In the coming week, a large-scale Joint Military exercise will be conducted under the aegis of Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC), the only Joint Forces Command of India, said the Ministry of Defence in a statement.
The Joint Military exercise named as ‘Exercise Kavach’ involves the assets of Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force and Indian Coast Guard.
The joint force would execute multi domain, high intensity offensive and defensive maneuvers in the Andaman Sea and Bay of Bengal and carry out amphibious landing operations, air landed operation, helicopters-borne insertion of Special Forces from sea culminating in tactical follow-on operations on land.
The tri-services exercise aims to fine tune joint war-fighting capabilities and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) towards enhancing operational synergy.
The exercise involves synergized application of maritime surveillance assets, coordinated air and maritime strikes, air defense, submarine and landing operations.
Concurrently Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) exercise involving various technical, electronic and human intelligence from three services will be conducted.
The ISR exercise will validate the capabilities of intelligence gathering and sharing from space, air, land and sea-based assets to achieve battlefield transparency for quick decision making at different stages of operations.
