, marked the moment the 147-metre long AWD HMAS Sydney (V) became one of Her Majesty’s Australian Ships.
In addition, the commissioning marked a significant milestone in the Australian government’s AU$90 billion Naval Shipbuilding Plan.


“The commissioning of the final Hobart class destroyer not only marks the beginning of a new era for the navy but also demonstrates the success of this government’s Australian Naval Shipbuilding Plan,” Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds, said.

“The navy is now equipped with a new level of flexibility and lethality to protect maritime task groups operating in an increasingly complex region, while also allowing us to work even closer with our allies.”

Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Michael Noonan, AO, RAN, said as the fifth warship to bear this name, the newbuild inherits an important legacy.
“Sydney was technically upgraded during her build to integrate the MH-60R ‘Romeo’ Seahawk submarine-hunting helicopter and her Close-in Weapons Systems, making her Australia’s most lethal ship,” Vice Admiral Noonan said.

“She is designed to protect task groups by providing air defence to accompanying ships, in addition to land forces and infrastructure in coastal areas, and self-protection against missiles and aircraft.”
During the ceremony the ship received a blessing and Sydney’s Commanding Officer, Commander Edward Seymour, read the ship’s commissioning order before the Australian White Ensign was hoisted, signifying completion of the commissioning.

Sydney is the last of three Hobart-class vessels built for the navy at Osborne in South Australia and is based on the Navantia F100 frigate design. She is equipped with advanced combat systems, providing the ship with layered offensive and defensive capabilities to counter conventional and asymmetric threats.

Sydney will now undergo her test and evaluation period where she will integrate into the fleet and navy personnel will develop their proficiencies with her Aegis combat system.
Sydney’s sister ships, Hobart and Brisbane, were commissioned in 2017 and 2018 respectively and all three vessels are homeported at Fleet Base East in Sydney.

The first Royal Australian Navy vessel to be commissioned at sea was HMAS Matafele. The World War II stores carrier was commissioned on 1 January 1943.

uma excelente opção de navios em 2ª Mão, para substituir as nossas VdG, mas só se chegassem até 2026/7, o que eu não acredito, porque, depois da RAN estar agora a efectuar estes upgrades ás ANZAC, claro que as vai manter ao serviço, e por mais de uma década.

Mid-life upgrade completed for second RAN Anzac-class frigate
by Julian Kerr

The second of eight Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Anzac-class frigates has completed an extensive mid-life capability assurance programme featuring numerous upgrades, including the installation of a second-generation CEAFAR2-L active phased-array air search radar.

Work on HMAS Anzac began at the BAE Systems Australia facility in Henderson, Western Australia in September 2018 and was completed in May 2020. Several weeks of sea trials were set to start on 11 June followed by handover to the RAN.


HMAS Anzac (seen here post upgrade) is the second of eight RAN frigates of the class to have completed the AMCAP programme. (BAE Systems Australia )

Work on the third-of-class, HMAS Warramunga , began in September 2019 and is expected to be completed in September 2020. The programme for all eight ships is scheduled for completion early in 2024.

The Anzac Midlife Capability Assurance Program (AMCAP) forms the major work element within an AUD2 billion (USD1.38 billion) Warship Asset Management Agreement signed in April 2016.

Under the eight-year programme BAE Systems Australia, Saab Australia, Naval Ship Management, and the Australian government jointly support the 3,600-tonne Anzac-class frigates until their replacement in the 2030s - under Project Sea 5000 by nine Hunter-class Future Frigates based on BAE Systems’ Type 26 Global Combat Ship.

The AMCAP scope of work includes the replacement under Project Sea 1448 4B of the ageing Raytheon SPS-49(V)8 ANZ long-range air search radar with the CEAFAR2-L.

A última previsão é começar a dar baixa das Anzac a partir de 2029/30 e até 2042/43, ao ritmo de uma a cada 2 anos, que é o mesmo que está previsto para a entrada das Hunter ao serviço.

São bons navios e ajustados à nossa dimensão/necessidade, mas o calendário não é compatível com a nossa urgência.

Eles não colocariam à venda navios apenas 5/6 anos depois de receberem um upgrade a sério (ao contrário do MLU planeado para as nossas).

Steel contract signed for Australia’s new Hunter-class frigates
VESSELS
June 9, 2020, by Naida Hakirevic
BAE Systems Australia’s shipbuilding business, ASC Shipbuilding, has signed a contract with Australian company BlueScope Steel AIS for the prototyping phase of the Hunter-class frigate program, due to start at the end of this year.

Under the AU$2.6 million contract, BlueScope Steel AIS will deliver more than 1,500 tonnes of steel plate to ASC Shipbuilding.

As explained, this is the first of a number of contracts ASC Shipbuilding will award to Australian businesses in the lead up to the Hunter program’s prototyping phase and realises the company’s commitment to use Australian steel for the $35 billion Hunter-class frigate program.

During prototyping, five representative ship ‘blocks’ will be built at the world-class Osborne Naval Shipyard in South Australia.

During this phase, the processes, systems, tools, facilities and workforce competencies will be extensively tested and refined before construction commences on the first frigate in 2022.

“Today’s (June 5) contract signing is the first of many contracts that we will award to Australian businesses in coming months, as we count down to prototyping cut steel in December,” Craig Lockhart, ASC Shipbuilding Managing Director, commented.

“The Hunter program is about more than just building warships; it is about building an enduring and uniquely Australian sovereign industrial capability that will support Australia’s continuous naval shipbuilding strategy for generations to come.”

“This contract is an important first step in potentially supplying steel into the build phase of the nine submarine hunting warships,” John Nowlan, BlueScope Chief Executive, Australian Steel Products, said.

ASC Shipbuilding will design and build nine Hunter Class ships, which are expected to be among the world’s most advanced anti-submarine warfare frigates, for the Royal Australian Navy.

Royal Australian Navy’s Entire Amphibious Force Operating Together For The First Time

In a first, all three amphibious vessels of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), HMAS Canberra, HMAS Choules and HMAS Adelaide, sailed together in formation.
Xavier Vavasseur  23 Jun 2020

This was the first time that the two LHDs and the single LSD of the RAN have operated together at sea. The event occured during a Force Integration Training off the east coast of Australia. The Australian Defence Force is conducting maritime task group training off Australia’s east coast and northern waters ahead of resuming major activities in the second half of the year.
