ASHRAYAN-2 PROJECT To rehabilitate the homeless and landless people of the rural area a project named "ASRAYAN-2 PROJECT" was launched by the govt in 1997. This was entirely image description materialized by Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Navy. Since Bangladesh is a country of low land and it has approx 700 KM of coastline, a good number of people live in the coastal area. Bangladesh Navy took all the initiative to build low cost houses In the process of construction of low cost houses. BN uses its ships, various types of small and medium boats, mechanized country boats, trucks and many other means. The total effort of the navy personnel, local administration and the local people makes the Project successful. So far Bangladesh Navy has constructed lots of low cost houses in the districts of Cox's Bazar, Chattogram, Noakhali, Laxmipur, Bhola, Barguna, Bagerhat etc. At present Bangladesh Navy has been given with the responsibility of constructing huge low cost houses in coastal areas under the project called "ASHRAYAN-2".

HISTORY OF BANGLADESH NAVY Introduction 1. With the passage of time Bangladesh and her Navy have grown 48 years old. Today, Bangladesh Navy has more than 80 ships and craft in its inventory. With the pace of development it has acquired three dimensional capabilities. The build-up of Bangladesh Navy, which began after independence has come through the end of sectarian exploitation of the land and resource in time and history.  2. Naval activities in this part of the world were visible since the medieval days. In the undivided Bengal there were ship building industries in different parts of the country specially in Chittagong. Mentionably, a frigate for German Navy was built in 1818 in Chittagong.  3. Build-up of navy in the Indian subcontinent in the machine age began during British rule, however Naval build-up by the British did not touch this part of the land. In post-partition era of the Indian subcontinent i.e. during Pakistan rule, negligence to the maritime development in this part was also prominent. In their consideration western wing always got preferential treatment. A careful study of the historical legacies reveals negligence to the growth of a strong maritime power essential for seaward defence of the country. PRE LIBERATION ERA History of Shipbuilding in Bengal 4. Indigenous Shipbuilding has been a century old tradition in this region. It is one of the early industries developed in Bengal based on its tradition of building boats and sea going vessels. Many countries of Asia and Europe used to regularly buy ships built at Chittagong. Ibna Batuta came to Bengal in the 14th century and went back in a wooden ship built in a dock located at Sonargaon, Dhaka. Such historic ships are being preserved in European Museums. According to the European traveler Caesar Frederick, Chittagong was the centre of building ocean-going vessels during the middle of the 15th century. During the 17th century, a fleet of ships of the Sultan of Turkey was built at Chittagong. During the Mughal period, Bengal is said to have taken the lead in building ship and boats. The Mughal Naval Force had a large number of ships built at Chittagong. The British Navy used warships built at Chittagong in the famous Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. In 1818 the wooden hull frigate Deutschland was built in Chittagong and delivered to German Navy. During the first half of the 19th Century, the shipyards at Chittagong built ships up to 1000 DWT. Muslim Rule in Bengal 5. At the onset of the Mughal expedition for the conquest of Bengal, they felt the importance of navy to conquer Bengal. Mughal Navy's concern was to prevent pirates' intrusion into the Empire's area of interest. For the protection against depredation of the pirates as well as for the conquest of South-Eastern Bengal, the Mughals established naval bases at various strategic points, such as at Bhola, Sandwip, Quadam Rasul (opposite of Naryanganj), Khizirpur and Dhaka (6 miles north east of Dhaka). A Dockyard was also established in a quarter of Dhaka, known as Tanti Bazar.  6. Mughals were weak at sea. On the other hand, the Burmese, in alliance with the superior Portuguese, became invincible in the eastern water and pillaged the districts of Bakerganj and Dhaka for a long time. Shaista Khan was tasked to bring an end to this terror. A large no of boats were built in the dockyard of Tanti Bazar and Vessels were procured from different ports. In a year, 300 vessels were prepared to meet war requirements.  7. The English East India Company resorted to hostilities against Shaista Khan to establish factories in Bengal in 1651. The British exploiting the weakness of Muslim rulers, succeeded over their contenders in establishing their might first at sea and then on land. The fall of Muslim rule in 1757 in the hands of the British marked the end of Muslim rule and pushed the Bengal into an uncertain destiny for 200 years. British Rule 8. The British rulers perceived threat to their interest from foreign powers like the Portuguese and the French through the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean, and therefore, naval build-up got momentum along the south-western and western coast of Indian subcontinent. Royal Indian Navy was established on 12 October 1934 in Bombay and it shouldered local naval defence. Between 1941 and 1943, out of 18 shore bases established by the British, 7 were located in Bombay and 4 in Karachi. Britain did not feel it necessary to develop any naval infrastructure in the north-east part of Indian subcontinent. Partition of Indian Subcontinent 9. With the prelude of partition of the Indian subcontinent, the division of military assets was concomitant. To divide naval assets “Navy Subcommittee” was established consisting of officers from Britain, India and Pakistan.The shore establishment naturally became part of the succeeding states and the Royal Indian Navy ships were divided in the ratio 60:40 between India and Pakistan.   