Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 3rd Class Marqese Jones directs a MH-60S Sea Hawk helicopter assigned to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 23 “Wildcards” to the flight deck of amphibious transport dock ship USS John P. Murtha (LPD 26) during Underway Recovery Test (URT) 10, July 26, 2023. In preparation for NASA's Artemis II crewed mission, which will send four astronauts in Orion beyond the Moon, NASA and the U.S. Navy will conduct a series of tests to demonstrate and evaluate the processes, procedures, and hardware used in recovery operations for crewed lunar missions. The U.S. Navy has many unique capabilities that make it an ideal partner to support NASA, including its amphibious capabilities with the ability to embark helicopters, launch and recover small boats, three-dimensional air search radar and advanced medical facilities.
