PHOENIX EXPRESS 2016


Participants of Phoenix Express 2016 include Algeria, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States, and will have opportunities to enhance expertise in a number of areas on land and ashore.

The NATO Maritime Interdiction Operations Training Center, in Souda Bay, Greece, will host the exercise control group, managing at-sea operations and practice effective information sharing between maritime operation centers throughout the exercise area.

The at-sea portion of the exercise will test North African, European, and U.S. forces’ abilities to address irregullar migration, illicit trafficking, and movement of materials for weapons of mass destruction.

Participating forces will also work together to practice search and rescue procedures for scenarios where vessels are in distress. Specific scenarios will allow the endorsing nations of Tunisia and Morocco to develop capabilities to detect and disrupt the delivery of materials used to build and develop weapons of mass destruction.

While the exercise is facilitated by the U.S. Navy, senior leaders from North African navies have prominent roles in the exercise. A Moroccan officer will oversee the exercise control group; a Tunisian officer will oversee the CMOC; and an Algerian officer will oversee a five-ship surface action group participating in the at-sea phase.

U.S. units participating include the dive and rescue salvage ship USNS Grasp (T-ARS 51). NATO Shipping Center is also scheduled to participate.

SAS 2016 COMES TO A CLOSE

Story Number: NNS160519-06Release Date: 5/19/2016 10:16:00 AM  

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Dustin Knight, Defense Media Activity


160517-N-HU377-031 NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (May 17, 2016) Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) Ash Carter speaks during a luncheon at the 2016 Sea-Air-Space Expo, the first time in six years that SECDEF has attended the exposition. The Sea-Air-Space Exposition is an annual event that brings together key military decision makers, the U.S. defense industrial base and private-sector U.S. companies for an innovative and educational maritime based event. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Dustin Knight/Released)

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (NNS) -- Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition, The Honorable Sean J. Stackley, brought the 2016 Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition to a close May 18 with a speech during the SECNAV Luncheon held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor.

Stackley spoke about the importance of innovation and moving quickly to get new technology to the fleet.

"We've launched two broad campaign centers, centered on rapid prototyping and advanced capabilities to get at that speed," said Stackley. "We've put our best and brightest in charge of delivering results and we have significantly increased our research and development investments, particularly in those game changing technologies that provide the greatest promise for maintaining our technological superiority. "

Stackley also spoke about the challenges of the Navy and the importance of partnership.

"The partnership that CNO highlights in his design, inside the Navy and Marine Corps with other services, and with international partners; the partnerships we form increase our warfighting capability."

Stackley continued to speak about the importance of partnerships between sea services, government industry, and our allies.

"What makes this partnership strong is our common objectives to protect the nation and to take care of our men and women stationed around the world, at war and on watch, safeguarding our liberties," said Stackley.

Throughout the three-day event, Navy leadership and industry leaders spoke about the future of Navy innovation and capabilities, the importance of working closely with our partners and allies, and equipping and sustaining the sea services.

"It's almost a cliche, but I think this is the best expo we've had," said Jim Offutt, chairman of the Navy League Foundation and former president of the Navy League. "Several exhibitors mentioned this was the most traffic on the expo floor they have ever seen. This is also the best line-up of speakers we have had, each having something meaningful and new to say. Not only are we a trade show; I have heard more and more about the professional development panels and the range of topics that were discussed. Both the trade show side and the professional development sides were great successes."

More than 12,000 attendees had the opportunity to browse more than 300 exhibits from industry leaders and naval commands.

"I was here primarily to see what our defense industry has to offer, what new toys we have out there, what things they're trying to present, and just basically, the latest technology," said Lt. Cmdr. Kemi Elebute, PMS-505, Littoral Combat Ship Office. "I actually enjoyed the expo. This is my first time attending. There was a lot of good information put out. I learned a lot from the contractors that were here, from the exhibits, and from the panels that were given."

Next year's Navy League Sea-Air-Space expo will be held April 3-5 at the same location.

BATAAN TRAINS WITH NEW MARK VI PATROL BOATS

Story Number: NNS160519-14Release Date: 5/19/2016 2:34:00 PM  

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Raymond Minami, USS Bataan (LHD 5) Public Affairs

ATLANTIC OCEAN (NNS) -- Coastal Riverine Squadron Four (CRS-4) conducted well deck operations with the Mark VI patrol boat for the first time aboard amphibious assault ship USS Bataan (LHD 5) May 15.

Two Mark VI boats demonstrated their capabilities by mooring and launching multiple times from the well deck of Bataan, accomplishing a major milestone for the craft.

The first operational Mark VI arrived in Bahrain as part of U.S. 5th Fleet. Once deployed, CRS-4 will utilize the Mark VI to conduct maritime security missions throughout the Arabian Gulf.

Deck Department Division Officer Ensign Michael Klooster, from Cummings, Georgia was excited to train with CRS-4.

"This is the second time Mark VI patrol boats have ever done well deck operations and the first time conducting operations with an LHD-class amphibious warfare ship," said Klooster.

The Mark VI is an 85-foot patrol craft fitted with a Mark 38 25mm gun on the bow, and an ability to reach speeds in excess of 35 knots. The craft will provide the Navy the continued ability to patrol waterways for the purpose of protecting coalition forces and vital infrastructure.

"We need to continue doing these operations because they are extremely beneficial to us," said Klooster. This will allow us to be more adaptable and support further operations when we deploy overseas. The Mark VI patrol boats are extremely cool pieces of machinery; they are extremely useful to the Navy's warfighting mission."

According to Klooster, the boats are versatile enough to fit inside the well deck; thus, they can be transported to any location in a short period of time. The crafts are also provided with kickstands to help deck department when conducting boat operations.

"Not only do these boats come into the well deck, they actually have kickstands that are manually operated and lowered so they sit in the well instead of having all kinds of shoring and everything done to hold it in place," said Klooster.

The Coastal Riverine Force (CRF) operates in harbors, rivers, bays across the littorals and ashore. The primary mission of CRF is to conduct maritime security operations across all phases of military operations by defending high value assets, critical maritime infrastructure, ports and harbors both inland and on coastal waterways against enemies and when commanded conduct offensive combat operations.

CANADA - QUEBEC : DE NOUVELLES COULEURS POUR LA SQ
 

Le vert olive, la couleur des uniformes des agents de la Sûreté du Québec

Suivre @VinceLarouche

Élément distinctif du paysage québécois depuis 54 ans, le vert olive des uniformes et véhicules de la Sûreté du Québec (SQ) disparaîtra bientôt du décor. La Presse a appris que le corps policier abandonnera sa couleur emblématique pour revêtir de nouveaux habits aux teintes jugées plus modernes. Rolling Eyes = Ce changement ressemble, comme aux Etats-Unis à une police fédéralisée annonçant une nouvelle ère pour le Québec.


