Joint security exercise launched by Andaman & Nicobar Command

The Andaman & Nicobar Command’s (ANC’s) joint security exercise took place at an airfield in Port Blair on February 16, 2022. The main objective in conducting this drill was to test the security agencies’ readiness during various contingencies such as terrorist attacks, hostage situations, and hijack situations at the airfield or elsewhere. 

Drills were conducted day and night at both the INS Utkrosh and Veer Savarkar International Airport. The Indian army, navy, and CISF deployed Quick Reaction Teams (QRTs) to deal with threats portrayed as terrorist. 

Special forces such as the National Security Group, Ghatak Platoons, and Marine Commandos (MARCOS) were also mobilised for synchronised operations along with the Quick Reaction Teams. 

Joint Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) have been introduced by the ANC for security at Port Blair Airfield. These drills were designed to test, validate and fine tune the SOPs as well as improve coordination between all military and security agencies at Port Blair. 

The SOPs have been developed to effectively counter any threat on this critical airfield were also re-validated during the joint exercise.
