Delhi:

The Indian Navy will host the 27th edition of the India-Singapore bilateral maritime exercise SIMBEX-20 from tomorrow in the Andaman Sea. This joint exercise will be done tomorrow and from 23 to 25 November 2020 in Andaman Sea.

The SIMBEX exercise series, held annually since 1994 between the Indian Navy and the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN), aims to enhance mutual interoperability and implement better practices. The scope of these exercises has steadily increased over the last two decades, including advanced naval exercises covering a wide spectrum of maritime operations.

The SIMBEX 20 exercise this year will include naval ships from the Indian Navy as well as Chetak helicopters, destroyers Rana and indigenously built Corvette Kamorta and Karmuk. Apart from this, the Indian Navy submarine Sindhuraj and P8I marine reconnaissance aircraft will also be involved in the exercise. The exercise on behalf of the Republic of Singapore Navy will include an integral S70B helicopter and several ship tanks.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SIMBEX 20 exercise is being conducted as a ‘non-contact, on the sea only’ exercise. This joint exercise is done to promote mutual trust and coordination and mutual cooperation in the maritime sector between the two friendly navies and the maritime neighbors. In this joint exercise, the two navies will include advance weapons, anti-air warfare, etc. in three days of intensive joint operations by the sea. The joint SIMBEX series demonstrates a commitment to increasing overall maritime security and to a rules-based international order, particularly between India and Singapore.