Days Under Pakistan 10. At the time of partition, the Pakistan navy had 92 officers. Despite all difficulties naval development started in the western part of Pakistan leaving eastern part in the waiting list. Only after the 1965 war with India, four Brooke Marine Patrol Craft were permanently stationed at Chittagong harbour as a symbolic presence of Navy. Extended Defence office was established in Khulna in 1965 with some men, and a building was commissioned as PNS TITUMIR in 1970 while NOIC Chittagong was upgraded to Commodore Commanding Chittagong. This upgradation did not follow any structural development rather it was done to delegate enhanced power to exercise at the backdrop of political upsurge. Till the end of 1971, naval development in the East Pakistan was confined either in rhetoric or in deliberations/ discussion at the policy-making level without implementation. 11. Demand for naval development in this part was felt since early days of Pakistan in the political arena of the then East Pakistan. Historic 21 point programme of United Front in 1954 and 6 point programme of Awami League in 1966 strongly raised the demand to shift Naval Headquarters from Karachi to East Pakistan. Bangabandhu through a declaration titled "Our right to live" demanded setting up of a militia or para military force in East Pakistan, self sufficiency of East Pakistan in defence matters, an ordnance factory and a military academy to be set up in the east part with the Federal Naval Headquarters to be located in East Pakistan. Officers from East Pakistan were not given due recognition rather they were suppressed, discriminated and deprived of their due share Lt Cdr Shaheed Moazzam used to keep contact with Bangabandhu Sheikh Muzibur  Rahman and exchanged views with him. He was said to have motivated many East Pakistan Officers in the Army and Air force against the suppression by the West Pakistani Officers. For this, he had to face Agortola conspiracy case (a sedition case) in 1969. He was brutally killed in the morning of 26 March 1971. DURING LIBERATION WAR Birth of Bangladesh Navy (BN) 12. The nucleus of BN was formed in June-July 1971 when a handful of courageous sailors under the leadership of Rahmatullah and A W Chowdhury (later promoted to commodore) defected from Toulon, France, where they were undergoing submarine training. The Bangladesh government in exile, on the advice of the defectees, planned to form a Naval Commando Force. About 357 freedom fighters were recruited from various training camps to join the Naval Commando. At the end of their training, C –in –C Bangladesh Force Colonel M A G Osmani in a brief deliberation to the commandos declared the group as the “First representative of Bangladesh Navy” and he informed the commandos that “time frame of independence would depend on their success”. Operation Jackpot 13. The Naval Commando comprising of these young men carried out attacks on merchant ships with Limpet Mines in Chittagong and Mongla (Chalna) maritime ports. They made 8 groups which was combination of 8 sailors and 500 other members that carried out ‘Operation Jackpot’ successfully in different sea and river ports destroying 26 ships of the enemy and neutralised the sea routes. The Naval Commando inflicted a crippling damage on the East Pakistan ports, inland waterways and shipping. They also caused serious damage to the Pakistani war efforts by sinking ships or damaging jetties and immobilizing of ports and navigable channels. A vast amount of international shipping was kept away from East Bengal ports in spite of the high rates of compensation announced by the Government. The Naval Commando held East Pakistan in a state of siege in the highest traditions of war at sea and that too without possessing a single oceangoing vessel. In four months, the frogmen attained their aim of closing the major ports of Chalna/Mongla and Chittagong, which paradoxically was mined by the departing Pakistani authorities using mines almost on the day prior to their surrender. There is little doubt that the naval commando frogmen accelerated the liberation of Bangladesh. The highly motivated frogmen, mostly students, did not seek any kudos or political recognition or reward except the liberation of there beloved ‘Sonar Bangla’. Freedom fighters from Mozambique, Libya and Somalia eagerly sought the details of these unique riverine naval commando operations of Bangladesh. Operation of PADMA and PALASH 14. Besides commando operations, two pilot boats were converted into riverine patrol craft in September 1971 at Garden Reach Shipyard, Kolkata and named as “PADMA” and “PALASH”.   These craft were manned by 49 valiant Bengali sailors under the command of Indian Navy Officers and deployed in the river routes of Sundarbans. In November 1971, Padma and Palash carried out mining in Zulfiquar channel and destroyed four Pakistan merchant ships and one Patrol Craft. On 10 December 1971, PADMA and PALASH while proceeding to seize control of Chalna port and Naval Base Titumir, came under air attack near Khulna Shipyard and fire engulfed both the ships. Freedom fightersfrom both the ships jumped into river to save their lives. Engine Room Artificer Ruhul Amin valiantly fought to save his ship and embraced martyrdom. Govt. of the People's Republic of Bangladesh honoured him   with the highest gallantry award BirSreshtho for his patriotism and supreme sacrifice for the country. Nation will always remember BirSreshthoShaheedRuhul Amin with great admiration and pride. There were many other heroes whose names have gone into oblivion as there had not been a true record of naval commando actions. However, the BN remembers with honour and pride all those great Freedom Fighters whose undaunted bravery and sacrifice paved the way for the independence of the country. AFTER INDEPENDANCE Laying Foundation of Navy 15. After independence, Bangladesh inherited a barren naval base PNS BAKHTIAR in Chittagong (now BNS ISSA KHAN), a deserted base PNS TITUMIR in Khulna (now BNS TITUMIR) and a transit camp in Dhaka (now the