The exercise jumpstarted the RAN International Fleet Review happening from Oct 3 to 10, commemorating the arrival of Navy's first fleet into Sydney.


The ADMM-Plus Maritime Security Field Training Exercise is commanded by Co-Exercise directors Rear Admiral Dato Nasaruddin Bin Othman from Malaysia and Commodore Peter Leavy from Australia.


CDRE Leavy emphasised that the exercise is targeted on building a common understanding.
"The overarching goal is to promote information sharing and develop a baseline for communications at sea between ADMM-Plus countries. Force elements from Malaysia, Australia , Brunei, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, the United States and Vietnam will participate in the exercise. Participants have so far conducted successful air and boat boarding demonstrations viewed by members of the ADMM-Plus Experts' Working Group on Maritime Security," said CDRE Leavy.


"Further multilateral, investigative boarding exercises, major ship manoeuvring, flying operations, communications testing and other seamanship serials will occur over next two days," CDRE Leavy explained.


Rear Admiral Bin Othman added that the exercise was highly beneficial for all the countries involved.
"The exercise truly demonstrates the capacity of the ADMM-Plus framework to bring the region's navies together to foster practical cooperation against shared security challenges," Rear Admiral Othman stated.
