INTRODUCTION

NATION.

1. Type of Activity to Develop

Combined Multilateral Sea Training Exercise "UNITAS XLVIII FASE ATLANTICO - 2007".

2. Origin of the Project

Exercise started in 1960, originally between the ARMADA OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and the armed forces of all the countries of SUDAMERICA, bilaterally with each of them, in order to provide the participants with the opportunity to conduct combined naval operations, to integrate the operational capacities of their naval, air and marine infantry forces, to optimize the enlistment of the participating material and human means, to promote military cooperation,

Since 1999, the exercises that were carried out separately with our country, with the FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF BRAZIL and with the ORIENTAL REPUBLIC OF URUGUAY, in a single phase called "ATLANTICA", rotative and that during the year 2007 will be carried out in the ARGENTINA REPUBLIC.

Other regional and extra-continental armed forces are also invited to participate with vessels, aircraft or observer officers.

3. Principles of the Objectives of Activity:

The implementation of the Combined Exercise UNITAS FASE ATLANTICO contributes to increasing the level of interoperability with the armed forces of the participating countries.

This is achieved through the exchange of information on the command and control systems of the naval means of surface, submarines and participating aerials, of doctrines and procedures and the combined training in the conduct of multinational forces at sea. The special feature of the media used by the US AMERICA ARMADA is its advanced technology, which allows us to appreciate and evaluate new technical capacities, as well as to increase the level of training and interoperability.

The conduct of such exercises, which are part of international military cooperation, serves to strengthen mutual trust and integration with the armed forces of the continent, especially with the regional ones, and to maintain an adequate level of training to increase naval capacities, interoperability and mutual trust between the armed forces.

5. Situational framework:

The guiding concept of this exercise is based on the implementation of a hypothetical international mission mandated by the United Nations Organization for Foreign Affairs, characterized by ongoing crisis management and pawning rules during the transfer of a multinational naval force under multiple threats to a simulated area of operations. In this context, tactics, doctrine and operational procedures are developed and improved for the use of naval forces and operations at sea are coordinated by involving a considerable number of ships of different types and aircraft based on land and on board.

The various types of exercises to be carried out, allow vessels to train in the participation and conduct of defensive operations and offensives against air, surface and submarine threats, re-provisioning at sea and communications and electronic warfare, as well as to carry out a wide variety of marine manoeuvres that are required throughout the exercise.