Navy House). Bangladesh did not receive any share of Pakistan Naval assets as the latter received at the time of division of Royal Indian Navy. Ships, repair facilities, logistic support organization, training facilities, all which someone can see today have come up over the last 42 years of dedicated efforts of those who served Bangladesh Navy. Soon after independence, the three services were organized under the leadership of General M A G Osmani. Lieutenant Commander NurulHuq who escaped from Pakistan Navy was summoned by the Prime Minister Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on his arrival and promoted to the rank of Commander and was appointed as Chief of Bangladesh Navy. 16. Three services were separated from the unified command on 07 April 72 and were put under three service Chiefs. It was indeed a horrendous task to lay the foundation of the navy with nothing in hand except 180 dedicated men. There was no uniform, no accommodation, no ship, no arms, no training facility and no organizational set up. The functioning of navy started on an ad-hoc TO& E approved by the Ministry of Defense. 17. Naval Headquarters started functioning in a wing of Army Headquarters with a few rooms. After 7 April 1972, Naval Headquarters was shifted to a wing of old Air Headquarters. But main organizational activities were centered in the navy transit camp at Eskaton (now the Navy House). After hectic efforts, BN received a small piece of land with many jackfruit trees and a few barracks- the present BNS HAJI MOHSIN. The present location of Naval Headquarters is a part of the land; earmarked for FOC (East) HQ of Pakistan Navy was held by Army Ordnance and handed over to Bangladesh Navy after a few years. 18. The first batch of 100 recruits in 1972 was mostly from among the freedom fighters. Their training was conducted at Naval Base Chittagong on make shift basis. Two vessels of Establishment Division of Government were converted into riverine patrol craft and were commissioned on 12 June 1972 and 8 July 1972 at Narayanganj by General M A G Osmani. In their maiden voyage to major river ports, they were cheered by hundreds of people. For the first time Chief of Bangladesh Navy flew flag (a burgee flag with one anchor) on his car. 19. On 16 December 1972, just after one year of independence of Bangladesh, a Navy contingent of 100 men for the first time on the soil of sovereign Bangladesh participated in the victory day parade reviewed by President Abu SayeedChowdhury at SuhrawardyUddan. Instructor Lieutenant Commander A Rouf led the Navy contingent. The Nation and the world formally came to know about the birth of a Navy in Bangladesh. 20. The Navy Chief made his first visit to India on 16 Aug 1972 and his agenda included things ranging from Boatswain's Pipe (a pipe used by ships Quarter Master to signal various activities of the ship by whistling it) to negotiation for Seaworthy Patrol Craft etc. He met Indian Navy Chief Admiral S M Nanda and the Defense Minister Jagjivan Ram who assured him all the assistances and said, "You take anything you need and whatever we can spare". Subsequently Indian Navy spared one Patrol Craft (BNS PADMA). Lt Cdr E Rasool who arrived from Turkey in November 1972 brought the ship from Vizak (an Indian Port) to Bangladesh in 1973 and the Executive Officer of the ship was Lt Bandpadhay of Indian Navy. The ship was commissioned in Bangladesh Navy on 12 April 1973 enabling the toddler Navy to go to Sea. After commissioning, the ship was opened to visitors marking exodus of Jubilant Bangladesh onboard. On 26 March 1973, Lt CdrEhteshamRasool brought two gun boats to Dhaka and Steamed past Sadarghat BIWTA terminal in a Line Formation with BNS PADMA leading.  21. After the liberation war, government of Bangladesh and the then naval leadership felt the necessity of building astrong navy. By this time, in 1973, about 2500 sailors including 30 officers and midshipmen being released from captivity in Pakistan started joining the hands of the new borne navy. On 7 Nov 1973, Captain NurulHuq handed over the duties of the Chief of Naval Staff to Captain M H Khan on his return from Pakistan. In 1974, Naval bases BNS ISSA KHAN, BNS HAJI MOHSIN and BNS TITUMIR were commissioned by the Prime Minister Bangabandhu Sheikh MujiburRahman.   In a ceremony at BNS ISSA KHAN on 10 Dec 1974, Bangabandhu also handed over the Naval Standard to Bangladesh Navy. In 1976, Bangladesh Naval Academy (BNA), the premier institution of Bangladesh Navy for education and basic training of the young cadets, was established temporarily in the premises of Bangladesh Marine Academy at Juldia in Chittagong. By that time, BNS S R AMIN was also commissioned as the first flagship of BN Flotilla. In the wake of this wave, four Patrol Craft were collected from friendly countries and were commissioned in BN. In addition, five riverine Patrol Craft were built at Narayangonj Shipyard with indigenous effort.   Developing Sea Leg 22. None of the above ships were truly sea going; thus, BN was in urgent need of seaworthy platforms in its inventory. The aspiration was fulfilled by inducting BNS UMAR FAROOQ (EX HMS Llandaff) in 1976 from Royal Navy. Subsequently two more Ex RN Frigates were inducted in BN fleet as BNS ALI HAIDER (Ex HMS Jaguwr) and ABU BAKR (Ex HMS Lynx) in 1978 and 1982 respectively.   Induction of these Ex RN Frigates was a milestone for BN as it gave BN an opportunity to train her officers and men in all aspects of naval profession. It also provided blue water capability to BN. Development At Cruising Speed 23. Over the years, BN has undergone changes, not only in size and shape but also in its role, mission and vision. By now BN has around 70 ships of various types and capabilities which include Guided Missile Frigate, Corvette, FAC (Missile), FAC (Gun), LPCs, PCs, OPVs, Mine sweepers etc. Bangladesh Navy entered into missile era by inducting a good number of two and four launcher Missile Boats from China in 1980s. BN missile capability was further augmented when she procured a Guided Missile Frigate (BNS OSMAN) from China in 1988. Induction of a good no of Mine sweepers provided BN mine Sweeping capability which is of crucial importance during war and short of war situation.   