AFP concludes 1st day of 'DAGIT-PA' inter-operability exercise
November 30, 2020, 2:57 pm

This AFP-wide exercise aims to enhance interoperability during joint operations of the Philippine Navy (PN), Philippine Air Force (PAF) and the Philippine Army (PA).

Joint inter-operability exercises (JIOEs) focused capabilities development in maritime security, military operations in urban terrain, and amphibious operations.

Amphibious operations, island defense, and combined-Arms Live-Fire exercises comprised this year’s JIOES.

Amphibious operation is a military operation launched from the sea by an amphibious force to conduct landing force operations within the littorals.

The littorals include those land areas that are predominantly susceptible to engagement and influence from the sea and may reach far inland.

It seeks to develop the military’s skills, techniques, and capabilities during rapid deployment of troops from ship to shore whether under hazardous circumstances or during natural disasters or hostile enemy actions.

This type of operation requires the unique ability to operate across air, land, and sea. It needs integrated Command and Control (C2) to achieve unity of effort, increased speed of action, and coordinated application of sea control and power projection capabilities.

On Sunday, the following exercises were completed; Publication Exercises (PUBEX), Plotting Exercises (PlotTex), Maneuvering Exercises (ManNex), Semaphore Exercise (SemaphorEx), Flag Hoisting Exercises (FlagHex), and Helicopter Exercises (HeliOps).

Assets used in these maneuvers are the strategic sealift vessel, the BRP Tarlac (LD-601), missile-frigate, BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), and an AugustaWestland AW-109 combat utility helicopter.
