The 32th Korea‑U.S. Mar­itime Patrol Air­craft Com­mit­tee Meet­ing (MPACM) took place at the S. Kore­an Naval Air Wing Six from May 30 to June 1 to improve ROK‑U.S. joint air oper­a­tions capa­bil­i­ties.

The MPACM is a meet­ing held twice a year that rotates between being host­ed on the South Kore­an Navy’s Air Wing Six base and the U.S. Com­man­der, Patrol and Recon­nais­sance Force Sev­enth Fleet (CTF-72).

These meet­ings have been going on for the last 17 years since CTF-72 pro­posed to hold when the Kore­an Navy had intro­duced the P‑3 Ori­on mar­itime sur­veil­lance air­craft in 1955. 

The two navies dis­cussed in depth the joint top­ic “effec­tive anti­sub­ma­rine detec­tion meth­ods in con­sid­er­a­tion of mar­itime environment.” 

Fol­low­ing the joint dis­cus­sion, both sides had a heat­ed dis­cus­sion on a “plan for ROK‑U.S. joint mar­itime patrol air­craft oper­a­tions’ and on a ‘mar­itime patrol air­craft crew train­ing sys­tem,’ respectively. 

In addi­tion, both naval forces agreed to cre­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties for con­tin­ued MPACM meet­ings as well as oper­a­tional oppor­tu­ni­ties through an in-depth exchange of opin­ions togeth­er so they can con­tin­ue to enhance the bilat­er­al cooperation. 

“These meet­ings were a very mean­ing­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty to seek ways to strength­en sub­stan­tial and time­ly ROK‑U.S. joint mar­itime air oper­a­tions capa­bil­i­ties,” said Brig. Gen. Shim Jae-ok, com­man­der of the Air Wing Six. “And, in par­tic­u­lar, it [the meet­ing] great­ly helped us to improve a mil­i­tary friend­ly coop­er­a­tion between the two Navies as well as to share air anti­sub­ma­rine war­fare skills with each other.”
