USS Robin (MHC-54)

USS Robin (MHC-54)

USS "Robin" (MHC-54) was an sclass|Osprey|coastal minehunter in the United States Navy and is the fourth ship named for the robin.

History

"Robin"’s keel was laid on 2 June 1992 and she was commissioned on 11 May 1996, at Naval Station Ingleside, Ingleside, Texas.

MHC class ships are the world's largest glass reinforced plastic (GRP) ships and the first U.S. Navy ships designed solely for minehunting, the technique of locating mines with sonar and neutralizing them with a remotely controlled underwater vehicle. The ship's mission is to clear harbor, coastal and ocean waters of acoustic, magnetic, pressure and contact type mines using reconnaissance, classification and neutralization tactics. The MHC class design integrates modern mine countermeasures technology into a uniquely designed platform with exceptionally low magnetic and acoustic signatures to protect against mine detonations during minehunting operations.

On 1 April 1997, the "Robin" was transferred to the Naval Reserve Force and was subsequently used as training ship for naval reservists.

"Robin" was decommissioned on 15 June 2006.
