Balikatan 2011 Exercise Summary
Balikatan 2011 is a Republic of the Philippines-U.S. bilateral military humanitarian assistance
and training exercise held in the Philippines. U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC), the Army Service
Component Command in the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) area of responsibility, is
executive agent for Balikatan. About 6,000 U.S. service members will train with Armed Forces
of the Philippines personnel during the joint bilateral exercise. Components of Balikatan
include civil-military operations, field training exercises and a command post exercise. This
was the 27th exercise in the Balikatan series and held under the auspices of the Mutual
Defense Treaty and Visiting Forces Agreement.
Balikatan demonstrates USARPAC's ability to support multiple contingencies throughout the
Pacific Theater. USARPAC's Contingency Command Post deployed from Fort Shafter, Hawaii,
to validate its capability as a trained and ready team that can support Pacific-wide operations.
Bilateral training is vital to maintaining readiness capabilities for both the U.S. and Philippine
armed forces. Balikatan sustains the long-term security assistance relationship between the
Republic of the Philippines and the United States. Balikatan increases interoperability between
military forces and enables them to provide relief and assistance in the event of natural
disasters and other crises. The government of the Republic of the Philippines and the United
States have a long relationship of working together. This partnership includes a 59-year-old
Mutual Defense Treaty.

All Partners Access Network (APAN)
The All Partners Access Network (APAN) provides for effective information exchange and
collaboration between the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and any external country,
organization, agency or individual that does not have ready access to traditional DOD systems and
networks. It enables professional networking and communication, increases situational awareness,
establishes pre-defined communications channels, relationships and information work flows, and provides a
forum for sharing lessons learned and best practices in a wide variety of contexts including crisis response,
humanitarian assistance, disaster relief, and training and exercises.
Benefits include decreased response times, greater coordination, information transparency and broader
cross-organizational knowledge visibility. While encouraging the open and easy exchange of information,
APAN also seeks to ensure the protection of sensitive information like users’ identities and personal
communications.
The All Partners Access Network history can be traced back to 1997 when the Virtual Information
Center (VIC) was established with the mission of conducting research using public domain materials for the
Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) and his staff. Admiral Dennis C. Blair, then
Commander of USPACOM, recognized the value of utilizing the same type of web-based technology used in
the VIC to help meet his regional security cooperation initiatives.
In March 2000, the Asia-Pacific Area Network, a non-dot-mil (non-military) commercial internet portal,
was stood up to enable online communication and information sharing. Over the years, APAN’s mission has
grown to support global Humanitarian Assistance / Disaster Relief HA/DR operations, partnership building,
joint exercises, conferences, table-top events, and are currently at the crossroad to becoming an
Enterprise DOD Unclassified Information Sharing Program.
In response to APAN’s expanding global customer base, in February 2010, APAN was renamed the All
Partners Access Network. APAN's unique organizational culture based on innovation, resourcefulness and
customer service has made it a leader in unclassified information sharing and collaboration throughout
the DOD.
