RIMPAC 2010 to Unite 14 Countries in Multi-National Exercise
Fourteen nations, 34 ships, five submarines, over 100 aircraft and 20,000 personnel will
participate in the biennial Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise June 23 through Aug. 1,
in the Hawaiian operating area in, and around, the islands of Hawaii.
Hosted by Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, RIMPAC demonstrates a commitment to
working with global partners in guarding the sea lanes of commerce and
communication, protecting national interests abroad and ensuring freedom of navigation
as a basis for global peace and prosperity. By design, RIMPAC is a multi-national
exercise that prepares forces to be interoperable and ready for a wide range of potential
operations. This, in turn, helps ensure stability throughout the Pacific Rim, aiding the
development and prosperity of all participating nations.
As an exercise, RIMPAC is intended to increase the tactical proficiency of participating
units in a wide array of maritime operations by enhancing military-to-military relations
and interoperability. During the exercise, participating units will conduct gunnery,
missile, anti-submarine, and air defense exercises, as well as maritime interdiction and
vessel boardings, explosive ordnance disposal, diving and salvage operations, mine
clearance operations, and an amphibious landing.
This year’s exercise includes units or personnel from Australia, Canada, Chile,
Colombia, France, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Peru, Republic of Korea,
Singapore, Thailand and the United States.
RIMPAC 2010 is themed “Combined Agility, Synergy and Support,” and marks the 22nd
exercise in the series that originated in 1971.
