(Defense News, By Mike Yeo) A Type 815 (Dongdiao-class electronic surveillance ship) was sighted in waters off the Australian state of Queensland where joint Australian-US exercise Talisman Saber is being held. The biennial exercise is designed to improve combat readiness and interoperability between both forces in planning and conducting combined task force operations. This year’s exercise saw 33,000 personnel participate, and included smaller contingents from New Zealand, Japan and Canada, with the bulk of activity taking place on and in the vicinity of the Shoalwater Bay Training Area in central Queensland. These activities included amphibious landings, paratroop drops, land-force maneuver operations, and air and maritime operations, and the exercise saw the use of sophisticated capabilities that included U.S. Navy and Australian Boeing E/A-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft, the General Atomics MQ-1C Gray Eagle and AAI RQ-7 Shadow UAVs, all of which would have been the key targets of China’s signals intelligence collection efforts.
