The Royal Australian Navy Submarine Escape and Rescue Centre (SERC) will conduct Exercise Black CARILLON 16 in the Western Australian Exercise Area (WAXA) from 15 Aug – 16 Sep 16. The focus of the exercise will be practicing and proving established rescue procedures used in the rare instance of a submarine emergency that require the evacuation of personnel from a simulated disabled submarine.
The aim of Exercise Black CARILLON 16 is to demonstrate: the capability of the recently acquired rescue gear ship; the capability of the Transfer-Under-Pressure chamber; the working procedures between the first on site intervention ship and rescue gear ship (MV Stoker) and conduct rescue exercises on a simulated Disabled Submarine (DISSUB).
This is the official Royal Australian Navy YouTube Playlist for the International Fleet Review 2013.
In late 2011, the Chief of Navy (CN) - Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, AO, CSC, RAN extended an invitation to over 50 nations to send a warship and/or tall ship to participate in an International Fleet Review (IFR) to be held in Sydney from 3 - 11 October 2013. The Review is being held to commemorate the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy's Fleet into Sydney.
The IFR is a high profile international event and Navy's signature commemorative event for 2013. Planned in partnership with the NSW State Government and the City of Sydney, it is anticipated that approximately 40 visiting warships and 12 tall ships will participate in this historic event.
