U.S. Naval Update Map: June 20, 2019

U.S. Naval Update Map: June 20, 2019
(Stratfor)

The Naval Update Map shows the approximate current locations of U.S. Carrier Strike Groups (CSGs) and Amphibious Ready Groups (ARGs), based on available open-source information. No classified or operationally sensitive information is included in this weekly update. CSGs and ARGs are the keys to U.S. dominance over the world's oceans. A CSG is centered on an aircraft carrier, which projects U.S. naval and air power and supports a Carrier Air Wing (CVW). The CSG includes significant offensive strike capability. An ARG is centered on three amphibious warfare ships, with a Marine Expeditionary Unit embarked. An MEU, in turn, is built around a heavily reinforced and mobile battalion of Marines.

Carrier Strike Groups

  • The USS Abraham Lincoln is underway in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations (AOR) in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region.
  • The USS Ronald Reagan is underway in the U.S. 7th Fleet AOR for a routine summer patrol.

Amphibious Ready Groups/Marine Expeditionary Units

  • The USS Wasp is on a port visit in Sydney, Australia, ahead of taking part in the Talisman Sabre 2019 exercise.
  • The USS Kearsarge is moored at a naval base off Aqaba, Jordan, for a scheduled port visit while underway in the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region.
  • The USS Boxer is in the Indian Ocean, while on its way to the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR.
