Maritime Theater Missile Defense Forum Conducts At-Sea Demonstration


THE MARITIME THEATER
MISSILE DEFENSE FORUM CONDUCTED THE AT SEA
DEMONSTRATION 2015 ON THE NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN,
UNDER A MULTINATIONAL EFFORT. “IT IS HISTORIC, AND IT IS
DOUBLY HISTORIC BECAUSE IT IS NOT JUST THE
UNITED STATES NAVY, BUT IT IS A GROUP OF… EIGHT NATIONS THAT IT HAD
COME HERE WITH ELEVEN SHIPS THAT ARE TOTALLY
INTERCONNECTED AND THAT ARE NETTED THAT THEY
DEMONSTRATED THIS CAPABILITY TODAY. I THINK IS EXTREMELY
SIGNIFICANT THAT WE DEMONSTRATED WITH A LIVE
TEST THE ABILITY OF A FLOTILLA OF SHIPS TO
SIMULTANEOUSLY TAKE-OUT A MISSILE THREAT, A
BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT, AND A CRUISE
MISSILE THREAT, THAT’S NEVER DONE BEFORE.” THE GOAL OF THE MARITIME
THEATER MISSILE DEFENSE FORUM, IS TO PROVIDE
PROTECTION AGAINST THE PROLIFERATION OF
SHORT, MEDIUM, AND LONG RANGE
BALLISTIC MISSILES.
