Armenia to join military communications exercise in Europe

YEREVAN, March 27 (RIA Novosti) - Armenia will take part in an annual U.S. European Command-sponsored military communications exercise in May 2006, an official said Monday.

Colonel Seiran Shakhsuvaryan said Armenian military experts had participated in the final exercise-planning meeting in Georgia on March 21-24 and added that the country would establish a satellite link with the communications center in Germany that will coordinate the exercise.

The exercise aims to check the communications capabilities of the participating states.

According to the USEUCOM Web site, "Combined Endeavor 2006 is an annual, U.S. European Command-sponsored, 'in the spirit of' NATO's Partnership for Peace, exercise focused on the integration and interoperability of command, control, communications and computers (C4). The exercise achieves interoperability between multiple nations, developing operational joint multinational C4 networks."

The exercise involves NATO-countries, Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine and several ex-Soviet republics in Central Asia.