For training of the officers and men, BN has developed number of prestigious training institutions like Bangladesh Naval Academy, Engineering and Electrical School at BNS SHAHEED MOAZZAM, School of Logistics and Management, School of Maritime Warfare and Tactics and number of other institutions which are capable of providing world class training to our officers and sailors. Presently BN is also providing training to the officers and sailors of friendly countries.   Leapfrogging 24. In the year 2000, BN added a state of the art frigate BNS BANGABANDHU in her inventory.   Construction, operations and maintenance of this hi-tech man-of-war has given BN tremendous confidence to keep pace with modern day technology. BN has acquired 2 newly constructed LPC’s from China fitted with all modern weapons, sensors and equipment in 2012. BN also acquired 2newly constructed Corvettes from China fitted with state-of-the-art weapon & sensors in 2015.   More 2 corvettes are likely to join BN fleet in 2019. Two refurbished frigates fitted with latest weapons and sensors including combat system have already joined BN fleet replacing two old Frigates BNS ALI HAIDER and ABU BAKR. BN has completed construction of five Patrol Craft (PCs) successfully at Khulna Shipyard (KSY) in 2013. The construction of PCs in KSY gave BN a tremendous confidence in constructing war ships indigenously.   25. The above mentioned platforms with modern outfits have enhanced BN war fighting capabilities to a greater extent. BN capability has been further augmented through induction of two Augasta Westland Helicopters from Italy and two Dornier class Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) from Germany. BN's long awaited aspiration of opening a new dimension - "The Naval Aviation" wing has thus been fulfilled by inducting these much needed air assets.   This has enhanced BN capability in Maritime surveillance and patrol by many folds. Induction of two off the shelf submarines in 2017has transformed Bangladesh Navy into a true three dimensional force making it invincible at sea, both in war and peace.   26. Inspired by the epic success of the valiant naval commandos in 1971, BN has been always striving to acquire a dedicated special force. Finally BN could raise the Special Warfare Diving and Salvage. Within a very short time this force has shown tremendous progress, capable of conducting special mission at sea, air and land under hostile and adverse condition. 27. Bangladesh Navy has witnessed phenomenal growth in last three decades. When it first set the sail it had only two gunboats. Today BN stands all with more than 80 ships and craft. In the recent years it has also acquired three vital dimensions namely SWADS, Naval Aviation and Submarine Arm. Today it has not only pledges to safeguard the national territorial integrity, but it has also expanded its commitment to peace beyond national frontier. For all these, BN pays deep homage to all its predecessors whose relentless hard work and passion could make this happen.
VISION AND MISSION OF BANGLADESH NAVY Setting sail with two gunboats in 1971, the Bangladesh Navy (BN) has emerged as guardian of the national maritime space. Traditionally, her roles are to protect the territorial integrity and political independence, and safeguard the maritime interests of Bangladesh. In doing so, BN has been conducting full range of operations in our maritime domain since our independence. Ensuring safe and unfettered maritime commerce is our obligation as a seafaring nation. In contemporary maritime scenario, asymmetric threats at sea and from the sea generate substantial threats to the; homeland and the sea lines of communication. Therefore, maritime security has become primary concern for the littorals. BN maintains round the clock vigilance at sea for this purpose. BN also conducts special operations against armed robbery, illegal poaching, smuggling, gun-running, terrorism, etc. Today, BN is also engaged in promoting peace through active role under UN Peace Support Operations. Taking account of the above functions, prevailing operating environment, and international imperatives, this vision document is prepared to ensure our force posture through planned capability enhancement. This document articulates our mission and vision with few broad guidelines that will shape our efforts towards its attainment. Vision Bangladesh Navy shall evolve into a credible three dimensional navy capable of maintaining an effective posture across the full spectrum of any conflict at sea. Bangladesh Navy shall also be able to undertake constabulary and benign tasks to ensure good order at sea for carrying out national maritime economic activities. Mission The mission of Bangladesh Navy is to defend the country from threats emanating on, above and under the sea; promote and protect our maritime interest, assist maritime governance and contribute to the diplomatic objective of our nation.

ANTI PIRACY & ANTI SMUGGLING   Anti-piracy operations are constabulary application of military forces involving exercise of universal jurisdiction on the high seas. Within territorial seas, coastal states enjoy such jurisdiction. In our coastal area piracy is widespread and pirates are equipped with modern weapons and craft. The task associated with anti-piracy operation demands robust sea control measures. The other principal form of criminal law enforcement task that involves maritime force is drug interdiction. BN spend a substantial proportion of its time on-station involved in law enforcement tasks. These include interception of illegal immigrants and counter-contraband operations mounted to combat smuggling of a wide range of illicit goods, including weapons and explosives. BN also conducts operations to counter gun-running as a part of a wider counter insurgency operations.

