first_img View post tag: Navy View post tag: discuss View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Burke View post tag: usa View post tag: Appropriations Bill The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee approved the Fiscal Year 2014 Department of Defense Appropriations Bill to provide $594.4 billion in funds for the Department of Defense (DoD). The bill includes an additional $100 million and report language for the Arleigh Burke destroyer program to fund a tenth ship in the DDG-51 multiyear procurement-a ship Bath Iron Works would build.The bill also included funding for many other investments in Maine. “The funding of another DDG-51 ship as provided in this measure and report language would result in additional savings for the taxpayers which have totaled more than $1.5 billion to date through the multi-year procurement contract. It would also allow the Navy to send another DDG-51 to sea that is capable of performing many roles and missions in support of our national defense,” said Senator Collins, who is a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Appropriations Defense Subcommittee. “I am grateful to Chairman Durbin and Vice Chairman Cochran that the Defense Appropriations bill illustrates the importance the Senate places on this program and our nation’s Navy as a whole.”Senator Collins was able to successfully appropriate funding for, among others, the following defense programs:• $2.4 billion for the Navy’s DDG-51 program, including an additional $100 million to allow the Navy to put the tenth DDG-51 destroyer under contract with the funding included in this bill.• $231 million for the DDG-1000 ships, which are built at Bath Iron Works.The Fiscal Year 2014 Department of Defense Appropriations Bill now goes to the full Senate for consideration.[mappress]Press release, August 2, 2013 Authorities View post tag: Arleigh View post tag: Senate View post tag: US Share this article View post tag: naval defence View post tag: funding US Senate to Discuss Arleigh Burke Destroyers’ Funding View post tag: Destroyer’s View post tag: Defense August 2, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today US Senate to Discuss Arleigh Burke Destroyers’ Funding last_img read more

Focusing on the area in the North Torres Strait around Saibai Island, Bathurst in company with Storm Bay demonstrated the importance of interoperability between government agencies by conducting a combined boarding team insertion to Saibai Island to disrupt illegal fishing and incursions.Australian Border Force and Navy vessels are regularly assigned to Resolute at the same time but it is rare for all three agencies to combine on a joint operation to enforce Australian Fisheries Law, the navy said.Lieutenant Michael Morgan, executive officer Bathurst noted that the combined boarding operation allowed personnel from all three agencies to exchange ideas, compare equipment and familiarise themselves with different procedures.“Combined training ensures we are constantly evolving our tactics and techniques,” Lieutenant Morgan said.Commanding Officer Bathurst, Lieutenant Commander David Shirvington also took the opportunity to re-establish local relationships by conducting a visit to Saibai to meet with the Saibai Island Council to discuss local concerns regarding illegal fishing within the region.
