As the large-scale military exercise Northern Edge 21 begins May 3, people at JBER and nearby surrounding communities may notice increased air traffic at the installation.

NE 21, a U.S. Indo-Pacific Command sponsored, Pacific Air Forces led, joint training exercise continues through May 14 at several military installation, local airports and training areas around Alaska.

This year’s biennial exercise involves personnel from the U.S. Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force conducting joint task force tactical and operational level requirements and transformation initiatives. 

NE 21 provides U.S. armed forces an opportunity to test and train on these and other concepts such as agile combat employment, joint all-domain command and control, and all-domain operations center.
