Maritime Training Activity - Malaysia - Philippines (MTA MALPHI LAUT)

- is an annual bilateral training activity between the Philippine Navy (PN) and Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN), involving ships, aircraft, and special operations units.  A Defense Cooperation Memorandum of Understanding between the Philippines and Malaysia in 1994 enabled this exercise.  PN and the RMN  alternately host the conduct of the activity, and serves to strengthen the relationship and enhance mutual cooperation between the two navies through the development of combined operational doctrines, practices and naval tactics.

The activity usually is broken down into phases, such as administrative-protocol-desk related interactions phase, which includes courtesy calls, protocols, planning, etc; sea phases involving actual ship maneuvers and tactics; and social phases which includes sports competition, tours, civic actions and socio-cultural interactions.

The Philippines and Malaysia began yesterday their joint annual naval exercises in waters considered a key conduit for al-Qaeda-linked militants, human traffickers and arms smugglers, officials said.

The 10-day exercises, involving six navy ships and about 300 personnel, would allow the navies of the two Southeast Asian countries to communicate faster and jointly catch pirates, suspected terrorists and other outlaws, Philippine Navy Capt. Orwen Cortez said at a press briefing.

The joint naval exercise is dubbed MALPHI-LAUT 10-07. MALPHI is short for Malaysia and Philippines, while laut is a Malay word for sea.

The war games will involve three Malaysian missile corvettes KD Kedah, KD Laksamana Tan Pusmah, and KD Yu. The Philippine Navy BRP Quezon, BRP Artemio Ricarte and BRP Bienvenido Salting are also taking part in the exercise.

Agreement Signed between RMN, Philippine Navy for improved maritime training procedures (as translated)
Quote
LANGKAWI, March 22 (Bernama) - The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) today signed an agreement with the Philippine Navy to improve the third edition of Sea-Sea Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) used in Malphi Laut Maritime Training (MTA) and Maritime Patrol Training Activities.

According to a statement issued by the navy, the RMN said among the improved things were the reforms in maritime training initiatives such as simulation of war and special operations.

"Sea Marine SOP began to be introduced on 23 May 1997 which included referrals to be covered, including planning and things to do during the training as agreed between the two parties including administrative assistance and MTA packages.

"With the rapid development of activities between the two parties, we take the approach to review the contents of the SOP, including the format of activities that have not been available in the old SOP," he said.

The signing ceremony was officiated by Commander of the Navy, Admiral Tan Sri Ahmad Kamarulzaman Ahmad Badaruddin and his Filipina counterpart, Ronald Joseph Mercado.

Commenting further, the change has changed the pattern of training carried out with some improvements seen to be of benefit to both parties.
