Naval vessels will be seen practicing maritime security in and around the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Wash., and in area coastal waters. Helicopters and other aircraft may be seen overhead as their crews familiarize themselves with the unique geography of the region.

The exercise encompasses the training of naval surface assets, command and control and aviation operations as well as several other multilateral events.

The exercise is designed to strengthen military-to-military relationships and improve readiness and interoperability between U.S. and Canadian forces. Some aspects of the exercise will be visible to the public.
