Navy Installations to Conduct Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2015

Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) will conduct Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2015 (SC-CS15) Feb. 2-13 on Navy installations located in the continental United States.

This annual anti-terrorism force protection (ATFP) exercise is designed to train Navy Security Forces to respond to threats to installations and units.

Exercise SC-CS15 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise. The exercise will consist of roughly 130 simultaneous field training exercise attacks across the country, each designed to test different regional ATFP operations.

Capt. Greg Sandway, USFF ATFP exercise director, said:

Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2015 provides an opportunity to assess the Navy’s ability to respond to and recover from a broad spectrum of anti-terrorism threats.
