The exercise, taking place this weekend off of the East Coast, will test Pentagon thinking about how to link air and sea assets against 4th and 5th generation threats.
WASHINGTON: For the first time, four combatant commands are linking up to share real-time data during a homeland defense exercise designed to stop an enemy aircraft breaking into US airspace. The drill, which kicked off this week, marks an early test of the Pentagon’s emerging effort to quickly share data and operate against advanced threats across sea and air domains.
The May 28-31 exercise taking place off the US East Coast is being run by Northern Command and involves Space, Transportation and Strategic commands, along with the Navy’s 2nd Fleet.
At the center of the exercise is a B-1B attempting to punch into US airspace, while Canadian CF-18s and US F-15s, fueled by KC-135 Stratotankers, run an air intercept exercise in conjunction with F/A-18 fighters from the USS Harry S Truman. READ MORE...
