US Navy reconnaissance vessel entered the Baltic Sea

Similar vessel USNS "Maury" US Navy


The USNS Bruce Heezer reconnaissance ship entered the Baltic Sea. According to the data of the international ship identification system AIS, after passing the Øresund Strait between Denmark and Sweden, the ship turned off the transponder showing its coordinates.

Bruce Heezer is officially called an oceanographic research vessel and has on board modern reconnaissance and research equipment that allows continuous mapping of the seabed in a fairly wide strip, process the data obtained and immediately transmit it via satellite communications to the Pentagon.

The vessel is reportedly designed to carry out acoustic, biological, physical and geophysical research. The tasks of the ship are: collecting data on the surface and middle water layers and taking the parameters of the seabed in real time both at great depths and in coastal waters. These vessels can place special radio beacons to track the routes of ships and vessels of a potential enemy.

Displacement Bruce Heezer 5 thousand tons. Length 100 meters, width 18 meters, draft 5,8 meters. Travel speed 16 knots. The crew is 26 people. Up to 27 researchers are expected on board. Home port - Norfolk, Virginia.

Earlier it was reported about the entry of a similar vessel into the Black Sea.

        So, any electronics, when EMP is applied to it, can fail so that the equipment itself will be disabled. And there is no need to diminish the importance of electronic warfare means.

            The Baltic is the domain of the German "trinity" of Ost-class reconnaissance ships. They are visually similar to "Mariato II". Which, however, does not dismiss the possibility and its appearance.

              Much time has passed, in your photo the boat really looks like "Maryata". Our "Maryata" was identified by the signalmen. There was a photo, I did not take it to my archive, the details were erased by time, there was a memory of Maryata and my slight surprise, especially since two years earlier I had seen her in Barents on an internship. That's all, there is no conviction and reason to argue and argue with you - I just say that I remember.

                In fairness, when performing tasks as intended, the flag "does not burn". And, if we add poor visibility (it does not particularly interfere with radio-technical reconnaissance, and even somewhat plays into the hands in terms of, in fact, complicating the identification of the "uninvited guest"), in fact, it is not difficult to confuse. Eh, damn it, "IV" - generally stuffed "to the eyeballs" intelligence monster. Pleasant little.

    An interesting vessel is the cartographer of the seabed (except for the all-band RTR, of course). Eh, such an opportunity would be for peaceful purposes. In the Baltic, how many vessels are at the bottom, and how many of them are interesting with interesting cargo ... divers and treasure hunters from all over the world would be glad to receive such information, but everything will remain under the heading. I understand that another act of aggression, military preparations and an animal grin ... but I wanted to look at it a little differently smile winked

      I am sure if they find ships with gold, then Jimmy Carter may well fit the nuclear submarine and take everything out quietly. And ordinary ships are of no value.

    And what new at the bottom of the Baltic does it want to find? He would have something similar from ours at his side, maybe even an outdated one - let him follow a parallel course and "measure up his capabilities" by muffling what he can and generally putting sticks in the wheels.

        I know . But I think that the US Navy ship is not there to search for artifacts and one hundred and two hundred-year-old wines. He has more mundane tasks, which must be countered by all available means.

          If they came in to trace the laid gas pipes or cables from Baltiysk to St. Petersburg, then for some time it is possible to close some area of ​​navigation by the military. Only this area cannot be made dimensionless. This is the same as our ship was searching for transatlantic cables, the Americans raised a howl and had to curtail the search. And all because our diplomats recruit people with a very sensitive nervous system. Nervous susceptibility is treated by military service, only they, graduates of MGIMO, avoid service and are too pampered.

            What does MGIMO have to do with their attitude to military service? Any US intelligence vessel in our area of ​​interest should be interfered with. Well, if he scouts "ways to build up democracy in the region" along the route SP-1 and SP-2, then he should resist with all his might. If its tasks include accurate tracing of underwater gas pipelines, then this is nothing more than preparatory measures for the inevitable sabotage against them in case of failure of political efforts.

              I joked like this. Somewhere in our country they will raise their voices on diplomats, as they bravely retreat right there on issues of state interests. So I joked about their fearfulness. Unfortunately, this has been going on for a long time, since the time of the last king for sure.

                They act primarily on the basis of the geopolitical capabilities of the state they represent and only, secondly, on the basis of its historical and political achievements. But they are still coping with their main function of preventing war (within the framework of their responsibility)

                  It's good that our rank and file officers and officers act not out of geopolitical possibilities, but to the last drop of blood - at least at the last frontier it is possible not to pump what is pumped at the diplomatic lines. However, the history of the country is full of reverse examples, when military victories turn into subsequent diplomatic ... deceits.

    after passing the Øresund Strait between Denmark and Sweden, the ship turned off the transponder showing its coordinates

    The author is illiterate. Nothing turned off. AIS operates in the VHF band and has a maximum range of 25-40 miles. The information that goes to Marinetraffic is received by coastal stations, mostly amateur ones, with fig antennas.
    Accordingly, when the vessel moved out of the reception area, it disappeared from the Marine Traffic.
    At long distances, the positions of the ships are received via satellite communication through the LRIT system, but this system has a different purpose, and it will not be on a military ship.
