Ukrainian Navy’s Military Council convened on Oct 25 to summarize Adequate Reaction 2011 exercise held in Sept 12-30 under general supervision of Ukrainian defense minister.

Presiding the session, Ukrainian Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Maksimov said in opening address that the Adequate Reaction 2011 exercise “became a considerable step towards development of Ukrainian Navy”.

“Chief of General Staff of Ukrainian Armed Forces Gen. Col. Grigory Pedchenko attended the exercise two times and appreciated actions of naval servicemen. On the other hand, there were some defects we should work on. Therefore, it is necessary to draw appropriate lessons in order to improve combat readiness, tactical and professional skills”, said the Navy Commander.

His deputy, Vice Admiral Yury Ilyin analyzed actions of military administrative authorities during the exercise. According to him, main purpose of research was to assess capabilities of naval administrative authorities to control forces. Most of managing agencies of the Navy Command, Naval Operations Center, and Coast Defense Center conducted all activities responsibly which helped to complete training tasks and reach the exercise goals, said Ilyin.

“Capability of the Navy to react adequately on potential threats and challenges was evaluated at the exercise in the context of new organizational structure of 2017. In addition, knowledge and management skills of admirals and commanding officers were improved, as well as integration level of control agencies and their interaction with other branches. Numerous innovative ideas regarding further development of the Navy were implemented during the Adequate Reaction 2011 exercise”, pointed out VADM Yury Ilyin.

According to Ukrainian Navy Deputy Commander, basic problem revealed was insufficient level of theoretical knowledge and practical skills of some officers; that needs appropriate conclusions and corrections to be made.

Capt 1 rank Andrei Tarasov, acting Navy Deputy Commander for Combat Training reported on tactical drills held during the exercise. According to him, all scheduled practical activities were conducted in predetermined terms and volumes, no violations of safety measures occurred.

According to Tarasov, 43 tactical drills were held during the exercise. The largest of them were battalion tactical fire drill at Opuk range and marine company tactical drill at Nikolayevka, Odessa region. The latter one implied landing and counter-terror operations at coastal zone.

About 30 warships, boats and supply vessels, 35 coast defense units, 300 wheeled and tracked vehicles, 14 aircrafts (including 7 naval ones), and over 3,500 men were involved in practical phase of the Adequate Reaction 2011 exercise, added Capt 1 rank Andrei Tarasov.

Offshore Patrol Vessels Technology 2016

Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are becoming an increasingly important resource for Navies and Coast Guards around the world. As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance the mission scope for a single OPV platform greatly increases. Policing missions such as Counter-Piracy and Counter-Terrorism operations can be supplemented now by survey and Mine Countermeasure operations simply by swapping equipment on board the ship. This is all done with a greatly reduced cost compared to mission-specific platforms or full scale warships which have greater maintenance and operations costs compared to flexible OPVs.

Therefore SMi is proud to announce that it will be launching its inaugural OPV Technology event which will focus on the new potential for OPVs within this proliferation in combat and combat support technology capabilities. The event will be held in London on the 8th-9th June to discuss how individual nations are working to enhance the capabilities of their coastal fleets as well as the prospect for future cooperation and interoperability.

Expert speaker line up for 2016 includes key decision makers from: US Africa Command, UK Border Force, French Navy, NATO, Italian Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, Finnish Border Guard, TNO, Damen Shipyards, C-SIGMA, IISS and many more.

 

Benefits of Attending:

  • Extremely focused on new technologies available to OPV using nations across Europe and beyond
  • Expert led panel discussions on international cooperation in operations and the future prospect for modular technologies
  • Briefings from leading Navy and Coast Guard officers from around the world
  • Learn about current and future national OPV platforms and how they enhance maritime security
  • Discover how to optimise business potential by working with these countries
