CARAT – Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training, 2017

The 3-day multilateral exercise CARAT – Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training boosts cooperation and interoperability between the U.S. Navy, Republic of Singapore Navy and Royal Thai Navy. While operating together at sea, the ships went through divisional tactic maneuvers, visit, board, search and seizure training, joint flight operations, and communications drills.

Both the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Sterett (DDG 104) and the littoral combat ship USS Coronado (LCS 4) participated in Exercise CARAT, while the Republic of Singapore Navy deployed the Formidable-class frigate RSS Intrepid, and Thailand sent its Naresuan-class frigate HTMS Naresuan.
