ZAZZU

Teame Zazzu tracked emergency response vehicles for rescuing stranded detached groups are used during active field operations during extreme winter conditions. Attached Cat-tracks allow vehicles superior traction in snow and ice.

TZMP responded after multiple feet of snowfall left mountain roads impassible. Blizzard conditions neutralized 4x4 transport vehicles and pinned groups down during the night. Teame members activated at first light, and pulled multiple vehicles from stuck positions as the sun rose.


Together, we can weather any storm
TZ operatives coordinated with emergency response personnel to conduct high-hazard rescues of operational groups in the wilderness environment. Safety and welfare checks were performed on deployed personnel stationed at winter campsites, ready to deliver supplies if necessary. Go Teame!

DEPARTMENTS
All activities conducted by Teame Zazzu are operated under officially designated TZ Departments, each of which performs authorized coordinated action in conjunction with interdepartmental support units as determined by mission profiles, research orders, committee requests, maintenance requirements, unit traditions, and in accordance with lawful orders issued by properly designated legal authorities, training interfaces and partner agencies
Features


SNOWY GETAWAY: A weekend of winter exercises atop snowmobiles riding in formation in mountain terrain.
Keywords: - Readiness - - Exercises - - -
Mounted Patrol team members practiced safe equipment handling, winter navigation, passenger protocols, and mounted search and rescue response on snowmobiles at various speeds and inclines.


OUTRIDERS: TZMP personnel operate from motorcycles as lead or screen convoy elements, light ground deployment elements for extended-distance reconnaissance, aerial drone retrieval, message delivery, or route clearance tasks.
Keywords: - Readiness - - Gear - - DIY - - Motorcycles -
Motorcycles present a low profile, high fuel economy, acceleration profile, and maneuverability, as well as possess the ability to access off-road and navigate high congestion areas. This an make motorcycles a good tool for mounted patrol missions despite a higher risk of fatality per mile travelled than other vehicles. Additional training and situational awareness is key to proper motorcycle operation.


OPERATION ICE LAKE: A relaxing paddle with a K9 amongst the floating ice in an alpine lake is the perfect time to practice cold-water procedures.
Keywords: - Aquanautics - - K9 - - -
Sudden immersion in cold water can cause physiological reactions that can overcome mental focus and substantially increase the risk of drowning. Working with K9 units in near-freezing conditions means planning and taking deliberative action.


SAILS AWAY: Teame members conduct cruising coastal ocean sailing and inshore sailing on small and medium sailing craft.
Keywords: - Aquanautics - - - - Swimming - - Sailing -
Nomenclature and concepts are first studied by reading and discussion in a class setting. Basic sailing skills are practiced in a small personal sailboat. As skills improve, the size of vessel may increase. Aquanautics skills and rescue swimming experience is a prerequisite for TZ sailors.


TZMP ASYMMETRICAL DRONE OPERATIONS: TZMP operators utilize reflective transmissions to piggyback drone signals for consolidated control of multiple air and land drones.
Keywords: - Drones - - - - Rov5 - - Rovers - - Signals -
By tasking the Kazi aerial drone via electro-optical object recognition to the ground ROV5 the drone pilot was able to utilize the rover's PWM radio signal operating at 2.4 GHZ to control both drone assets simultaneously.
