Joint Typhoon Warning Center served by Lt. J.G. Hersh Rai, an officer of Indian origin

Lt. J.G. Hersh Rai who is of Indian origin is a 2019 United States Naval Academy and a 2020 Purdue University graduate serving the U.S. Navy at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), with the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (NMOC) in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii 

Around two years back, the United States Navy was joined by Rai for the opportunities serving provides.

JTWC and the NMOC

The U.S. Department of Defense agency, The Joint Typhoon Warning Center lies within the NMOC and is responsible for issuing tropical cyclone warnings for the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

Critical information from the ocean depths is provided by the NMOC to the most distant reaches of space and meeting the needs in the scientific, civilian and military communities, as said by the Navy officials.

More than 2,500 globally distributed military and civilian personnel who exploit, process and collect environmental information to assist the Fleet and Joint Commanders in all warfare areas are overseen and directed by the NMOC. 

This assistance offered by the personnel aids the commanders in making better decisions based on assured environmental information which is faster than the adversary. 

Rai’s Efficient Role

Rai said that his role is to provide support to the community assistance and oceanographic analysis efforts for the Department of Defense assets.

He further added that people, Navy equipment and decision-making rely on the technical and tactical advice given by the METOC Officers whether operating in the air or at sea.

Rai enjoys his chance to help others although there are many other opportunities for sailors to earn recognition in their command, career and community. Rai has also completed a thesis focusing on identifying electronic failure in Department of Defense assets. 

Through leadership development, world affairs and humanitarian assistance, along with other sailors, Rai very well knows that he is a part of a service tradition providing unforgettable experiences as he serves as a member of the U.S. Navy.

The LSE 2021

The U.S. Naval Oceanography had participated in the Large Scale Exercise (LSE) that was held earlier this year. 

Providing high-end training at sea and ashore against a challenging adversarial force, the LSE that was held in August this year was a scenario-driven, globally integrated exercise.

A 24/7 watch with an objective for situational awareness of the physical battlespace requirements was maintained throughout the LSE 2021 by the CTG 80.7 Maritime Operations Center (MOC) along with ensuring that the TG 80.7 remained aptly postured for supporting warfare commanders in theatre.

The Maritime Operations Center serves as the Fleet’s primary gateway into the expertise and data that the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography community collects around the world.

To refine how the maritime operations are synchronized across multiple Fleets, the LSE training exercise is conducted by the U.S. Fleet Forces Command, U.S. Pacific Fleet, and U.S. Naval Forces Europe, in support of the joint force.
