Oman and U.S. Forces to Conduct Exercise Invincible Sentry


Omani and U.S. military personnel participated in a military exercise designed to improve interoperability and strengthen the enduring partnership between our two friendly nations while promoting regional security.

Exercise Invincible Sentry 2023 is designed to validate Omani-U.S. crisis-response planning and strengthen staff proficiency and execution in critical mission areas using scenarios involving a simulated transnational security threat. Exercise events occur at military training areas and other locations designated by the Omani government. The exercise also includes a headquarters element participating at U.S. Central Command headquarters on MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Florida.

Military-to-military engagements such as Invincible Sentry demonstrate the value of working together in unfamiliar environments and organizational interoperability, as well as working through combined command and control challenges, integrating systems, developing processes, and strengthening relationships and trust.

Both Oman and U.S. military forces are responsible for maintaining security, defending their respective national interests, and protecting citizens. This exercise helps clarify planning and conducting joint operations in unconventional environments, and the coordination required between militaries and other government agencies, as needed.

Exercises in the region are designed to strengthen military-to-military relationships, promote regional security, and improve interoperability with partner nations.”
