The naval presence will continue to carry out “missions ‘within the scope of safeguarding human life at sea, patrol and surveillance of maritime spaces, thus contributing to fulfilling the security and authority functions of the State at sea”.

The Dragon NRP is part of a series of five ships that make up the Argos class. This ship is commanded by Second Lieutenant Vasco Jacinto Viegas dos Ramos and has a garrison of 9 soldiers.
