The Transit Security Element under Operation Resolute has undertaken 100 rotations since the Operation began in 2006.

The TSE portion of Operation Resolute is part of the broader Operation Sovereign Borders.

Speaking to Defence News, Lieutenant Claire Duffy explained that TSE members support the ship’s crew to bolster their operational capabilities.

“Transit Security Element personnel join a ship’s company to better enable them to conduct mission tasking,” LEUT Duffy said.

“They have embarked in many platforms including both Cape and Armidale Class patrol boats, Navy hydrographic vessels, major fleet units and Australian Border Force vessels.

“The contribution they provide can supplement up to one-sixth of the ship’s company and provide highly specialised skills including boarding party activities, defensive tactics and security operations in close quarters.
