Its implementation is of great interest in the high degree of specialization required and the technology that requires the training of aircraft pilots operating on mobile platforms.

3. Principles of the Objectives of Activity:

The ARMADA ARGENTINA has for years been equipped with the naval aviation capacity of fixed wing. The current lack of an own carrier makes it difficult to maintain an adequate level of that capacity, for which a possibility is to exercise with naval units of that type of other armed.

Pilot rescue operations and maneuvers with protective surface units and escorts are carried out simultaneously.

Being highly complex operations, they contribute significantly to improving mutual trust between the two armed forces.

Annex XIII

BASICA INFORMATION FOR AUTHORIZATION FROM NATIONAL FORCES OUT OF THE NATIONAL TERRITORY.

1. Type of Activity to Develop:

Combined Sea Control Exercise "PANAMAX - 2010".

2. Project origin:

This exercise began in 2003 with the participation of the ARMADAs of the United States of AMERICA, of the CHILE REPUBLIC, and the NATIONAL MARITIMO SERVICE of the PANAMA REPUBLIC with the main objective of "Exerciting a Multinational Force in the Planning and Implementation of the Canal de Surveillance and Interdicción in order to ensure the Control of Panama and the Maritime".

In 2004, a special invitation was received for the ARMADA ARGENTINA in conjunction with other members of the Latin American Armed Forces to participate in the Multinational Force.

This exercise is of great interest to naval interoperability among the countries of the region, which is why it maintains its validity.

It has participated in the years 2007, 2008 and is expected to participate in 2009.

3. Principles of the Objectives of Activity:

The implementation of the PANAMAX Combined Exercise contributes to increasing the level of interoperability among the Armed participants in the planning and execution of Surveillance and Interdiction Operations of a bioceanic step, such as the PANAMA CANAL, through the exchange of information on the command and control systems of the naval means of surface and air, of doctrines and procedures, and the combined training in the conduct of forces at sea.

This exercise, framed by international military cooperation, serves to strengthen mutual trust and integration with the Armed Forces of the continent, and to maintain an adequate level of training to integrate a Multinational Force.

The realization of these specific operations is of great interest as it allows us to accumulate important experience in view of the responsibility of our country to control important interoceic passages in the south of the continent.

Annex XIV

BASICA INFORMATION REQUERED FOR THE AUTHORIZATION OF INTRODUCTION AND EXTRACTING TROPS IN THE TERRITORY OF NATION.

1. Type of Activity to Develop:

Combined Aircraft Training Exercise at Sea "GRINGO GAUCHO".

2. Project origin:

It's a bilateral opportunity exercise. It develops when a carrier of the ARMADA of the United States of AMERICA performs a navigation near the Argentine coast. In general these transits happen when one of these units must change its apostolate from one coast to the other of the United States of AMERICA. In that change, they must make the route through the southern end of the American continent since by its dimensions the carriers have restricted the passage by the CANAL DE PANAMA. On certain occasions the carrier was accompanied by an escort ship, frigate or destroyer.

In the past, similar exercises have been carried out on the following opportunities:

1990: Passage of the aircraft carrier USS "ABRAHAM LINCOLN"

1991: Passage of the aircraft carrier USS "KITTY HAWK"

1993: Passage of the aircraft carrier USS "CONSTELLATION"

2004: Passage of the aircraft carrier USS "RONALD REAGAN"

2008: Passage of the aircraft carrier USS "GEORGE WASHINGTON".

3. Principles of the Objectives of Activity:

The ARMADA ARGENTINA has for years had the capacity of naval aviation boarded with fixed wing. The lack of own carriers makes it difficult to maintain an acceptable level of that capacity, for which a possibility is to exercise with naval units of that type of other Armed Forces.

The passage of a carrier of the US AMERICA ARMED in front of our shores is an unbeatable opportunity to train in a capacity of great importance for our Navy.

On the other hand, a combined operation, of high complexity, involving different components of the naval power of different countries, implies an excellent test to ponder our degree of interoperability, the level of mutual trust and professional respect.

4. Activity configuration:

(a) Place of realization: International waters, up to our coasts.

(b) Tentative Dates of Income/Egress, Duration of Activity: During the first semester of 2010, with an approximate duration of CUATRO (4) days.

(c) Participating countries:

▪ ARGENTINA REPUBLIC

▪ UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Participants: Quantity, Types, Equipment and Arms

Media Propios:

▪ UNA (1) MEKO 140

▪ UN (1) Helicopter Sea King H-3

▪ UN (1) Fennec AS-555 helicopter

▪ DOS (2) Aircraft Tracker S2T

▪ DOS (2) Super Etend Aircraft (SUE)

▪ UN (1) Alouette AI-03

Media of the US AMERICA ARMADA:

▪ UN (1) Air carriers.

(d) Deployment of the Troops and Media: The exercises will be carried out in international waters outside the territorial sea of our country, in accordance with the criteria set out in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The aircraft carrier of the ARMADA of the United States of America shall not take port or enter into its own territorial waters.

(e) Immunity: No specific immunities have been requested for foreign troops entering the country.

(f) Approximate costs: The operating costs of our means amount to the sum of MIL SOURCES ($ 440.000,00).

(g) Source of Funding: Costs are covered with ARGENTINA ARMADA budget funds.

5. Situational framework:

The Exercise, as a whole, allows the development and improvement of tactics and operating procedures for the use of naval forces and the coordination of operations at sea.

In particular, interoperability is strengthened in one of the most complex operations in the naval scenario that is the integrated activity of ships and aircraft working in a coordinated manner.

The aircraft of their own, both fixed and rotating wing, will have the opportunity to train in operations on the deck of a aircraft carrier, interact with other aircraft operating from the same platform, coordinate actions and observe the teamwork of a unit that undoubtedly constitutes a gravitating tool of a naval force.

The own surface units will carry out escort tasks and will be trained in air control tasks, rescue stations and other specific tactical activities of a naval force operating around a carrier.

It is important to note that a naval force of a coalition of countries, under the mandate of an International Organization, could eventually be configured around a carrier. The training of own naval units, in tasks coordinated with that platform, generates a qualitative difference of importance in measuring our capacities.

Also, a surface unit will accompany the aircraft carrier of the ARMADA of the United States of AMERICA in its transit through waters near our shores.
