Northern Edge 2011

NORTHERN EDGE 2011 is a joint training exercise scheduled for June 13-24, 2011. It is Alaska's premier joint training exercise designed to practice operations, techniques and procedures, and enhance interoperability among the services. Over 6,000 participants from all the services, Airman, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen from active duty, reserve and national guard units are involved.

Participants will sharpen their skills by practicing operations, techniques, and procedures. This improves Command, Control and Communication relationships, and develops interoperable plans and programs. NE11 provides the opportunity to hone current and test future applications of combat operations and weapon capabilities. This joint training event provides effective, flexible and capabilities-centered joint forces ready for deployment worldwide and enables real world proficiency in detection and tracking of units at sea, in the air and on land, and response to multiple crises. For questions please call the Alaskan Command Public Affairs office at (907) 552-2341.

Alaskan command is grateful to the citizens of the state of Alaska for their support as we use our expansive training ranges to conduct these critical joint training operations.