La couleur présentement favorisée par la SQ serait le noir ou un bleu marine très foncé, semblable à celui qui a été popularisé par plusieurs corps policiers américains comme celui de New York.

Selon nos sources, la couleur présentement favorisée serait le noir ou un bleu marine très foncé. Des patrons de couture seraient déjà prêts, mais pour le moment, ils sont gardés jalousement par la haute direction.

Une «marque de commerce»

Depuis sa nomination en octobre 2014, le directeur général de la SQ, Martin Prud'homme, parle ouvertement du besoin de donner un coup de jeune à l'image de l'organisme, notamment en délaissant son vert olive caractéristique, qu'il juge plutôt ingrat.

Cela fera 30 ans l'an prochain que la SQ a mené la dernière grande refonte des uniformes de travail. À cette occasion, le couturier montréalais de renommée internationale Simon Chang s'était livré à une étude approfondie avant de dessiner des vêtements qui se voulaient de leur temps.

Mais ses directives étaient claires : pas question de toucher au vert olive, adopté 25 ans plus tôt lors de la grande réorganisation de ce qu'on appelait encore la Sûreté provinciale, afin de marquer la rupture avec « l'ancienne police » d'avant les années 60.

« Le vert olive nous distingue. Il est fonctionnel, facile d'entretien et beau lorsqu'il est bien porté », estime Jacques Beaudoin, ancien directeur général de la SQ, cité dans La Presse du 4 février 1987.

Le grand patron du corps policier ajoutait que cette couleur était devenue la « marque de commerce » de la SQ.

Des coûts à prendre en compte

Une annonce officielle doit avoir lieu sous peu pour dévoiler les nouvelles couleurs et les échéanciers de remplacement des uniformes et véhicules. Un uniforme de patrouilleur coûte au bas mot 300 $ et le corps policier est en période de restrictions budgétaires. Déjà, sur Facebook, des policiers commentent les rumeurs sur les uniformes et certains évoquent le coût potentiel d'un changement.

Après 1987, l'adoption des nouveaux uniformes s'était faite à coût nul, car ils avaient été introduits progressivement à mesure que des agents remplaçaient les pièces défraîchies. En revanche, lorsque la couleur verte avait été introduite d'un coup en 1962, des dépenses importantes avaient été nécessaires.

Joint par La Presse hier, l'ancien directeur général Serge Barbeau a toutefois souligné que le fait d'avoir une couleur très distinctive entraînait en soi des frais supplémentaires à l'époque où il était cadre de l'organisation.

« Pour confectionner les uniformes de la Sûreté, ç'a toujours été complexe et assez onéreux. Nous n'avions pas une couleur si populaire, si bien qu'il fallait nous-mêmes fournir le tissu aux confectionneurs qui n'étaient pas capables d'avoir la couleur exacte. Il fallait vraiment que ce soit la bonne teinte : je me souviens qu'on a déjà refusé des ballots complets, car ce n'était pas la bonne », se souvient-il.

Chose certaine, un changement d'uniforme fait toujours beaucoup jaser, tant chez les policiers actifs que chez les retraités, dit-il. « C'est une organisation fière et la couleur de l'uniforme, ça fait partie de notre héritage, de notre vécu. C'est sûr qu'il y a un attachement. »

'STRONG COMMITMENT FROM NATO' IN AFGHANISTAN, DUNFORD SAYS

By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media Activity

ABOARD A MILITARY AIRCRAFT, May 20, 2016 — After discussing the Resolute Support mission during the NATO's Military Committee/Chiefs of Defense session in Brussels this week, Joint Chiefs Chairman Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford said he detects among allied nations "a strong commitment to finish what they started" in Afghanistan.

"I think most NATO nations have invested quite a bit, and everybody is interested in landing this in a good place,” he said.

Army Gen. John Nicholson, commander of the Resolute Support Mission, briefed the chiefs on the strategy in Afghanistan in 2016 and talked about the strategy for 2017, Dunford told reporters traveling with him.

Current Ops in Afghanistan

Nicholson also gave a campaign update to all of the alliance members plus partners who have troops supporting the effort in Afghanistan.

“The Afghans have been very aggressive this year in going after the Taliban early, so they understood what the Taliban campaign plan was for the summer,” Dunford said. “What we think is the Afghans did some preemptive operations to break that up.”

The chairman mentioned that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has been under enormous pressure in Afghanistan, and Taliban forces took on the foreign terror group causing “quite a bit” of ISIL attrition.

Czech Gen. Petr Pavel, NATO's Military Committee chairman, said yesterday that he expected the European allies and partners to maintain about the same number of forces in the train-and-assist mission in Afghanistan next year.

Comprehensive Commitment

Dunford said he was pleasantly surprised by the attitude of his fellow chiefs of defense, and the will of American forces remains strong, too.

“Special operators, aviation units, human exploitation units, intel units have all been running pretty hard,” he said. “I ask the question and … what I sense is when they know what the mission is, and they believe in it and are committed, they keep wanting to run.”

U.S. leaders across the spectrum are keeping an eye on the deployment-to-dwell time, Dunford said. “From a readiness perspective, it is really two issues,” he said. “One is the human factor, and then there is the capability development factor –- you need time between deployments to reset.”

In infantry terms, Dunford wants “sustained rate of fire -- not a cyclic rate of fire.” The cyclic rate means the gunner jams his finger on trigger until the barrel burns out. Short, aimed bursts allow a weapon to be used far longer.

Defense leaders continue the conversation with President Barack Obama about troop levels in Afghanistan. Now there are 9,800 troops in the country, and they will remain there through the year. The plan calls for that number to drop to 5,500 at the end of 2016.

“General Nicholson has not provided a recommendation for 2017 that is different from the decision that has been made,” the chairman said. “At some point in the future, we will talk about that with the president.”

NATO allies are concerned about the number of American forces dropping, Dunford said.

“The biggest thing they were concerned about was enabling capability, especially the lift and sustainment capability,” he said. “I was able to tell them that was inside of the 5,500 that we would go to, and [we would] still have the ability to do the intelligence, the strategic lift, medevac support, the aviation capability.”

UN ENVOY TO IRAQ URGES UNITY IN ANTI-DAESH FIGHT AMID PROTESTS IN BAGHDAD

The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) expressed concern on Saturday about demonstrations the day before, when protesters proke into the prime minister's headquarters.
UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) – Dozens injuries were reported Friday when Iraqi security forces fired at and deployed tear gas on Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone that houses Prime Minister Haider Abadi’s headquarters and foreign embassies.

