In a combined partnership between U.S. Sixth Fleet, the U.S. Office of Naval Research, and Croatian Naval Forces, the operation was the last in a series of three operations focused on employment and evaluation of next generation automated underwater vehicle (AUV) expeditionary MCM systems. The two previous iterations of this operation took place during Baltic Operations (BALTOPS) 2018, a joint, multinational maritime-focused exercise featuring forces from NATO allies and regional partners in the Baltic Sea region, and exercise Noble Melinda, an explosive ordnance disposal and MCM exercise that featured maritime forces from the Mediterranean Sea region.

“Working with the Croatian Mine Clearance Diver forces this past week has been a great experience.” said Lt. j.g. Logan Burchett, EOD officer in charge. “Getting to apply advanced Mine Countermeasures training and enhancing the interoperability between our two nations has proven to be an excellent experience for both myself and my platoon.”

In addition to the technical aspect of the operation, Croatian maritime forces enhanced the professional relationship between maritime forces among the two NATO allies, and increased the capacity of both navies to conduct the full spectrum of military operations necessary to deter adversaries and respond to any threat to regional security.

The Office of Naval Research provided our divers with a recently scanned map of the operations area. This gave the divers more situational awareness making them more cognizant of the obstacles around and minimizing their time in a potentially hazardous environment.”

U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts a full range of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation missions in concert with coalition, joint, interagency, and other parties in order to advance security and stability in Europe and Africa.