BN CONTRIBUTION AND ACTIVITIES UN PEACE KEEPING MISSIONS 1.       Bangladesh is a peace loving country. This very fact is enshrined in the constitution of the Bangladesh with the foreign policy dictum “Friendship to all, malice to none”. The father of the nation ‘Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’ in his inaugural speech at the United Nation General Assembly back in September 1974 has pronounced this pledge and we are committed to uphold the same at any cost. Based on this principle, Bangladesh on its quest to establish world peace has already made enormous contribution under the auspices of blue helmet. Today, Bangladesh is widely recognized as a brand name in the Peacekeeping domain and she firmly believes that it is her sacred duty to serve the humanity anywhere and anytime.   2.       Bangladesh Navy (BN) on its quest to establish world peace has already made significant contribution under the auspices of blue helmet and widely recognized as an iconic entity in the peacekeeping reign. BN personnel have been participating in UN peacekeeping mission since 1993. So far, 6365 Officers and Sailors have participated in 30 UN peacekeeping missions with utmost sincerity and devotion. A boat section from BN was deployed with Army contingent in UNIKOM post Gulf War-I in 1997 to patrol in the waterways demarcating the Iraq-Kuwaiti border as part of DMZ enforcement. Following that footstep, BN deployed the first independent Force Riverine Unit (FRU) in UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) in 2005 which continued till 2012. In 2005, BN also deployed a Boat Detachment Unit in Ivory Coast (ONUCI) and operated for 11 years in the Lagoons of Abidjan. One Bangladesh Riverine Unit (BANRU) was deployed in MINUSMA (Mali) with 133 personnel, 08 x High speed boat and o1 x LCT for 02 years since 2014. The BANRU was repatriated from Mali on 15 Dec 2015. All those deployments terminated with the establishment of peace and successful completion of UN Mandate. Aspired by the tremendous commitment of Hon’ble Prime Minister, two BN ships were deployed in Maritime Task Force (MTF) of UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) with total crew ceiling 320 in 2010. According to the recommendations of strategic review conducted in January 2017, the ships have been replaced by one Corvette (BNS BIJOY) only with total crew ceiling of 110. At present BNS SANGRAM is operating in the Mediterranean sea successfully. Such deployment to a great distance in the Mediterranean Sea away from the home port is a true manifestation of BN operational and sustenance capability under the UN mandate. Since June 2015, a Force Marine Unit (FMU) from BN has been deployed in UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). According to the Statement of Unit Requirement (SUR), the unit is providing armed escort to UN supply barges by deploying Autonomous Vessel Protection Detachment (AVPD) onboard the barges/ pushers.   3.       Since 2009, BN started deploying competent female officers as Staff Officer (SO)/ Contingent Member. A total of 28 female officers have so far participated in various UN Missions and 07 female officers and  03 female sailors are presently deployed in UN mission (Central African Republic- 03, Western Sahara-01, South Sudan- 01 and DR Congo - 05). BN is trying to maintain the ratio of deploying minimum 15% female officers of total UNMO/SO deployment.  Considering the role of women in promoting peace and security of mission areas, BN will also continue to deploy more female officers and sailors in UN Mission in days to come. 4.       Besides these maritime units and riverine contingents, BN has been deploying its personnel as Military Observer, Military Liaison Officer and Staff Officer in UN Missions including DPO since 1993.  The military observers are performing their tasks in various team sites and Staff Officers are employed in Force Headquarters and Sector Headquarters. Presently, 24 UNMOs and SOs are deployed in 06 (six) different missions. 5.       To carry out the challenging and dangerous activities under distress 04 (four) of Bangladesh Navy personnel have sacrificed their lives as mentioned below:   a.       Ex O No 890192, M Nurul Islam, LS (CD) of Bangladesh Navy was killed in ambush (KIA)  by the local militia in ENGOKI on 25 February 2005, while he was performing the patrol duty with BANBAT-2 deployed in MONUSCO (D R Congo).

Both of these deployments terminated with the establishment of peace and successful completion of UN Mandate. 3. Endowed by the rich experience of those maritime deployments, Bangladesh Navy ventured into a more enterprising undertakings with pioneer deployment of two ships, a Frigate and an Offshore Patrol vessel, as part of the UN Maritime Task Force in Lebanon since 2010. Such deployment to a great distance in the Mediterranean Sea, almost 8000 kms away from the home port, is a true manifestation of Bangladesh Navy’s operational and sustenance capability. Recently, BN has rotated these two ships with two new platforms, with multiplied and diverse capability to perform in a better and efficient manner. 4. Besides those riverine contingents and maritime units, Bangladesh Navy also took part in UN Peacekeeping missions in 29 different countries. At present, about 509 Officers and Sailors of Bangladesh Navy are deployed in the UN Peacekeeping missions as Observer, Military Staffs and Liaison Officers and as contingent members in Western Sahara, Liberia, Lebanon, D R Congo, Mali, Darfur, Central African Republic and South Sudan.
SACRIFICES BN SACRIFICES IN PEACE KEEPING OPERATION   Bangladesh Navy personnel have been participating in UN peacekeeping mission since 1993. So far, 5090 Officers and Sailors have participated in 30 UN peacekeeping missions with utmost sincerity and devotion. To carry out the challenging and dangerous activities under distress many members of Bangladesh Navy have sacrificed their lives. Mentionable that, Ex Official Number 890192 Mohammad Nurul Islam, Leading Seaman was deployed in UN Peacekeeping Mission in Democratic Republic Congo under BANBAT-2 in August 2004. The sailor died during a routine Foot Patrol in general area (ENGOKI) 4-5 km Northwest of Kafe in Congo on 25 Feb 2005. The team was ambushed at 1015 hrs by Militia attack and Leading Seaman Nurul was brutally killed alogwith 08 Bangladeshi troops. Recognizing his supreme sacrifice, UN awarded him with DAG HAMMARSKJÖLD Medal and US$ 50,000/00 for his family. He was born on 05 Oct 1970 in Sheulobonia, Mongla, Baagerhat and was a qualified Navy Diver and demolition expert. He Joined Bangladesh Navy on 06 January 1989. Another Naval person Ex Personal Number 5095 Anowarul Islam Khan, Leading expired on 14 April 2013 on board Bangladesh Navy Ship OSMAN in UNIFIL (Lebanon). Ex Official Number 930479 Mohammad Jahangir Alam, Leading Seaman was deployed in UN Peacekeeping Mission in MINUSMA (Mali) as a contingent member of Bangladesh Riverine Unit-1. He died on 31 Oct 2014 at 0150 hrs. The sailor was born on 12 Oct 1975 in Fazilpur, Teghoria Bazar, Madargonj, Jamalpur. He Joined Bangladesh Navy on 10 July 1993.
