Determined Promise Exercise Designed to Safeguard U.S. from Tragedies

Determined Promise Exercise Designed to Safeguard U.S. from Tragedies

U.S. Joint Forces Command supports two exercises that test the military's response to terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. By USJFCOM Public Affairs staff

Norfolk, Virginia -- (USJFCOM) August 2, 2004 -- U.S. Joint Forces Command will support two major exercises, Determined Promise 04 (DP04) and Amalgam Virgo 04 (AV04) that kick off this week for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) to test the commands' responses to terrorist attacks on national, state and local levels.

USJFCOM developed DP04's scenario that will test USNORTHCOM's ability to assist civil and federal authorities in a coordinated response to simulate chemical, radiological, and explosive hazards, conducted in California and Virginia.

AV04 will evaluate NORAD in both live-fly and simulated exercises with a focus on air piracy, airborne terrorism, and cruise missile and unmanned aerial vehicle defense. AV04 activities will take place in eastern and western Canada, Oregon, Southern California and the Gulf of Mexico/ Florida panhandle.

USJFCOM provided inputs to include synthetic media that drive the training objectives in the exercise. In addition to providing synthetic media support, USJFCOM will observe and evaluate the military support in this exercise. USJFCOM also provides forces for USNORTHCOM.

The exercises will involve more than 4,000 Canadian and U.S. military personnel in three U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. The Virginia National Guard, under control of Gov. Mark Warner, will deploy 303 personnel to the Hampton Roads/ Norfolk area. The California National Guard, under the control of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, will deploy 52 personnel to the Los Angeles, Ventura County and San Diego areas.

The Southern California portion of DP-04 involves a simulated massive explosion of a radiological dispersion device in the Port of Los Angeles, resulting in casualties and thousands of resident exposures to the unknown substance "cloud," among several other events. State and federal partners, including the FBI, Transportation Security Administration, DoD, Department of Energy, the California National Guard Civil Support Teams, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will participate in the full-scale exercise.

In Virginia, the exercise will involve federal, state and local teams as well as those in the private sector. The exercise will test the abilities of Virginia's emergency managers and first responders to handle more than 12,000 deaths and 62,000 serious injuries arising from simultaneous simulated "terrorist" attacks including a cruise ship, a major auto race, a bridge and two tunnels in Hampton Roads, a large suburban Richmond, Va. shopping complex and a Richmond area elementary school.
