Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) will conduct Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2016 (SC/CS16) Feb. 1-12 on Navy installations located in the continental United States. This annual anti-terrorism force protection (ATFP) exercise is designed to train Navy security forces to respond to threats to installations and units. The exercise consists of approximately 300 field-training exercise events on and off Navy installations across the country, each designed to test different regional ATFP operations. The exercise's scenarios enable assessment of the Navy and civilian law enforcement's response to attacks both on installations and at soft targets off-installation.
