Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light Ninety Four
HSL 94 Titan
Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light Ninety Four formerly in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania 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 and Rescue operations in a non-combat environment.
The two HSL squadrons (LAMPS) at Willow Grove and San Diego were decommissioned in FY-2001.
In its 2005 BRAC Recommendations, DoD recommended to close Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove, PA. As a result, HSL-94 along with all Navy and Marine Corps squadrons at Willow Grove, their aircraft and necessary personnel, equipment and support, were recommended to relocate to McGuire Air Force Base.
