Antiterrorism Exercise in Norfolk

Thursday, October 23, 2008

The exercise's concept of operations gave the training team a chance to eliminate the ashore/afloat team by achieving unity within the operational environment.

The exercise only focused on the first step to a threat. Units participating were guided-missile destroyers USS Gonzalez (DDG 66) and USS Bulkeley (DDG 84), and NAVSTA Norfolk installation security from the Sewells Point Police precinct.

The objective of the exercise was to assess AT Navy Mission Essential Tasks (NMETS), and a broad spectrum of primary capabilities such as force integration and safety, and to introduce the position of the antiterrorism tactical watch officer (ATTWO).

The ATTWO is the eyes and the voice which actively tells other posts what to do and how to react to a situation through different methods of communication.

This exercise was the first of its type, led by CNIC, held on Naval Station (NAVSTA) .
