It can recover the capsule by itself, with the capsule recover cradle or with the assistance of Orca or Crippen class Tracking/Recovery Ships or the Collins Class Tracking ships. It can sustain full 24 hour Flight operations and Amphibious landings due to its illuminated flight deck and well deck.The Flex deck allows the ship to carry many different things at one time instead of returning to port whenever they need to change things out.

The ship has a ramp leading from the flex deck to the well deck to allow for vehicles to drive down into the well deck and drive onto a landing craft that is mounted on a docking port or in the case of the amphibious exploration vehicle it can drive straight into the water and then drive straight to the beach.
