US, ROK Discuss ASW Cooperation
Senior leaders from the U.S. and Republic of Korea navies met at the headquarters of the Republic of Korea Fleet April 27, for a series of staff talks on anti-submarine warfare (ASW) cooperation.
The bilateral ASW cooperation committee is designed to exchange knowledge and develop training scenarios that enhance combined capabilities across all ASW domains from subsurface, surface, and air. Subject matter experts from both the U.S. and ROK navies meet quarterly to discuss the development of ongoing ASW initiatives.
Since the signing of the original ASW cooperation charter in August, 2014, special working groups from both navies have come together to develop methods to assess and monitor the progress of ASW improvement initiatives.
The ongoing dialogue signifies the commitment by both navies to exchange knowledge and develop training scenarios that enhance critical ASW skills.
