HMAS Adelaide is conducting Aero Medical Evacuation (AME) training off the West Australian coast during Exercise OCEAN EXPLORER 2017. AME is a vital capability to deliver best care to navy personnel, to ensure they can be retrieved from the ship to a shore facility for ongoing medical support.
Exercise OCEAN EXPLORER 17 (OE 17) is a major Fleet training activity led by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), and jointly-enabled by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and other nations’ forces.
The maritime exercise is one of the largest iterations of the exercise held in the West Australian Exercise Area (WAXA) area. OE 17 will be conducted over the period 13 February to 10 March 2017 with the primary aim of conducting high-end warfighting training.
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.
