    HSC-3, HSC Weapons School SARMM Dual Ship Swimmer Deployment

    220926-N-EV253-2028 SAN DIEGO (Sep. 26, 2022) – US Naval Aircrewmen assigned to Helicopter Sea Combat (HSC) Weapons School, Pacific, hoist a practice dummy to an MH-60S Seahawk helicopter during a dynamic proof of concept exercise in Glorietta Bay off the coast of Coronado, Calif., Sep. 26, 2022. During the evolution, which was overseen by the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Search and Rescue Model Manager (SARMM) component of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 3, the practicality of using two rescue swimmers versus the traditional one was tested, as well as alternative litter deployment and recovery methods in an effort to decrease the time required to affect a rescue, and give future flight crews increased flexibility in a variety of different personnel recovery scenarios. As the designated SARMM, the “Merlins” of HSC-3 ensure that SAR units are fully-qualified to perform lifesaving operations with the responsibility for promoting policy and standardization in SAR training, equipment, manuals and procedures for all rescue capable units and associated medical personnel within their area of responsibility.