JHATKA OPERATION   Hilsha is our national fish. It provides us necessary protein. Hilsha below 23 cm in length is called Jatka. Catching Jatka is illegal image descriptionaccording to the law. But fishermen catch Jhatka indiscriminately thus creating scarcity of Hilsha in peak season. Bangladesh Navy ships had been operating from 2001 to stop Jhatka catch in Bhola, Haita, Ramgati, Barisal, Pathaghata and adjacent area.

ASHRAYAN-2 PROJECT   To rehabilitate the homeless and landless people of the rural area a project named "ASRAYAN-2 PROJECT" was launched by the govt in 1997. This was entirely image description materialized by Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Navy. Since Bangladesh is a country of low land and it has approx 700 KM of coastline, a good number of people live in the coastal area. Bangladesh Navy took all the initiative to build low cost houses In the process of construction of low cost houses. BN uses its ships, various types of small and medium boats, mechanized country boats, trucks and many other means. The total effort of the navy personnel, local administration and the local people makes the Project successful. So far Bangladesh Navy has constructed lots of low cost houses in the districts of Cox's Bazar, Chattogram, Noakhali, Laxmipur, Bhola, Barguna, Bagerhat etc. At present Bangladesh Navy has been given with the responsibility of constructing huge low cost houses in coastal areas under the project called "ASHRAYAN-2".

TRAINING IN BN Training in General Bangladesh Navy (BN) imparts its training in various training bases and ships. BN also takes part in sister services training and various civil institutions training. Naval activities are centered around ships. The ships company i.e. Officers and men assist the captain to keep the ship afloat, and ensure that the ship is fighting fit against multidirectional threat, i.e. threat against surface ship, air craft, missile and even sub-surface threats like submarine and under water mines. This necessitates a highly trained and skilled ships company to ensure proper and effective use of ships equipment to face the challenging requirement at sea. Therefore, Bangladesh Navy always gives high priority on the training. Training Objective The objective of BN training is to develop professional knowledge, ability, leadership qualities and management skills of the officers and sailors of BN to enable them to shoulder higher responsibilities. Training Policy The overall training policy of Bangladesh Navy is governed by Naval Headquarters. Naval Headquarters after analysing the total requirement of courses, approximate yearly intake, and probable change in operational concept, forecast the training requirement through a Fleet Order. On receiving the training forecast, the concerned establishments and ships prepares them accordingly for execution Training Organisation The organisation depends on under mentioned major components of BN Training system: NHQ (DNT in particular). Admin Authorities. Training Ships/Establishments. Trainee Users (Ships/Establishments). Training Auditors {OSTG (Operational Sea Training Guide) & SMWT (School of Maritime Warfare and Tactics)}.
SAILOR BASIC TRAINING   The direct entry sailors normally form the core of the service. From recruitment to the rank of Ordinary Seaman, one does various courses. First of all, on recruitment they attend 22 weeks Boot Camp training where sailors are given basic Naval Orientation training. After that the unclassified sailors are allocated branches according to their aptitude i.e. Executive, Technical, S & S etc. The classified sailors are then sent to various schools for Basic professional training of 26 weeks. The technical sailors go to Engineering and Electrical School and Seaman’s go to Seamanship School and so forth. On completion of basic professional training sailors irrespective of their branch are sent onboard ships for practical application of their theoretical knowledge.

TRAINING SHIPS At present two ships are dedicatedly detailed for the the practical sea training for the BN trainees: BNS SOMUDRA JOY BNS SOMUDRA JOY is the largest training ship of Bangladesh Navy and has the community of officers and sailors with spontaneous dedication, honesty, dignity and professionalism. To be a proud member of this ship, it is a requirement to be professional, smart and disciplined. As a matter of fact BNS SOMUDRA JOY is the first ever platform which was brought from USA. Being the first ever US platform, this ship is quite different and new systems and techniques are incorporated in this ship. The Ship was dedicated as Training Ship on 24 Mar 2016. Basically it renders a wide range of training to cadets, midshipman and sub Lieutenants that includes Basic orientation training, practical ship handling and watch keeping training etc.   BNS CHITRA BNS Chitra was commissioned on 03 Oct 2004 in Bangladesh Navy. The ship is normally tasked with coastal patrol and constabulary duties. Recently it is detailed as dedicated training ship for under trainee officers for practical ship handling. It also conducts regular sortie near outer anchorage and demonstrate various exercises in real time scenario for the under trainee officers.

Training Monitoring Monitoring training is essential to make it meaningful and keeping it on track. The method of monitoring needs to be used consistently. Monitoring increases training effectiveness. The more consistent the monitoring, the more meaningful the training will be. BN training monitoring system also job specific and functions in following process: 1. Inspect the training curriculum to meet the course enabling objectives. 2. Periodic training audit to ensure effective training is imparted. 3. Ensure essential means of teaching along with lesson plans are implemented. 4. Monitoring training allows to reconcile what was planned for training and what was achieved. Quality Control Quality control is a concept to check the products manufactured in certain process. BN has its own method to check the attributes of the training system: 1. Analyse the feedback of courses/training for comparative study. 2. Sort out the deficient points in existing training methods/curriculum. 3. Plan carefully taking in to account the outcomes of comparative study focusing the training objectives. 4. Quality is the key, paying particular attention to that, trainers are being trained to impart quality training to BN personnel.
