FIWT focuses on nine areas: the employment of new technologies (unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), etc.) by conventional maritime forces; combining conventional maritime forces with expeditionary and special operations forces (SOF); maritime security operations; time sensitive planning; collection and exploitation of tactical intelligence; time-sensitive strike; counter narcotics and terrorism; information operations; and strategic communications.
"A significant portion of FIWT is focused on preparing commanding officers and crews to conduct forward-deployed operations, in challenging environments, without the assistance of a strike group staff," said Rear Adm.
During the FIWT event, VBSS teams from both Porter and Philippine Sea practiced positioning, approach, apprehension and protocol.
