     Helicopter Maritime Strike Wing, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, is an operational and administrative Type Wing composed of the Wing Staff, five Atlantic Fleet Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS) MK III Squadrons (HSL), two Helicopter Maritime Strike (HSM) Squadrons, one local Helicopter Maritime Strike Weapons School Atlantic(HSMWSL), one Surface Rescue Swimmer School (SRSS), and one Carrier Tactical Support Center.

     COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT is responsible for all aspects of material readiness and type training of the units assigned when shore-based, and as appropriate when they are deployed. Although this basic responsibility extends throughout the employment cycle of individual detachments, direct management control is normally exercised only when these units are homeported.

    The unit is assigned permanent duty at Naval Station, Mayport, FL. The HELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT Commander is also responsible for the production and logistics efforts of the Aviation Support Detachment (ASD) Mayport. This activity supports the LAMPS Community’s Maintenance and Supply requirements.

     The Wing is directly responsible to Commander, Naval Air Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet
