All around.because again we can take what we learn from this, figure out where we need to make some improvements and get it tuned up to where we need it and go forward.TRACK - HSV-2 Swift just completed two counter drug deployments. During its 4 months at sea, members of the Navy, Army, Marines and Coast Guard took part in drug operations and tested out two pieces of new technology -- this aerostat balloon, an inflatable aircraft and the Puma UVA. Both are equipped with state-of-the-art radars, cameras and sensors that could be useful in detecting organizations trying to smuggle drugs.Though the Swift is back at Mayport, Mission Commander Bob Polling says there are still ships that remain in the Caribbean. Although budget cuts are a concern, he added that the Navy will continue to be aggressive and move forward. SOT - 17:14:49:14 There's other assets down there right now so I'm pretty comfortable with the knowledge that it hasn't been left wide open so we will make do with what we have and continue to carry on. LIVE TAG - The Swift will not be used again and it will head back to its home port in Norfolk, Virginia BUT the Swift will be replaced by the Spearhead, which is a joint high speed vessel that has more capabilities than the Swift. The Spearhead is also said to be much more efficient and affordable. LIVE from Mayport, EC, Channel 4, TLS.
