Servicemembers to Conduct HA/DR Exchange with Philippine Allies

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii --

By invitation of the government of the Philippines, the United States military will conduct Subject Matter Expert Exchanges at Clark Air Base, Philippines, Jan. 16 to 25.

U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army and Armed Forces of the Philippines servicemembers will conduct bilateral Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief related SMEEs. The exchanges will center on the capability produced by the U.S. Air Force's deployable ground-based satellite imagery system known as Eagle Vision. The system provides real-time mission critical imagery acquired from commercially available satellites and is a key enabler to U.S. Pacific Command's Foreign Humanitarian Assistance response.

In addition to improving HA/DR capabilities for both nations, the exchanges will promote increased interoperability between U.S. and Filipino forces and continue to strengthen the  military relationship between the two longtime allies.