"Restoring calm is key for Iraq to be able to move forward in finding a political solution based on inclusive consultations to resume the work of the united parliament to confirm without delay a reformed government that is able and willing to proceed with the reforms that will address the priorities and challenges the country and the people face, first of all fighting Daesh in unity," the UN's Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq Jan Kubis said.

Demonstrators broke into the headquarters of the prime minister, reportedly prompting Iraqi authorities to announce a curfew in Baghdad. "Only the enemies of Iraq, Daesh at the forefront, benefit from chaos. We are certain the patriotic Iraqis will not allow this to happen," Kubis stressed in the statement published on UNAMI's Facebook page.

Last month, demonstrators assaulted the Iraqi parliamentary building demanding large-scale reforms and protesting against corruption. The protests are being reportedly led by Shia Cleric Muqtada Sadr with the goal of replacing cabinet ministers in the Abadi government with technocrats.

IN CAIRO, UN SECURITY COUNCIL CONSULTS WITH ARAB LEAGUE ON REGIONAL, GLOBAL ISSUES


United Nations Security Council meets in Cairo, Egypt, with League of Arab States. Photo: UNIC Cairo

21 May 2016 – The United Nations Security Council today held an unprecedented consultative meeting in Cairo with delegations of member States of the League of Arab States, discussing, among others, developments of the Palestinian issue, the Middle East peace process, updates on the situation in both Libya and Somalia.

The mission, led by Amr Abul Atta, the Permanent representative of Egypt to the United Nations and current Council President, arrived in the Egyptian capital from Nairobi, Kenya, after a brief visit to Somalia to discuss preparations for elections there in August and lend support to the process.

Among the other issues discussed with Arab League members were the challenges posed by the surging numbers of refugees, displaced persons and illegal immigrants.

After a meeting with Arab League Secretary General Nabil El Araby, the joint consultative meeting between delegations of the two entities was held under the co-chairmanship of Egypt as Council President and Bahrain, which chairs the current session of the League of Arab States.

The meeting opened with a keynote address in which Mr. El Araby stressed the importance of enhancing cooperation and coordination between the UN and League of Arab States on various issues, particularly those relating to international peace and security, and stability in the Arab region and around the world. Many representatives from both sides urged that such consultative meetings become regular, with some diplomats calling for converting them into a fixed mechanism between the two organizations.

Mr. El Araby also stressed the need to reconsider the way the Security Council operates in order to become better able to shoulder responsibilities entrusted to it in dealing with crises that threaten international peace and security and resolving disputes by peaceful means. He pointed out the significant role played by regional organizations in that regard, which he said was also underlined in the charters of both the UN and League of Arab States.

Following the League's meeting, the Security Council mission went to meet Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and some of his top aides. Their talks revolved around the Palestinian issue, developments in both Libya and Somalia, and the conflict in Syria.

NAVAL TRAINING'S INTERNATIONAL COMMAND CHANGES LEADERSHIP

Story Number: NNS160523-05Release Date: 5/23/2016 9:13:00 AM  

By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Brittany N. Tobin, Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs

PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) held a change of command ceremony May 19 at the National Museum of Naval Aviation at Naval Air Station Pensacola.

Capt. Courtney Smith relieved Capt. Douglas Heady as commanding officer, who retired after 30 years of service.

Former Commander, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), retired Rear Adm. Don Quinn was the quest speaker for the ceremony and highlighted the many accomplishments achieved under Heady's command.

"You have significantly enhanced our nation's security cooperation efforts by building effective partnerships," said Quinn. "To do this you have communicated frequently with Navy fleet commanders, Navy systems commands, NETC, and the headquarters of all 5 military services while meticulously managing over $920 million in training and 76,000 international students from 161 countries."

Heady, from Marathon, New York, earned a Naval ROTC scholarship to the University of Notre Dame and received his bachelor's degree in 1986. He was then designated a naval flight officer in February 1988 and went on to accumulate more than 2,700 flight hours -- including 2,600 in tactical jet aircraft with 780 carrier arrested landings. Heady completed his master's degree in national strategy and strategic studies from the Naval War College in 2001, graduating with distinction.

Heady's naval aviation career began with an operational assignment to Sea Control Squadron (VS) 31, where he flew the S-3B Viking. Assignments to shore and staff billets include a tour as fleet replacement instructor at VS-27 and as special technical operations branch chief at U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida, supporting combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

He also served as operations officer aboard USS Enterprise (CVN 65), supporting combat operations in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. His most recent assignment was camp commander, Al Asad Air Base, the largest air base in Iraq, from April-December 2010. Heady assumed command in May 2011 as the 12th commanding officer of NETSAFA.

"During the five years I have been at the command, I have had the unique opportunity to watch NETSAFA transform," said Heady. "There are around 1,200 international students in the Navy schools, and that's pretty impressive."

"Understand that Doug will be replaced by yet another S-3 member," said Quinn. "Capt. Courtney Smith is a proven leader who will help take NETSAFA to the next level."

Smith graduated from the University of Texas in 1988, earning a bachelor's degree in government and was commissioned through NROTC. She was designated as a naval flight officer in February of 1990 and went on to accumulate over 3,200 total flight hours in ten different aircraft with over 500 arrested landings. Smith completed her master's degree in military studies and joint warfare from American Military University.

After her first assignment with the Flashbacks of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 34 in Point Mugu, California, Smith returned to Pensacola in 1993 as a physical training and swim instructor at Naval Aviation Schools Command and served as an associate flight instructor with Training Squadron (VT) 10 flying the T-39 Saberliner. In 1998, she transitioned to the S-3B Viking and reported to the Maulers of VS-32 at NAS Jacksonville, Florida. In December 2000, she once again returned to Pensacola where she served as administrative officer at VT-10 and instructed in the T-39 Saberliner.

In July 2008, Smith transitioned to the EA-6B Prowler and reported to the Gray Wolves of VAQ-142 as executive officer, ultimately assuming command of the squadron October 2009. Under her leadership, the squadron completed two combat deployments to Al Asad, Iraq, in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn. Smith's most recent assignment was executive assistant to the Commander, Naval Education and Training Command in Pensacola.

"I'm humbled and honored to take command of NETSAFA," said Smith. "The hard work and coordination that is done every day between NETSAFA worldwide, with training and maritime security partners readily supports the United States strategic policy and strengthens our international ties with our allies around the world."

Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) is the U.S. Navy's agent for managing international training under Security Assistance and Security Cooperation programs. NETSAFA coordinates and supplies training support to international governments and organizations. The command also strives to build relationships that promote U.S. interests, strengthen defense relationships and support partner nation's abilities to participate in coalition operations.

