fleet operations
Fleet Operations

“Cradle to Grave” support to:

  • Carrier Strike Group Commanders and ARG
  • Joint and contingency operations worldwide

SGOT = 1 AGC, 3 forecasters, 4 asst

MET = 1 forecaster, 1 asst

Onboard personnel work with reachback cells to determine:

  • Optimum fleet maneuvers
  • Flight operations
  • Weapons loadout
  • Target selection

ROGUE WAVES

Catastrophic ocean waves, otherwise known as "freak" or "rogue" waves, are towering waves that can measure 30 to 60 feet in height. While always UNEXPECTED, rogue waves tend to occur more often in particular areas, such as off the eastern coast of South Africa.
