The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) Atago-class guided missile destroyer JS Atago (DDG 177) gets underway from Pearl Harbor to begin the sea phase of RIMPAC 2010 on July 6th.
RIMPAC is the world's largest multinational maritime exercise, with 14 nations, 32 ships and over 20,000 personnel taking part this year. A biennial exercise, RIMPAC stresses the necessity of operational readiness in the Pacific and the sentiment that building relationships with our global partners ensures maritime freedom for all. This year marks the 22nd in a series of RIMPAC exercises conducted since 1971.
