United States Force Posture Initiatives

United States Force Posture Initiatives in Australia

Announced in November 2011, the United States Force Posture Initiatives (the Initiatives) are an extension of Australia’s existing Defence relationship with the United States and support our common interest in promoting regional security and stability.

Through the Initiatives, Australia and the US are gaining new opportunities for combined training and improved interoperability between our armed forces. They also provide new opportunities for engagement with regional partners and position both nations to better respond to crises in the region.

The two initiatives are: the Marine Rotational Force - Darwin (MRF-D) and Enhanced Air Cooperation (EAC) and they are key to broadening and deepening the Alliance between Australia and the United States.
