The exer­cise will include inte­grat­ed heli­copters oper­a­tions, vis­it, board, search and seizure (VBSS) exchanges and demon­stra­tions, com­mu­ni­ca­tion links inter­op­er­abil­i­ty, dynam­ic ship maneu­vers and liai­son offi­cer exchanges.

U.S. for­ward pres­ence is in accor­dance with inter­na­tion­al law and con­tributes to free­dom of nav­i­ga­tion and over­flight and oth­er law­ful uses of the sea, eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment, and inter­na­tion­al com­merce.
