The exercise also aims to enhance understanding best practices for multi-faceted maritime operations.

This edition would involve a war-at-sea exercise, naval manoeuvres, weapon firing, etc.

Indian Navy is represented by two indigenous warships - INS Kamorta and INS Karmuk.

Singapore is represented by RSS Intrepid and RSS Endeavour while Thailand is by HTMS Kraburi.

The five-day maiden edition of the exercise was conducted in September 2019.
