Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light Eighty Four
HSL 84 Thunderbolts

Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light Eighty Four has the Mission to provide ready detachments for deployment aboard Fleet frigates. These detachments provide anti-submarine warfare, anti-ship surveillance and targeting, and general utility support to air capable ships. They localize, track and attack submarine forces; coordinate and control the operations of the task organization or functional force to carry out assigned missions; conduct electronic warfare support operations; engage surface targets during battle group operations in coordination with other forces; and conduct Search andRescue operations in a non-combat environment.

The two HSL squadrons (LAMPS) at Willow Grove and San Diego were decommissioned in FY-2001.
