North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command will participate with Mexico's National Defense Forces in AMALGAM EAGLE 19, a joint live-fly exercise to be conducted Tuesday through Friday.

The exercise will consist of flights along the U.S. and Mexico border by aircraft capable of detection and interception, according to NORAD and U.S. Northern Command.

Planning for the exercise was conducted with full respect for the sovereignty of each country, according to a release issued Tuesday.

Representatives from NORAD, USNORTHCOM, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Air and Marine Operations Center and the Transportation Security Administration will participate in the exercise, while participants from Mexico will include members of their Air Force, Civil Aviation Authority and Air Traffic Control Agency.

The exercise will focus on improving operations and communications between NORAD AND U.S. Northern Command, and SEDENA. They also hope to provide a common operational picture.

They also expect to conduct detection, identification and interception operations of simulated illicit or threatening air targets through the exchange of information.