PHOENIX EXPRESS 2016 COMMENCES


Story Number: NNS160523-10Release Date: 5/23/2016 10:28:00 AM

From U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet Public Affairs


160521-N-EF272-011 BIZERTE, Tunisia (May 21, 2016) A Tunisian naval vessel completes final approach of a target vessel before a boarding attempt during the at-sea portion of Exercise Phoenix Express 2016. Phoenix Express, sponsored by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and facilitated by U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet, is designed to improve regional cooperation, increase maritime domain awareness information-sharing practices, and operational capabilities to enhance efforts to achieve safety and security in the Mediterranean Sea.

SOUDA BAY, Greece (NNS) -- Maritime forces from Europe, North Africa, and the United States began the tenth iteration of the multinational maritime Exercise Phoenix Express, May 17.

Phoenix Express, sponsored by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and facilitated by U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet, is designed to improve regional cooperation, increase maritime domain awareness information-sharing practices, and operational capabilities to enhance efforts to achieve safety and security in the Mediterranean Sea.

Quote:

"The benefit of Phoenix Express is the coordination and collaboration that happens between multinational partners in the maritime environment, every Chief of Naval Operations that I have ever worked for, part of their vision has always been not just the U.S. Forces but all of the other partners that we operate with around the world. "It takes all of us working together and contributing to each other's knowledge and experience." - Rear Adm. Kevin Kovacich, Director of Strategy, Plans and Programs, United States Africa Command

"I provide customized and dedicated training to the participating units and have been committed to this for the past nine years since the center was established. Phoenix Express sets the provisions to allow partners to get integrated and provide opportunities for the crew members to work and integrate together." - Commodore Georgios Tsogkas, Commandant of NATO Maritime, Interdiction Operational Training Center (NMIOTC), Hellenic Navy

Quick Facts:

This year's exercise control group will be hosted at the NATO Maritime Interdiction Operations Training Center (NMIOTC) located in Souda Bay, Greece but training will take place throughout the Mediterranean to include North African nations' territorial waters.

The at-sea portion of the exercise will test North African, European, and U.S. forces' abilities to combat illegal migration, illicit trafficking, and movement of materials for weapons of mass destruction. Additionally, participating forces will work together to practice procedures of search-and-rescue in cases where vessels are in distress. Participating Maritime Operations Centers (MOCs) will exercise information sharing practices.

Participants of Phoenix Express have opportunities to enhance expertise in a number of areas: boarding techniques, search-and-rescue operations, medical casualty response, MOC to MOC communication, and maritime domain awareness tools.

Scenarios focused on the globally-recognized Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) will allow endorsing nations of Tunisia and Morocco to develop capabilities to detect and disrupt the delivery of materials used to build and develop weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

A Combined Maritime Operation Center (CMOC), led and comprised of North African navy officers, will form at the NMIOTC to manage the at-sea operations.

While the exercise is facilitated by the U.S. Navy, senior leaders from North African navies have prominent roles in the exercise. A Moroccan officer will oversee the exercise control group; a Tunisian officer will oversee the CMOC; and an Algerian officer will oversee a five-ship surface action group participating in the at-sea phase.

Medical and maritime interdiction operations (MIO) specialists will assist participating partner nation units during the exercise.

A senior leader seminar will be held one day prior to the start of the exercise, organized and facilitated by the Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies. The seminar will focus on the current maritime challenges in the Mediterranean and bring forward dialogue on how regional cooperation can address those challenges.

Exercise Phoenix Express is one of three U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet facilitated regional exercises. The exercise is part of a comprehensive strategy to provide collaborative opportunities amongst African forces and international partners that addresses maritime security concerns. Participating nations in Phoenix Express 2016 include Algeria, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States. NATO Shipping Center is also scheduled to participate.

The U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts the full spectrum of joint and naval operations, often in concert with allied, joint, and interagency partners, in order to advance U.S. national interests and security and stability in Europe and Africa.

HEADS UP : MASSIVE "MAJOR DISASTER" MILITARY DRILL ONGOING IN THE D.C. AREA



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61TLZMCplZc

I live in Southern Maryland about 20mins east of D.C, close to Andrews Air Force Base and on the Chesapeake Bay. This time of year it is not strange to have military fly overs or even the coast guard helicopters doing training.

However, about 5 days ago I noticed we have had helicopters flying overhead on and off all day and night. Although we sometimes will see this maybe one or two days out of the year this was above and beyond anything normal. We have lived here for the last 7 years. The helicopters and planes that have been going overhead have not all been what we normally see. Some are unmarked, others are military, and most of them are either staying above the clouds or something because you can't even see them to identify them.

Others have also confirmed that they have never seen this type of activity so many days in a row for so many hours. I heard that an inside source in the army said this week and next week, for the first time ever, they are doing training to prepare for major disasters. This is being done by all law enforcement and military agencies within a specific radius of D.C. (I think it was 100 miles). This week is police week and therefore you do see some training as normal however this is much different. They are planning for a major disaster in the D.C. area. This is not normal yearly training. This two week long exercise has never been done before and definitely not at this scale.

5/23 still major helicopter movements

USNS MERCY ARRIVES IN 7th FLEET FOR PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP

Story Number: NNS160524-03Release Date: 5/24/2016 10:17:00 AM  

By Pacific Partnership Public Affairs



160518-N-IU636-301 PEARL HARBOR (May 18, 2016) Sailors assigned to the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) man the rails as the ship transits Pearl Harbor and prepares to moor at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Mercy is deployed in support of Pacific Partnership 2016. Pacific Partnership, in its 11th year, is the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the region, and was born out of the military-led response to the tsunami that struck parts of Southeast Asia in December 2004. It is designed to improve disaster response preparedness while enhancing partnerships with participating nations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

PACIFIC OCEAN (NNS) -- Hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) arrived in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations May 24 in support of Pacific Partnership 2016. Now in its 11th year, Pacific Partnership is a multilateral, disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the Indo-Asia-Pacific Region.

"Partner nations, who invited Pacific Partnership 2016 to visit, refined our mission's focus this year," said Capt. Tom Williams, U.S. Navy, Pacific Partnership 2016 mission commander. "Over the past several months we have worked side-by-side with a dozen partner nations planning disaster relief, medical and engineering projects and exchanges that will strengthen mutual understanding and partnerships in the region."

Pacific Partnership 2016 will conduct stops in Timor Leste, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Palau, with partners from around the Pacific -- including Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Non-governmental organizations also participate in the mission including Project Hope, Latter Day Saints Charities, University of California San Diego, Project Handclasp, and World Vets. Medical and civil-engineering teams will collaborate with partner nations in subject matter expert exchanges, disaster relief preparedness exercises and community relations projects.

