US Marines Improve Maritime Missions during TS15
Marines embarked aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) and introduced the Joint Automated Deep Operation Coordination System (JADOCS) during exercise Talisman Sabre 15 (TS15).
According to Marine Cpl. Steward Bach, a JADOCS operator, their visit aboard George Washington allowed the U.S. Marine Corps to show the U.S. Navy their capabilities and how the Marine Corps can integrate and improve the Navy’s maritime missions.
Bach added that JADOCS is a system that links land and sea assets, and creates a clear image that is designed to allow a combatant commander to make better tactical decisions. It improves communication between all allied resources and provides more detail for real-world scenarios, which ultimately allows better tactical engagements.
TS15 is a biennial land, sea and air military training exercise between U.S. and Australian forces that features more than 33,000 personnel, 21 ships, 200 aircraft and three submarines, which increases U.S.-Australian interoperability to respond to a wide variety of contingencies and maintain security, peace, and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
