RIMPAC Exercises

In 1971, the first RIMPAC Exercises (Rim of the Pacific) was held, and the Oahu Event was held annually until 1974 when it moved to biannually. This year marks the 25th anniversary of RIMPAC. Several countries take part each year, but it is the United States military at the helm. RIMPAC is led by the Navy’s Pacific Fleet, which is headquartered in Pearl Harbor.

The exercises are completed by the Navy’s Pacific Fleet along with the Coast Guard, the Marine Corps, and the Hawaii National Guard. Several other countries either participate or observe by invitation of the U.S. military. Some of the countries that will be participating or observing during the 2016 RIMPAC are Russia, China, Chile, Colombia, France, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. India will be participating for the first time.

This Oahu event includes participation from 50 warships, 200 aircraft, and more than 25,000 personnel. Special operations teams also take part in RIMPAC, the goal of which is to enhance the ability of various organizations to work together to provide greater security to the Pacific Rim region.