Pacific Partnership began in response to the December 2004 tsunami that devastated parts of Southeast Asia. Along with other nations the United States deployed U.S. Navy assets, including Mercy, which later returned to the region in 2006 for the first Pacific Partnership mission.

"This year's mission will operate where natural disasters are a common challenge for all partner nations," said Williams. "Pacific Partnership's aim is to bring partner nations together to prepare in a time of calm so we can effectively respond when a crisis does occur."

Mercy, homeported in San Diego, is 894-feet-long and is outfitted to provide mobile acute and surgical medical services in disaster or humanitarian relief efforts. Hospital capabilities include a wide range of life-saving surgical procedures and blood bank services to diagnostic x-ray or laboratory services. The team of medical professionals include doctors, nurses, technicians and support staff who provide the full spectrum of care in surgical specialties, internal medicine, radiology, dental prosthetics and eye health among many others.

ALLEMAGNE : EN BAVIERE, LES MIGRANTS ASSURERONT L'ORDRE PUBLIC

Ruse pour mettre en application les lois de la Sharia.

Le ministère de l'Intérieur de la Bavière a décidé de lancer une campagne de recrutement de policiers parmi les réfugiés. Qu'ils possèdent un passeport ou pas, tous les migrants désireux de rejoindre les rangs des forces de l'ordre peuvent désormais tenter leur chance, rapporte Münchener Merkur.

Le ministre bavarois de l'Intérieur Joachim Herrmann a lancé la campagne à Nuremberg, expliquant qu'elle avait pour but de rehausser l'indice d'efficacité de la lutte contre la criminalité.
 
Le fait que les policiers parleront la même langue que les migrants vivant dans des communautés constituera un élément clé dans le travail de la police régionale. De plus, les migrants sont plus à même de saisir la mentalité de leurs confrères.

"Je suis optimise, de cette manière nous pourrons améliorer notre aptitude à résoudre des crimes et à diminuer le risque de conflits", indique M. Herrmann, cité par Münchener Merkur.

Et d'expliquer que cette mesure était une réponse aux échecs dans l'enquête sur des assassinats en série de migrants, derrière lesquels se cachent des membres du Parti national-socialiste clandestin (organisation néonazie).

"Nous avons compris qu'il serait bon d'avoir plus de collègues étrangers", a poursuivi le ministre, ajoutant que les autorités régionales envisageaient cette mesure depuis longtemps.
 
Au cours des 23 dernières années, les forces de l'ordre de la région ont embauché 159 employés qui n'ont pas la citoyenneté allemande. Il s'agit de ressortissants de 19 pays, notamment de Turquie. Rappelons que l'Allemagne a accueilli au cours de cette dernière année près d'un million de migrants.

Traditionnellement, la meilleure façon de pister les futurs déploiements militaires – en dehors des événements inattendus, bien sûr – a été de suivre les marchés clés pour les missions critiques du Département américain de la Défense en matériels militaires offensifs tels que les armes et les munitions, ou, ce qui est moins remarqué, des composants défensifs de base tels que le kevlar, les gilets pare-balles et d’autres formes d’équipements de protection individuelle. L’approvisionnement pour ces derniers a généralement lieu peu de temps avant les grands «événements» impliquant les forces armées américaines.

C’est la raison pour laquelle nous avons été surpris d’apprendre que, un peu plus tôt aujourd’hui, le ministère américain de la Défense arévélé qu’il avait lancé une commande, pour 93 millions de dollars, de 177000 plaques balistiques de protection au fournisseur traditionnel de l’armée américaine d’équipements de protection, Ceradyne qui , il y a plusieurs années, avait été acheté par 3M . La production et la livraison de la commande devraient être conclues au cours des prochains mois.
Voici le communiqué de presse
Citation:

« Ceradyne, Inc., une société 3M, a remporté un contrat de 92,7 millions de dollars avec Defense Logistics Agency pour la livraison de 177000 pièces de gilets pare-balles. Les plaques sont conçues pour répondre aux exigences de performance rigoureuses définies par le Département américain de la Défense. La production et les livraisons devraient commencer en 2016. »



Pour ceux qui ne la connaissent pas, voici à quoi ressemble la plaque de protection de Ceradyne



Comme l’explique Ceradyne, la plaque balistique de protection est portée par presque tout le monde dans les forces armées américaines.

Portées par les soldats américains, les marins, les aviateurs et les Marines, les plaques légères ESAPI (Enhanced Small Arms Protective Inserts) sont insérées à l’extérieur de gilets tactiques modulaires pour assurer la protection du torse contre le feu des armes légères. Ces plaques de protection protègent quotidiennement les forces armées américaines dans la bataille.

Pendant ce temps, c’est, en fin de compte,  3M qui se frotte les mains.
Citation:

« 3M est heureux de remporter ce contrat, et nous sommes honorés de fournir un gilet pare-balle à l’armée américaine », a déclaré Cheryl Ingstad, directeur d’Advanced Ceramics Platform – Défense, 3M. « Nous continuons la mission que nous nous sommes donnée de tirer parti de l’innovation dans la science des matériaux avancés et les processus de fabrication pour fournir des gilets pare-balles de haute technologie qui répondent aux normes de qualité rigoureuses du ministère américain de la Défense. Nous n’oublions jamais que le but principal de chaque plaque de protection est de sauver la vie du soldat qui la porte ».



Ceradyne est devenu le fournisseur exclusif du département de la Défense pour pratiquement toutes les armures de protection: il a satisfait des commandes pour des centaines de milliers gilets de protection et au moins 100 000 casques de combat renforcés pour les forces armées américaines.

La dernière fois que Ceradyne a annoncé un gros contrat de gilets de protection balistique avec le Pentagone, c’était en Octobre dernier lorsque le DoD avait commandé quelques 28000 gilets pour un prix de 34 millions de dollars. Cela s’était passé juste au moment où les troupes américaines étaient en train de se déployer secrètement en plus grand nombre en Irak et en Syrie.

Avec cette dernière commande de gilets pare-balles, la plus importante à ce jour, l’armée américaine se prépare-t-elle à une autre offensive majeure, et si oui, où ?

‘DID WE GO TO WAR?’: INIDIANA TOWN ROCKED BY UNEXPECTED MILITARY EXERCISES


ckr/ Morning Calm Weekly Newspaper Installation

US
00:24 26.05.2016(updated 03:24 26.05.2016) 

Residents of Beech Grove, Indiana, were awakened shortly after midnight Tuesday to the sound of bombs and helicopters, flooding the emergency 911 call network with requests for information and reports of explosions.


Police officials quickly confirmed to alarmed residents that it was a scheduled military training exercise. Still, many residents took to social media to report their anger and confusion.

