India defence online reports that the Indian and Singapore navies are to conduct a series of annual bilateral exercises between the 3rd and 16th April 2010 in the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal. The exercise series are nown as ‘SIMBEX’

A press release issued by the Indian defence ministry said SIMBEX is an acronym for ‘Singapore Indian Maritime Bilateral Exercise’. The bilateral naval cooperation was formalized a decade and a half ago, when the Royal Singapore Navy ships began training in Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) with the Indian Navy, in 1994.

Over the years the exercises have reflected a growth in strength, capability and mutual confidence of the two navies. As such, the exercises have graduated from purely training oriented ASW exercises to complex exercises, involving multiple facets of operations at sea.
