Training Exercise - UNITAS '94
Start Year
1994
End Year
1994

Description
UNITAS exercises are sponsored by U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command with the objective to foster cooperation and increase interoperability among the navies of the Americas. Held continuously since 1959, UNITAS has become the premier multinational naval exercise in the Southern Command area of operations.

During the two-week exercise, participating units have the opportunity to train as unified force in all aspects of naval operations, from maritime interdiction to anti-submarine and electronic warfare. U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command sponsors UNITAS exercises with the objective to foster cooperation and develop interoperability among the navies of the region.

UNITAS supports U.S. Southern Command objectives for enhanced maritime security in its area of responsibility.  It is intended to train participating forces in a variety of maritime scenarios to test command and control of forces at sea, while operating as a multinational force to provide the maximum opportunity to improve interoperability.

Personal Memories

Memories
This was actually COMPTUEX 1994, from October 1994 to December 1994.  TWS does not have this exercise listed for selection.  We were told to pack as if we were leaving on full deployment due to the activities in Somalia (Blackhawk Down).