“Anyone know what's going on in the sky above Beech Grove right now? Did we go to war and no one mention it?” one resident tweeted.

“We’re about a block away on 14th & no one told our street. Whole neighborhood was out bc we thought the world was ending,” another noted.

While some residents reported being forewarned of the late night drill, many others were taken by surprise. Members of the community reported hearing what sounded like bombs and seeing low-flying helicopters.

“Anybody else see about half a dozen black choppers flying super low over the beech grove area? Also sounded like shots or explosions?” Brian Forrester asked on Twitter.

“We’re sorry people were startled,” Beech Grove Police Capt. Robert Mercuri told the Indianapolis Star. “We hope they understand that the city of Beech Grove was trying to help the people who protect us everyday.”

CHINA REPORTEDLY WIL SEND NUCLEAR-ARMED SUBMARINES TO PATROL PACIFIC 

Published May 26, 2016
FoxNews.com

Report: China to move nuclear-armed submarines to Pacific

The Chinese military reportedly is planning to send submarines armed with nuclear weapons to patrol the Pacific Ocean for the first time amid territorial disputes over islands in the region.

The Guardian, citing Chinese military officials, said that while the timing for a maiden patrol has not yet been determined, Beijing insists that such an action is inevitable.
The report comes days after U.S. President Barack Obama announced that he had lifted a decades-long arms embargo against Vietnam. Chinese officials publicly praised the move, but an opinion piece in a state-run newspaper warned that any attempt to enlist Vietnam in an effort to contain China "bodes ill for regional peace and stability, as it would further complicate the situation in the South China Sea, and risk turning the region into a tinderbox of conflicts."



U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry responded Monday by saying that it was China's actions in the South and East China Seas that could create a tinderbox.
"I would caution China to not unilaterally move to engage in reclamation activities and militarization of islands," he said.

The Pentagon says China has reclaimed more than 3,200 acres of land in the South China Sea and is developing and building military installations on the manmade islands.

As a consequence, the U.S. and Vietnam have steadily strengthened their relationship in recent years, in line with growing Vietnamese concern over Chinese moves to assert its maritime claims.

Despite China and Vietnam being Communist countries, clashes in 1988 over their conflicting claims in the South China Sea killed dozens of people. The tensions reared again in 2014, when China parked an oil rig off Vietnam's central coast, sparking confrontations at sea and deadly anti-China riots in Vietnam.

Last week, the Pentagon said two Chinese fighter jets flew within about 50 feet of a U.S. Navy reconnaissance plane in what was termed an "unsafe intercept."
China responded by demanding that the U.S. end surveillance patrols around the South China Sea, with a foreign ministry spokesman claiming that such missions "seriously endanger Chinese maritime security."

Earlier this month, a U.S. Navy destroyer sailed within 12 miles of China’s Fiery Cross reef, an artificial island made after months of dredging operations. It was the third time the Navy sailed a warship close to a contested Chinese island in what the Pentagon calls “freedom of navigation” operations. Beijing responded by scrambling fighter jets to show its displeasure.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

160525-N-RJ834-023 PEARL HARBOR (May 25, 2016) Military representatives from U.S. Pacific Fleet (PACFLT), U.S. Pacific Air Forces and the People's Republic of China (PRC) People's Liberation Army Navy and Air Force met for the Military Maritime Consultative Agreement (MMCA), from May 24-25, at Ford Island.

PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Military representatives from U.S. Pacific Fleet (PACFLT), U.S. Pacific Air Forces and the People's Republic of China (PRC) People's Liberation Army Navy and Air Force met for recurring consultations to improve coordination on maritime issues and safety at Ford Island, May 24-25.

The overall goal of the two-day talks, known as the Military Maritime Consultative Agreement (MMCA), is to strengthen ties through open communication between U.S. and PRC naval and air forces and to improve operational safety in the air and maritime environments.

"Engagements like the Military Maritime Consultative Agreement help the U.S. and Chinese militaries work towards common goals while also candidly addressing differences," said Capt. Donald Cribbs, head of International Plans and Policy for PACFLT. "This dialogue helps both sides reduce the likelihood of incidents at sea and in the air."

The MMCA was established by the Department of Defense and the PRC Ministry of National Defense January 1998 as an instrument to promote common understanding and mutual respect.


The agreement was designed to prevent incidents and strengthen regional safety for U.S. and PRC maritime and air forces operating in accordance with international law. The last MMCA meeting was held at the U.S. Pacific Air Forces Headquarters November 2015.

CENTRAL EUROPEAN NATO MEMBERS TO SEND TROOPS TO BALTICS

by Staff Writers
Liblice, Czech Republic (AFP) May 25, 2016



Four central European states said Wednesday they would send troops to three Baltic NATO allies starting next year as tensions with their Soviet-era master Russia rise to levels not seen since the Cold War.

The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia said they would fine-tune quarterly rotational deployments of 600 troops to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in time for a key NATO summit in Warsaw this July.

"We would like to start on January 1, 2017," Czech Defence Minister Martin Stropnicky said following talks with his central European counterparts.

Each country will provide 150 soldiers for a period of three months.

NATO and the Baltic states will decide where exactly the mainly ground troops will be deployed following the July summit.

Stropnicky said the move is designed to help "Baltic allies and friends who have security concerns".

Spooked by Russia's 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine, formerly Soviet-ruled Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are seeking international battalions of up to 1,000 troops in each of their territories.

NATO and the United States said this spring that they will switch their defence doctrine from assurance to deterrence in eastern Europe in response to a "resurgent and aggressive Russia".

IN HIROSHIMA, OBAMA NONORS 'SILENT CRY' OF BOMBING VICTIMS

The Associated Press

by AP 27 May 2016



HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) — President Barack Obama paid tribute Friday to the “silent cry” of the 140,000 victims of the atomic bomb dropped 71 years ago on Hiroshima, and called on the world to abandon “the logic of fear” that encourages the stockpiling of nuclear weapons.

Obama’s trip to Hiroshima made him the first U.S. president to visit the site of the world’s first atomic bomb attack, and he sought to walk a delicate line between honoring the dead, pushing his as-yet unrealized anti-nuclear vision and avoiding any sense of apology for an act many Americans see as a justified end to a brutal war that Japan started with a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor.

“Death fell from the sky and the world was changed,” Obama said, after laying a wreath, closing his eyes and briefly bowing his head before an arched stone monument in Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park that honors those killed on Aug. 6, 1945. “The flash of light and a wall of fire destroyed a city and demonstrated that mankind possessed the means to destroy itself.”

In a carefully choreographed display, Obama offered a somber reflection on the horrors of war and the dangers of technology that gives humans then “capacity for unmatched destruction.”

