About DANEX 08
You are here:
DANEX 08 is over
After two hectic weeks at sea with hard work and many challenging tasks the DANEX exercise is now over.
Large-scale hostage relief operation in Ålbæk Bight
Exercise DANEX 08 ended with an extensive operation to save the hostages on board the ship that was hijacked more than a week ago.
The pressure is increasing
It has been a busy night for the ships participating in DANEX 08. And there are still many challenges before the exercise is over.
Tonight things get serious!
Tonight DANEX 08 moves into the final phase. Now the ships really will be tested in an exercise where – almost – everything can happen!
Busyness in the galley
With lots of guests on board during DANEX 08 everybody is busy on ESBERN SNARE. That certainly also goes for the galley.
The Danish Frogman Corps frees hostage
It was a part of DANEX 08 when the Danish Frogman Corps on the night between Friday and Saturday freed a hostage held by pirates.
Hunting smugglers in Skagerrak
An important tool for investigating whether a merchant vessel is carrying smuggler goods is to go on board and have a look.
They found the mine!
A gigantic column of water rose in Sejerø Bight when the mine clearance vessel STØREN yesterday detonated a mine.
Quickly on board
By means of a helicopter and a rope it is possible to get quickly on board a ship. The technique is called fast-roping and it is also trained during DANEX 08.
The electronic war
The ship’s surveillance radar can be jammed so that the operator doesn’t see an approaching aircraft. During DANEX 08 this kind of warfare is also practiced.
