Communications delivery for ABMS exercise
Chief Petty Officer David Montgomery, USS Thomas Hudner (DDG 116), talks with Capt. Raymond Reeves, U.S. Air Force, aboard the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the Gulf of Mexico Dec. 16. Reeves delivered critical communication equipment to Navy leadership with a little help from the local U.S. Coast Guard station. The Navy used that equipment during this week’s first demonstration of the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS), operators across the Air Force, Army, Navy and industry tested multiple real time data sharing tools and technology in a homeland defense-based scenario enacted by U.S. Northern Command and enabled by Air Force senior leaders held at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., Dec. 16-18.
