6 July 2012, Volume 15, Number 7 oP NaNook 12 supports canada’s North Operation NANOOK 12 is the centrepiece of three annual CF sovereignty operations held in Canada’s North. It is held every year in August to practise and support Canada’s Northern Strategy, a whole-of- government initiative. In the North, responding to emergencies requires a team effort. Op NANOOK provides the means to develop and enhance Canada Command’s and Joint Task Force North’s (JTFN’s) collective capacity to work together with our whole-ofgovernment partners in response to safety and security matters, and to provide reassurance to Canadians that federal agencies are ready to respond when needed Op NANOOK will highlight interoperability, command and control, and cooperation with interdepartmental and intergovernmental partners in the North: the Coast Guard, Transport Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Public Safety Canada, RCMP, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, Territorial and local governments, and local industry. Working in the North is all about relationships. Op NANOOK is complemented by two annual JTFN operations, Op NUNALIVUT, held in the High Arctic in April, and Op NUNAKPUT, held in the Western Arctic in July and August. Canadian Operational Support Command (CANOSCOM), the CF lead for operational-level support, has been working with Canada Command and JTFN since 2008 to develop the support concept for the NANOOK series of operations.

Exercise MAPLE FLAG 45 allows air force personnel from various nations to develop their interoperability by simulating a UN air campaign against a highly capable enemy. A full spectrum of capabilities were exercised, including command and control, air-to-air and air-to-ground operations, air-to-air refueling, airborne warning and control, air transport, rotary-wing tactical airlift, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. The ability of air forces to integrate with land forces are also incorporated into the exercise. Ex MAPLE FLAG 45 also included Ex WINGED WARRIOR, which incorporated additional training opportunities PHOTO: ATTILA PAPP sea conditions. With the summer just beginning, Op NANOOK will soon be underway.

RIMPAC is designed to prepare military forces to work together in missions ranging from providing humanitarian aide to full combat operations. It began as an annual exercise in 1971 and, since 1974, has been scheduled every second year. The endurance of this exercise demonstrates the value of bringing international forces together to train and improve their ability to operate in a joint and combined multi-national force environment. RIMPAC 2012 is taking place near the Hawaiian Islands over a six-week period from June 29 to August 3, and occurs in three phases. The harbour phase consists of operational planning meetings, safety briefings and sporting events. It is designed to build professional and personal relationships between individuals from the participating countries and allow for final preparations for the at-sea phases of the exercise. The operational phase is driven by a structured schedule of events involving live-fire gunnery and missile exercises, maritime interdiction and vessel boardings, anti-surface and underwater warfare, naval manoeuvres, air defence exercises, HMCS Algonquin arrives at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, in Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 29, 2012. explosive ordnance disposal, diving, salvage and mine clearance operations, and an amphibious landing. The tactical phase is scenario-driven and allows participating nations to further strengthen their maritime skills and capabilities, and improve their ability to communicate and operate in a simulated hostile scenario. At the end of the exercise, the sea, land and air units return to Pearl Harbor, where the participating nations reconvene to evaluate the exercise and discuss what each nation accomplished. Scheduled and coordinated by the US Navy’s Third Fleet, RIMPAC offers Canada, through the senior members of the CF, the opportunity to assume positions of leadership, further enhancing Canada’s ability to work with other nations of the Asia-Pacific region. Men and women from all three elements of the CF will participate; RIMPAC 2012 involves forces from Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Tonga, the UK and the US. Only Canada, Australia and the US have participated in RIMPAC since its inception. Visit www.navy.forces.gc.ca/cms/4/ 4-a_eng.asp?category=14&id=909 for information.

ForcEs aT work in africa Twelve Canadians recently travelled to Douala, Cameroon, to strengthen capabilities of African armed forces via Africa Endeavor 2012, a multinational military communications exercise Sponsored by US Africa Command (US AFRICOM), Africa Endeavor, held from June 18 to 27, has been hosted annually in an African nation since 2006. Primarily a communications and interoperability exercise, it is designed to assist African armed forces develop workable concepts in terms of communications, command and control, and to strengthen partnerships among these forces. “I am proud of the visibility Canada enjoyed while attending Africa Endeavor for the second time.” —Col Pierre Lamontagne, CF liaison officer at US AFRICOM. Canadian professionalism and know-how was once again on display as the Canadians served as mentors and controllers, and played a primary role in the scenario. Eight signal team members from various units, including 5 Area Support Group Montréal and 5 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group Valcartier HQ and Signals Squadron, spent the 10-day exercise working with partner nations to establish general and specialized communications, set up a network, and test equipment to eliminate capability gaps. “Our skilled technicians put their expertise to good use, strengthening capability and sharing information with participating countries,” said Major Frédéric Lauzier, head of the Canadian delegation. The capacity-testing scenario was developed by a team led by the CF liaison officer assigned to US AFRICOM. It was built around an earthquake that caused considerable damage in the fictitious country of Carana and required military intervention to assist the local population. Africa Endeavor 2012 also provided an opportunity for public affairs officers from 36 African nations, Canada, the Netherlands and the US to get together for workshops and information sharing. The Canadians played a major role, putting their talents as instructors, mentors, photo and video technicians, and spokespersons to work. “I am proud of the visibility Canada enjoyed while attending Africa Endeavor for the second time,” said Colonel Pierre Lamontagne, CF liaison officer at US AFRICOM. The exercise was an opportunity for Canada, not only to forge ties with African nations, but also to contribute to security capacity-building in Africa, to improve interoperability and information sharing among African partners, and to cultivate its relationship with US AFRICOM. 7 PHOTO: Sgt Matthew McGregor
