Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN)'s Victory-class
missile corvette RSS Vigour is
participating in the ASEAN-Russia Maritime Exercise from 1 to 3 December 2021.
The exercise is being conducted off Sabang, Indonesia, and involves eight ships and
observers from ASEAN Member States and Russia.
2. During the sea phase, RSS Vigour joined the other ships in the
conduct of various serials including communication and manoeuvring drills, a
search and rescue exercise and a maritime security exercise. As part of the
maritime security exercise, the participating ships tracked the movement of
simulated vessels of interest, cued by alerts from the ASEAN International
Liaison Officers attached to RSN’s Information Fusion Centre. This was facilitated
by the IFC’s Real-Time Information-Sharing System (IRIS), a web-based
information-sharing system designed for rapid maritime security collaboration.
The exercise was also conducted in accordance with the Code for Unplanned
Encounters At Sea (CUES), a confidence-building measure to promote maritime
security, which was adopted by the ADMM-Plus navies in 2017 under Singapore and
the Republic of Korea’s co-chairmanship of the ADMM-Plus Experts’ Working Group
on Maritime Security. The exercise will
conclude with a sailpast of all participating ships.
Officer of RSS Vigour Lieutenant
Colonel Gavin Cheong said, "It is important for navies to cooperate with
each other to protect our key maritime trade routes and work towards safer
seas. This exercise allows the navies of ASEAN Member States and Russia to
strengthen collaboration, enhance understanding and build confidence in our
ability to address common maritime security challenges at sea."
participation in the exercise reaffirms our support for the ADMM-Plus and our
commitment to uphold an open and inclusive regional security architecture.
Participating ships are from Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Russia,
Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
