Exercise director and Spanish Navy Captain David Portal said: “Dynamic Move, a tactical level naval mine warfare computer assisted exercise sponsored by MARCOM, aims to exercise naval mine warfare and enhance standardisation and integration of our crews.

“This enables us to enhance Nato’s ability to conduct operations and promotes the convergence of Allied naval capabilities for future multi-domain warfare scenarios.”

As part of the ten-day long exercise, the naval mine warfare experts along with the subject-matter experts will provide training and guidance to the participants.

Furthermore, the exercise allows the participating nations to develop and sustain well trained mine countermeasures forces that can facilitate seamless integration. 

The subject-matter experts include legal advisors, maritime scientists, media trainers and Nato Shipping Centre officials.
