Coalition Task Force Sentinel opens new HQ

7th August 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The International Maritime Security Construct held a ceremony on 6 August in Bahrain to formally open the new operational HQ for Coalition Task Force (CTF) Sentinel.

The new and improved space will enhanced the flow of information and allow for greater coordination in tracking merchant shipping as it transits through key waterways in the Arabian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Oman.

CTF Sentinel is a multinational effort led by the UK RN. Ships and aircraft are deployd throughout the region as part of an international surveillance and detection effort, to ensure freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce in international waters.

Cdre Rob Bellfield, CTF Sentinel Commander, said: ‘The interoperability between Sentry ships from the region and Sentinel ships from Australia, the United Kingdom and United States, as well as regional Naval Operation Centres, highlights the close relationship we have allowing CTF Sentinel to maintain an operational strength we may not otherwise achieve.’
