Gulf Nation representatives from Kuwait, Bahrain and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, along with their U.S. counterparts are participating in exercise EAGLE RESOLVE, a computer based, scenario driven command post exercise (CPX) at Fort Carson, Colorado, March 6-17. The exercise is designed to enhance integration among the U.S. and our Regional Partners in the area of air and missile defense. 


"The overarching objective is to protect populations and infrastructures," said Air Force Maj. Gen. Steven J. deMilliano, Director of Exercises and Training Directorate, United States Central Command. "In the face of the increasing threats we all face from malign actors in the region, we designed this combined exercise to enhance regional civil and military interoperability and process development and hone the skills necessary to defend our homelands and bases from the expanding air and missile threats."


The exercise, which last occurred in 2017, consists of a CPX and Senior Leader Seminary. Scenarios range from identifying and sharing air threats, border security operations, counterterrorism operations, and procedures to enhance consequence management planning. The seminar helps foster an environment to further develop enduring partnerships and relationships to ensure regional stability and security.
