The Royal Australian Navy is expected to receive its new-generation training ship MV Sycamore multi-role aviation training vessel (MATV), built by Damen Shipyards Group, in July 2017. Service entry of the vessel is scheduled for January 2018. As part of the upgraded Helicopter Aircrew Training System (HATS), the vessel will primarily serve as a platform to provide training for the Australian Navy and army pilots involved in naval aviation. The training functions include helicopter deck, take-off and landing operations on the ship's deck, air traffic control, and helicopter (in-flight) refuelling operations. The vessel can be used for other missions, including navigation training, torpedo and mine recovery, target towing, dive support to mine warfare training, and familiarisation for new crew members. It can also be used for unmanned aerial vehicle support, weapon recovery, and humanitarian relief. More at www.naval-technol...     (1 hour ago, by arnekiel )
