I had no idea Gunners operated UAV's thought it was just AESOP's, learn something new everyday.

The smaller RPAs (ScanEagle) are operated by the Army.  The larger RPAs (e.g. when we used to operate Heron) were operated by the Air Force with Pilots/ACSOs as the Air Vehicle Operator and AESOPs as the Payload Operator.

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

News release from MARPAC:

Quote
Identity of Canadian Armed Forces member who died in Tanzania released

The identity of a member of Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Regina who died in hospital in Tanzania on April 21, has been released. Leading Seaman Brandon South was en route to Canada for a scheduled leave period from the ship, which is currently sailing in the Indian Ocean. The circumstances surrounding this death are being investigated at this time.

Quick Facts

• Leading Seaman Brandon South joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 2000. He was serving with HMCS Regina on Operation ARTEMIS as a sonar operator at the time of his death. He was based out of CFB Esquimalt, British Columbia.

• The Canadian Military Police are working with authorities in Dar Es Salaam to investigate the matter.

• Operation ARTEMIS is the Canadian Armed Forces’ current participation in maritime security and counter-terrorism operations in the Arabian Sea, which demonstrates Canada’s solidarity with partners and allies as we continue to work together for peace and security in the maritime environment of the greater Middle East region.

Brandon was a big guy in pretty much every sense of the word.  He was a friendly giant, with a big personality that could fill a space, and a big heart that helped his shipmates through any trial.  Rest in peace, Brandon.  Your watch is over.   :salute:

DH's list of possibilities.

1. Full withdrawal of the CP-140M from Op Impact XX June 2017.   Lets call it "Op Pause".

2. Implementation of Taco Tuesday at all kitchens CF wide.  Where ever you are, you know you are getting a taco on Tuesday!  We already have steaks on Thursdays and Fish on Fridays.

3. Implementation of the boot allowance.  This would force troops to think of a different question to ask during townhalls.

4.  Financial contribution to the mission in Afghanistan...

Defence minister on Canada's international counterterrorism effort LIVE
Thx for that.

And now, we have it - highlights mine ...
Quote
The Government of Canada is committed to taking concrete action so that Canadians – and people around the world – can feel safe and secure. As threats to our safety become increasingly complex, it is more important than ever for Canada to work in close cooperation with our allies and partners to protect our citizens.

Keeping with the Government of Canada’s commitment to work with our allies and partners to fight terrorism and bring about greater peace and security in the Middle East and East Africa, Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan and Parliamentary Secretary Jean Rioux today announced an extension of Canada’s contribution to international maritime security operations.

Extending Operation ARTEMIS until April 30, 2021 ensures Canada’s continued contribution to maritime security and counter-terrorism efforts along a vital artery of world trade for the next four years.


Through this renewal of Operation ARTEMIS the Canadian Armed Forces is authorized to deploy a number of maritime assets to the Combined Maritime Forces’ Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150), to bolster security in the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea, and the Indian Ocean.

This maritime region, which spans over 5 million square kilometers of international waters, includes the main shipping routes from the Far East to Europe and North America. Canada’s presence, along with like-minded allies and partners, promotes safe passage for merchant vessels and supports regional stability and economic trade routes.

By denying criminal organizations the ability to smuggle weapons, illicit cargo, and narcotics, CTF 150 is also taking away their access to millions of dollars in funding that could be used for illicit purposes.

Quotes

    “Today’s global environment is complex and dangerous, with threats to safety and security that are increasingly interconnected. The Government of Canada’s renewed commitment to counter-terrorism efforts is vital to building a safer and more prosperous world. I’m incredibly proud of the women and men contributing to the success of Operation ARTEMIS and know that their hard work will continue to deliver real results that benefit not only Canada, but the global community.”

    — Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan

Quick Facts

    The renewal of Op ARTEMIS authorizes the Canadian Armed Forces to:
        Deploy up to 375 personnel;
        Seek command of CTF 150 twice during the four year mandate;
        Provide a Halifax-class frigate once every two years and a CP-140 Aurora Maritime Patrol Aircraft once each year;
        Enforce United Nations Security Council Resolution 2317 related to the arms embargo and the ban on the import and export of charcoal into or out of Somalia.

    The Government of Canada is providing up to $131.4 million in funding to support the four year extension of Operation Artemis to April 30, 2021.

    Canada has been promoting peace and security in the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean region since 2001, first through Operations APOLLO and ALTAIR, and most recently through Operation ARTEMIS, Canada’s contribution to CTF 150 since 2012.

    Canada recently completed its third command rotation of CTF 150 in April 2017.

    The Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) is a multi-national naval partnership established by the United States in 2002. The CMF is comprised of three Task Forces: CTF 150 (maritime security), CTF 151 (counter-piracy), and CTF 152 (Arabian Gulf security and cooperation).

    Over the past year, CTF 150 has denied criminal networks access to millions of dollars from illicit trafficking by seizing and destroying nearly 2,700 kg of narcotics and more than 3,300 weapons.

Well..unless the GoC does this part...we will be right back where we were before they cut the IMPACT Det to 1 tail.   ::)

As one of the Sqn's  skippers commented a few minutes ago on his FB "should I be surprised, or not surprised, to learn about the next deployment for my aircraft on the news online"?   ^-^

I am calling the operation Op Arthritis for NASOs, because that's what we'll have after updating trackers for months at a time.   ;D

Well, from the GoC press release, it seems like they're only sending the Aurora once per year.  So, it doesn't look like a continuous presence there *fingers crossed*.

It won't be continuous, based on the wording.  It looks like it will be a deployment of weeks to months every year.

I'd be shocked if it was anything less than 3-6 months (6 months split between 2 crews). 

Other nations don't just stop by for a few weeks then return home.

I don't think (I could very well be wrong) that anything is happening until 2018.  That means CP-140 in 18, 19, 20, and 21; and CPF in 18 and 20.
