This is achieved by providing; interdiction and strategic strike; protection of shipping and off-shore territories and resources; maritime intelligence collection and evaluation; hydrographic and oceanographic operations; and escort duties; maritime surveillance and response; hydrographic, oceanographic and meteorological support operations; humanitarian assistance; and maritime search and rescue." ~ http://www.navy.gov.au/organisation.
