In 2024, RIMPAC featured over 150 planes, 40 surface ships, 3 submarines, and personnel from over 29 countries, totaling over 25,000 participants. The exercise, centered around the Hawaiian Islands, runs until August 1. The Indian Navy contributed by deploying the INS Shivalik, an advanced multi-role stealth frigate.

INS Shivalik’s Deployment

The INS Shivalik, an indigenous guided missile stealth frigate, showcases the Indian Navy's technical prowess and versatility. The frigate traveled 9,000 nautical miles to Pearl Harbor to participate in various RIMPAC 2024 activities, demonstrating the Indian Navy’s extensive operational reach. Prior to this, the INS Shivalik had been deployed to key areas such as the South China Sea and the North Pacific Ocean.

Phases of RIMPAC 2024

RIMPAC 2024 began with a harbor phase from June 27 to July 7, followed by a meticulously planned sea phase, further divided into three sub-phases. During these phases, participating naval forces will execute complex maritime operations involving an aircraft carrier battle group, submarines, maritime reconnaissance planes, remotely piloted surface ships, and amphibious force landing operations.

Objective and Significance

Vice Admiral John Wade, Commander of the US 3rd Fleet and the RIMPAC 2024 Combined Task Force, emphasized the exercise's twin goals: strengthening international ties and enhancing interoperability among allied forces. The main objective is to improve maritime operational skills to maintain peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. This aligns with the theme of RIMPAC 2024: “Partners: Integrated and Prepared.”