With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe standing by his side and an iconic bombed-out domed building looming behind him, Obama urged the world to do better.

“We stand here in the middle of this city and force ourselves to imagine the moment the bomb fell,” Obama said. “We force ourselves to feel the dread of children confused by what they see. We listen to a silent cry.”

A second atomic bomb, dropped on Nagasaki three days after Hiroshima, killed 70,000 more. Japan surrendered on Aug. 15, 1945, ending a war that killed millions.

Obama hoped Hiroshima would someday be remembered not as the dawn of the atomic age but as the beginning of a “moral awakening.” He renewed his call for a world less threatened by danger of nuclear war. He received a Nobel Peace Prize early on in his presidency for his anti-nuclear agenda but has since seen uneven progress.

“Among those nations like my own that hold nuclear stockpiles, we must have the courage to escape the logic of fear and pursue a world without them,” Obama said.

Abe, in his speech, called Obama’s visit courageous and long-awaited. He said it would help the suffering of survivors and he echoed the anti-nuclear sentiments.

“At any place in world, this tragedy must not be repeated again,” Abe said.

Critics believe Obama’s mere presence in Hiroshima would be viewed as an apology for what they see as a bombing that was needed to stop a Japanese war machine that had brutalized Asia and killed many Americans. But Obama’s decision also drew praise from those who see it as a long overdue gesture for two allies ready to bury a troubled past.

Obama’s remarks showed a careful awareness of the sensitivities. He included both South Koreans and American prisoners of war in recounting the death toll at Hiroshima — a nod to advocates for both groups who publicly warned the president not to forget their dead.

Obama spoke broadly of the brutality of the war that begat the bombing — saying it “grew out of the same base instinct for domination or conquest that had caused conflicts among the simplest tribes” — but did not assign blame.

After his remarks, he met with two survivors. Although he was out of ear shot of reporters, Obama could be seen laughing and smiling with 91-year-old Sunao Tsuboi. He embraced Shigeaki Mori, 79, in a hug.

Later, Tsuboi told reporters he was struck by how Obama held his hand and listened carefully. He told the U.S. president he will be remembered as the one who “listened to the voice of survivors like us.”

“You should come visit Hiroshima from time to time and meet lots of people. That is what is important,” Tsuboi said.

Obama’s visit, which lasted just under two hours while most Americans were sleeping, was crafted for close scrutiny in Asia, a region he’s tried to put at the center of his foreign policy legacy. Obama and Abe strode together along a tree-lined path, past an eternal flame, toward a river that flows by the domed building that many associate with Hiroshima.

They earlier went to the lobby of the peace museum to sign the guest book: “We have known the agony of war. Let us now find the courage, together, to spread peace, and pursue a world without nuclear weapons,” Obama wrote, according to the White House.

The president’s call for a nuclear-free world was a long way from the optimistic rallying cry he delivered as young, newly elected president. Obama did not employ his campaign slogan — “Yes, we can” — as he did in a speech in Prague in 2009. Instead, the president spoke of diligent, incremental steps.

“We may not realize this goal in my lifetime but persistent effort can roll back the possibility of catastrophe,” he said. “We can chart a course that leads to the destruction of these stockpiles.”

Obama touched down in Hiroshima after completing talks with world leaders at an international summit in Shima, Japan. He was accompanied by Caroline Kennedy, the U.S. ambassador to Japan.

Hiroshima’s peace park is a poignant place, with searing images of the burnt, tattered clothing of dead children and the exposed steel beams on the iconic A-bomb dome. The skeletal remains of the exhibition hall have become an international symbol of peace and a place for prayer.

Han Jeong-soon, the 58-year-old daughter of a Korean survivor, was also at the park Friday.

“The suffering, such as illness, gets carried on over the generations — that is what I want President Obama to know,” she said. “I want him to understand our sufferings.”

USNS MERCY CONDUCTS MEDEVAC OF SOUTH KOREAN SAILOR

Story Number: NNS160526-20 Release Date: 5/26/2016 10:09:00 PM 

From Pacific Partnership Public Affairs

PACIFIC OCEAN (NNS) -- The hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) conducted a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) May 27 to assist a Republic of Korea sailor in need of medical attention.

At approximately 10:30 a.m., May 26, Mercy, which is operated by military sealift command personnel from San Diego, received orders from Commander Task Force (CTF) 73 to render medical assistance to a Republic of Korea Navy (ROK-N) submarine in the mid-pacific. Mercy was approximately 18 hours away and altered track to meet the ROK-N submarine.

Mercy is equipped to provide mobile acute medical and surgical services to deployed forces ashore and at sea, and is currently underway in support of Pacific Partnership 2016.

Embarked Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 21 launched an MH-60S helicopter from Mercy early May 27, recovered the sailor with a team of expert rescue crewmen including Aircrewman Helicopter Second Class Charles Weaver of Knoxville, Tennessee, Aircrewman Helicopter Second Class Vincent Meza of Fallbrook, California and Aircrewman Helicopter Second Class Benjamin McCracken of Sarasota, Florida. The HSC 21 team safely hoisted the sailor from the deck of the surfaced submarine and returned him to the hospital ship where he is currently being treated by medical personnel.

"It was fortuitous [that Mercy was in the vicinity] because we have highly qualified surgeons and medical teams aboard the ship," said Lt. Cmdr. Pete Bradford, department head for the main operating room, medical treatment facility USNS Mercy.

Mercy will visit Timor Leste, The Republic of the Philippines, Viet Nam, Malaysia and Indonesia during Pacific Partnership 2016, conducting multinational disaster response preparedness drills, and tailored medical and engineering civic action programs, to strengthen interoperability and partner nations' ability to collectively respond in a natural disaster or crisis.

PACIFIC OCEAN (NNS) -- The guided-missile destroyers USS Decatur (DDG 73) and USS Momsen (DDG 92) conducted bilateral exercises with the Republic of Korea Navy in the waters around the Korean Peninsula, May 20-22 and 25.

The exercises were focused on defense-oriented, naval training evolutions designed to conduct maritime maneuvers and strengthen the U.S.-ROK alliance, while also improving regional security.

Decatur and Momsen, along with Commander, Destroyer Squadron 31, are part of a Pacific Surface Action Group, operating under operational control of U.S. 3rd Fleet.

"Conducting the exercises with the Republic of Korea Navy has been great for the PAC SAG Sailors and for the alliance between the two navies," said Capt. Charles Johnson, commander, Destroyer Squadron 31. "The ability to utilize various communication channels during the exercises has increased the ROK Navy's readiness to participate in future exercises with the U.S. and other partner nations."

Over the course of several days, the two countries performed various evolutions, such as anti-submarine warfare, maneuvering drills, and gunnery exercises. One of the events held consisted of an ROK visit, board, search, and seizure team coming aboard Momsen and conducting a training drill with the ship's team.

