  • A UH-1 helicopter flies past a Bell 206 helicopter equipped with the Office of Naval Research-funded Autonomous Aerial Cargo/Utility System (AACUS) sensor suite. An AACUS enabled UH-1 is planned for next year. The AACUS program is developing an innovative capability that when installed in existing rotary-wing aircraft enables autonomous obstacle avoidance, approaches, landings and takeoffs to and from unprepared landing sites.

  • An F/A-18E Super Hornet from the Argonauts of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 147 launches from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68). The ship is underway conducting Tailored Ship's Training Availability and Final Evaluation Problem (TSTA/FEP), which evaluates the crew on their performance during training drills and real-world scenarios. Once Nimitz completes TSTA/FEP they will begin Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) and Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) in preparation for an upcoming 2017 deployment.

  • Sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) look for a target aboard the USNS Yukon (T-AO 202) as the two ships pull alongside each other. When the ships are side-by-side, one of the ships will shoot a shot line to the other in order to send a messenger and span wire across to the other vessel. Once the span wire is connected, the process of deploying the fuel hoses is set in motion.
