With 32 naval ships, five submarines, more than 170 aircraft, and 20,000 personnel participating in the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2010 exercise, it is indeed the largest international maritime event. Partnering with Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Peru, Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Thailand, the U.S. Navy component, led by Commander, Combined Task Force, is emphasizing "Combined Agility, Synergy, and Support" for RIMPAC 2010.
Throughout the planning, preparation, and actual execution stages, SSC Pacific personnel have been supporting this massive event in a variety of ways - strategic planning, specialized coalition network communications engineering, and equipment installations to name a few.
Supporting RIMPAC 2010 gives our employees opportunities to experience and interact with different cultures, learn about foreign navies, and most importantly, lend their expertise to an event promoting stability in the Pacific Rim region.
