The aim was to exercise a Five Power Defence Arrangements (FPDA) Combined Task Force.
Battlegroup Headquarters from the UK, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand planned a combined operation in a fictitious regional scenario. This enhanced interoperability and strengthened relations between FPDA member-nations.
The exercise was hosted by Singapore and conducted virtually using Video Tele-Conferencing an innovative technology focussed planning methods. The FPDA is formed by Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom. It was originally established in 1971 to ensure the air defence of the Malaysian Peninsular Singapore. The ability to adapt to changing security environments has enabled FPDA to remain relevant to the needs of member countries as well as continue to play an essential role in the regional security architecture.
