U.S. & Canada Team Up For Maritime Terror Drill

06-03-2008

About 3,000 people from Canadian and U.S. Military forces, and government civilian agencies will take part in a training exercise testing responses to a terrorist mine explosion off the Seacoast.

A full-scale training exercise, called Frontier Sentinel, will take place from June 9-13 focusing on maritime homeland security. The scenario will play out along the seacoast from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard to the U.S. Coast Guard Station in New Castle, according to Lt. Courtney Hillson of the Second Fleet Public Affairs Office.

The U.S. Coast Guard has conducted these training exercises about twice a year over the past several years. Sometimes the exercises are simulated but next week's will be a full scale test involving naval vessels and the use of Dorado, an unmanned underwater vessel that detects mines.