MONITORING Training is a repeating (rollover) process consisting of four steps: assessment, planning, implementation, and monitoring. Monitoring this process is essential to making the training meaningful and keeping it on track. The most effective training programs that I have seen and implemented are those that have a built-in monitoring system. It does not have to be anything elaborate or scientific. Whatever it is, it just needs to be used consistently. Monitoring increases training effectiveness. The more consistent the monitoring, the more meaningful the information will be. Monitoring training allows you to reconcile what was planned for training and what was achieved. It is very specific to the sport, the performance level of the athlete, the age of the athlete, and the gender. Once a system of monitoring has been implemented, the information gathered must be straightforward and simple so that it can be easily interpreted and modifications can be made easily as needed. The goal of training is the long-term adaptation of the cumulative training effect. You must monitor each of these effects in order to assess the program of training. Monitoring training will allow you to maintain control of the training process and ensure a proactive adaptive response. Planning the training and implementing the training are only two prongs of a three-pronged attack. Monitoring the training is the third Be specific. It is more than just gathering information; it is gathering information you can use. Jan Olbrecht, in his book The Science of Winning (2000, p. 225), gives the following analogy: “Testing a swimmer on a bicycle or treadmill in order to obtain the right information for water training is like taking temperature with a barometer; both have to do with the weather but measure something quite different.” The message is clear: Monitor the training quality for which you hope to achieve adaptation. The question, then, is what should be monitored. The answer is to monitor those components of training that are the focus of that particular training period. It is not possible to monitor too much. You must look at the factors of training stress as well as total life stress factors. Monitoring should be both subjective and objective where possible. Monitor what is practical. It is different for team sports and individual sports. Remember that a team is a collection of individuals. Know what you want to do with the information you gather. Decide how training monitoring will help you. During certain training periods where particular qualities are emphasized, other qualities should be repressed. For example, during a heavy maximal-strength block of training, explosive power and maximal speed will tend to be inhibited. This must be monitored. Perhaps the simplest training indices to look at throughout the training year that can give good objective feedback is a simple jump test protocol consisting of squat jump, countermovement jump, repetitive jump, and stiffness jump tests. These tests can be easily administered as part of training without detracting from the athletes’ performance. They monitor the state of the nervous system. A one-shot battery of these tests will establish a baseline, but remember that there is a learning curve. Performance on these tests will improve with practice. This must be taken into account when establishing a baseline. These tests should be administered frequently throughout training in order to monitor training status of strength, elastic strength, and repetitive power. I want to emphasize that the comparison must be intraindividual and must be looked at serially over time. A preworkout assessment can be useful in anticipating problems in training. It uses a 10-point scale graded from 1 (“I feel great”) to 10 (“I feel absolutely awful”). I use this in comparison with the postpractice training demand rating to see if there is a relationship. My feeling is that this will give me feedback on the residual effect of the prior training session and a window into life stress. Another aspect of the training demand rating scale is that as a coach I will project what I think the training demand of a particular workout should be and I will compare that with the actual training demand as reported by the athlete. The two numbers should be fairly close. If there is a wide divergence, then I really need to reassess the process. The key to this is honest feedback from athletes. They are active participants in the process. I stress that training is not something you do to the athlete; it is something you do withthe athlete. The training demand rating scale will make training work for each athlete. Perhaps the simplest and most effective means of monitoring training is a detailed training log. The log is an athlete’s personal monitoring tool. It should represent the athlete’s input about responses to training. Each log, regardless of the sport or person, should contain certain basic information. The log should monitor factors outside of training: sleep, diet, and other stressors that can have an effect on training. The coach’s training log should be as detailed as possible and still practical in order to isolate variables to identify possible patterns. It should incorporate the following: evaluation of planned work versus work completed, rating of the athlete’s response to the work, and a breakdown of the duration of each training component. The rating of perceived exertion scale (Borg 1998) is another valuable tool, and it can be easily adapted for use in a team as well as an individual sport. It can be used in rating training demand on individual components of the workout or for the workout as a whole. It really depends on how detailed you want to get. Regardless of how you apply it, it provides reliable feedback on the stress of training in healthy exercisers. Perceived exertion is certainly not a new concept. It originated with Gunnar Borg, a Swedish exercise scientist, who designed an RPE scale for use in monitoring training stress in cardiac rehabilitation. Conceptually, athletes simply rate how hard they think they are working by assigning a number to the sensation of their effort. For simplicity and ease of use, many coaches use a 10-point scale that has proven to be effective in the athlete population. Athletes must first be educated on the effort relative to the assigned numerical value. It must be fine-tuned for each athlete in order to provide reliable feedback on training stress. I use such a scale by having the athlete, at the conclusion of the workout, state out loud or in writing the effort of the workout. I have found it useful once I orient the athletes to the scale to allow them to develop their own verbal descriptors for the various points on the scale. This personalizes the process, which makes the information that much more meaningful. Monitoring will also help you assess how the performance was achieved. Two athletes can do the same workout, achieve the same results, and have opposite adaptive responses. One may have to tap deep into the adaptive reserve to achieve the result and the other may require much less effort. That is why it is so important to have additional means of monitoring training. Also monitor readiness for the workout and monitor indices of adaptation.