"It was exciting to work with them and form bonds," said Ens. Nicholas Compton, a Momsen VBSS officer. "It was inspirational seeing boarding team members trading patches with one another and using similar tactics as us. They were just as pumped to handle the equipment as our guys."

The U.S. Navy maintains a presence in the Indo Asia-Pacific region to help preserve peace and security and to further partnerships with friends and allies. The forward presence contributes to freedom of navigation and lawful use of the sea, as well as furthers operational training and enables an exchange of culture, skills, and tactical knowledge.

The guided-missile destroyer USS Spruance (DDG 111) and embarked "Devil Fish" and "Warbirds" detachments of Helicopter Strike Squadron (HSM) 49 are also part of the PAC SAG. Spruance is underway conducting Oceania Maritime Security Initiative operations. OMSI is a Department of Defense initiative, in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard, to provide enforcement against illegal fishing and poaching in economic exclusive zones.

Under the operational control of U.S. 3rd Fleet, the PAC SAG is scheduled to conduct routine patrols, maritime security operations, and theater cooperation activities to enhance regional security and stability.

U.S. 3rd Fleet leads naval forces in the Pacific and provides the realistic, relevant training necessary for an effective global Navy.

PACFLT PARTICIPATESIN MULTI-NATIONAL MISSILE DEFENSE FORUM

Story Number: NNS160527-36Release Date: 5/27/2016 1:44:00 PM

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Brian M. Wilbur, U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs

HONOLULU (NNS) -- The head of U.S. Pacific Fleet Maritime Operations participated in the Maritime Theater Missile Defense Forum's planning session in Waikiki, Hawaii, May 24.

Rear Adm. Patrick Piercey spoke at the opening session, which was held for the first time in Hawaii. It serves as a precursor to the At Sea Demonstration scheduled for this summer at the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Hawaii during the Rim of the Pacific exercise, and allows participating nations to plan the event.

"The Maritime Theater Missile Defense Forum has already made impressive advances in the European theater, building a collaborative missile defense team that is preparing our forces for the IAMD challenge," said Piercey. "European and Pacific nations share the same interoperability goals for maritime Integrated Air and Missile Defense, and MTMD collaboration in the Pacific and during RIMPAC this year increases our ability to respond to present and future threats."

The MTMD is a multi-national organization that promotes and builds on the interoperability of sea-based Integrated Air and Missile Defense.

Last year's ASD in the North Atlantic gave the MTMD Forum its first opportunity to gather ships from participating nations and conduct various naval interoperability tests. During the demonstration, a Standard Missile 3 was launched for the first time in Europe and resulted in the first exo-atmospheric intercept from European waters.

Additionally, the demonstration marked the first time an object was launched into space from United Kingdom soil. Participants in the forum expressed how these milestones and more have helped establish a new foundation for interoperability for participating nations, and paved the way for future at-sea demonstrations.

The MTMD Forum consists of members from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, the United Kingdom and the United States. Since it is not specific to one country, the chairmanship rotates among its member nations. The chairmanship was held by the United States and was scheduled to be passed to the Netherlands for 2016-2017.

NAVAL RESERVISTS TRAIN IN JACKSONVILLE

Story Number: NNS160527-27Release Date: 5/27/2016 1:05:00 PM   

By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Michael Lopez

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- U.S. Navy Reserve officers from various components gathered in the Jacksonville tri-base area for the third annual Navy Reserve Warfighter Training, May 20-23.

More than 60 Reservists attended the event which focused on the Navy's new strategic guidance, "A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority."

Participants visited several commands in and around Naval Station Mayport, Naval Air Station Jacksonville, and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, for demonstrations and hands-on training from multiple platforms, including littoral combat ships, submarines, helicopter squadrons and U.S. Coast Guard vessels.

According to Capt. Glen Viado, commanding officer of Commander, Naval Surface Forces Atlantic Readiness Headquarters Detachment, NRWT gives Reserve officers an opportunity to increase their knowledge and experience to better understand the Navy's current and future capabilities.

"We hope their knowledge is enhanced by getting exposure to the different warfare communities, so they can have a better understanding of what they need to do as Reserve officers if they're mobilized or participate in exercises," said Viado.

Along with presentations from sea and air platforms, Reservists were also able to participate in amphibious assault vehicle demonstrations from Marines assigned to 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion, Company B.

"This training really helps broaden horizons," said Marine Corps Master Sgt. Sam Shaw, chief of 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion, Company B. "Sometimes we get compartmentalized with the jobs we do every day, so it's good for us to see what other service members do and how it may apply to our part of the mission."

Training on unfamiliar platforms can help Sailors step outside their comfort zones to expand their knowledge beyond their usual responsibilities.

"It allows us to go on a platform for hands-on experience. So from a planning perspective, as an officer, I can understand what Sailors do to operate and staff it," said Lt. Alex Bruning, assigned to Fleet Forces Command. "You can plan better on an operational level."

The Navy can significantly evolve in a short period of time, so keeping Reservists, who don't always get much operational experience, current on Navy capabilities is essential to their readiness.

"We're line officers from different communities and backgrounds, and this allows us to all share a common knowledge on operational things that are outside of our normal jobs," said Bruning.

Flag officers who spoke to reservists in attendance included Rear Adm. Christopher Grady, COMNAVSURFLANT; Rear Adm. Kelvin Dixon, deputy, COMNAVSURFLANT; and Rear Adm. Andrew Lennon, deputy commander, Reserve Submarine Force.

UN NAVIRE SUD-COREEN ADRESSE DES TIRS DE SOMMATION A DEUX VAISSEAUX NORD-COREENS

Est-ce la raison des pratiques militaires dans cette région?

La tendance était pourtant à l’apaisement ces derniers jours entre les deux Corée. Il y a quelques semaines, Kim Jong-Un, le dictateur de Pyongyang, annonçait sa volonté d’ouvrir des pourparler militaires avec ses voisins du sud pour mettre fin à l’escalade entre les deux pays après les essais nucléaires de la Corée du nord en janvier dernier. La veille, Ban-Ki Moon, secrétaire général de l’ONU et lui-même sud-Coréen, poussait officiellement au déclenchement de ce dialogue. Mais le 27 mai, un incident est venu raviver les tensions. 

Un bateau de pêche et un patrouilleur nord-coréens ont franchi la frontière maritime en mer jaune. Un navire militaire sud-coréen a alors répliqué via des tirs de sommation. Le bateau de pêche et le patrouilleur ont rapidement rebroussé chemin. Ces incursions sont reccurrentes d’un côté comme de l’autre.