QUALITY CONTROL While most molecular tests involve unique technologies, the quality control (QC) principles and quality considerations are the same as other clinical lab disciplines. Molecular tests are subjected to the same Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulations as other highly complex laboratory tests. CLIA does not specifically mention a molecular subspecialty, but all the same rules and regulations need to be followed. There are some quality assurance challenges that are unique to molecular, and are different than chemistry and hematology. “We see two types of lab directors that are particularly challenged when setting up a new molecular lab. One is a chemistry lab director with little molecular experience, the second is someone with a research background with little analytical QC experience,” said Joan Gordon, President, Maine Molecular Quality Controls, Inc. No matter what your background, a lab director must become thoroughly familiar with molecular techniques and the associated quality assurance challenges. Here are six steps for quality control in the molecular lab 1. Plan Carefully Before purchasing, developing or implementing any assay, you must think ahead and carefully plan for the possibilities. For example, amplicon contamination is unique to molecular. If you are considering a test where amplicon contamination is a possibility, be sure that the lab can accommodate the physical quality measures. It is pretty standard in molecular to have separate rooms, sometimes under positive or negative pressure, and unidirectional workflow. “You must have the facility space for that test,” said Gordon. “If not, choose another test. If you go with closed systems, which are less open to contamination issues, then facility quality measures are not as important. It’s good to know in advance and plan for that.” 2. Train Properly Molecular lab personnel need to be trained in molecular techniques. The techniques are different from what they may be used to in chemistry or hematology. In chemistry there are many controls and calibrators; in molecular there are very few. Many labs have to make their own QCs, and not all labs have the resources to do so. Your test vendor should be able to identify sources of QC for any test. “You can purchase cell lines, but be careful. Not all cell lines have been characterized, and you can get the wrong answer. Then you are troubleshooting something that is difficult to understand,” warns Gordon. According to Gordon, molecular technologists pipette very small volumes and they need to be very precise and mix carefully. Be sure to have well-calibrated pipettes available. Training webinars are quite popular and offer different aspects of molecular testing such as pipetting technique and other tips for lab directors and technicians. If training options are limited, choose assays with fewer steps that are simpler to run. 3. Know the Risks Before using a new assay, establish that the expected performance is sufficient for the intended use and conduct a risk analysis to ascertain where potential assay failures may occur. It will save time in the long run if you determine how the assay will be validated and monitored for performance. What controls are available to monitor the assay? Be prepared to spend some time locating reference materials and quality controls — they are not as easy to find as in other laboratory disciplines. Are proficiency samples available? Is there another lab you can work with? How will you track the data? Which data will be tracked? What are the risks? How many controls are needed? Where can the test fail? Is there software available to track and analyze control data? Ask yourself these questions and set up a plan in advance. There may be a learning curve when starting out with QC practices in some molecular labs. “Lab directors who do not have a clinical chemistry background may not be familiar with plotting quality control results. They may not have the experience or the education for tracking the QC to identify shifts and trends that can be investigated and prevent failed runs,” said Gordon. She recommends learning how to apply statistical analysis in order to determine pass/ fail criteria, when they should they reject a run, and know when a control is truly out. 4. Consider the Costs Quality control for multiplex tests is an area where costs can be particularly challenging. Cystic fibrosis, for instance, is a 23-assay test system that will look for a minimum of 23 possible mutations. It is similar to an automated multi-analyte chemistry test. Chemistry panels for 23 analytes will have two to three levels of controls for each analyte, such as glucose, cholesterol, phosphorous, etc. “Molecular labs can’t run that many controls for the 23 analytes,” Gordon said. “Economically it’s not possible to quality control in the same way. Labs need to get creative by rotating controls as frequently as possible, or by using or creating multiplex controls, keeping in mind the goal is to monitor every mutation on every run.” Using good quality controls that reflect test performance, and checking for shifts and trends before a test fails, become particularly important when you are watching your budget. Repeating a failed run is an unexpected expense. Contamination prevention equipment, appropriate facilities and a comprehensive quality control plan are well worth the investment. 5. Practice Prevention It is wise to practice preventive quality control. Once you have contamination in the lab, it is very hard to get rid of. Better to plan for it and avoid it at all costs. “If you have appropriate controls in place and tracking every time, running them routinely more than once a month, then you see trends happening. If you see a downward trend as an enzyme is getting ready to fail, you can swap them out or test a new kit before you have failure. That is really important,” said Gordon. Preventive quality control can also mean construction in the lab. Things may need to be juggled around for unidirectional workflow. You may need to raise awareness about the use and placement of personal protection equipment, like lab coats and pipettes should stay in one area and not be moved to other areas. “From the patient perspective, all lab results are important,” said Gordon. “If a patient is having a test for an inherited disease, those results affect the patient and the whole family. You need to get it right.” 6. Stay Current To stay current with quality issues in the molecular lab, lab directors and techs need to utilize various resources. Joining professional societies and networking is also important to stay up to speed with everything going on in the evolving field of molecular testing. Quality is Key Molecular testing and QC is still evolving, but keeping up with quality issues is crucial to the success of your lab. Even from state to state, the regulations and rules can vary. Be sure to utilize the resources above to keep your staff informed and regularly update your QC plan. “Many patients are tested just once in a lifetime for a genetic marker, or perhaps the test has a direct impact on a chemotherapy course for cancer. The benefits of the extra time and extra cost for a comprehensive quality assurance plan far outweigh the risk of an incorrect result,” said Gordon.
SAILOR SPECIALIZED TRAINING Officers in the rank of Lt/Lt Cdr are selected for Long/Specialization courses in home and abroad on basis of merit and grading in OPR as per branches.
