USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG 58)

The guided missile frigate USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG 58) approaches the Panama Canal to transit from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea while conducting UNITAS 46-05 Pacific Phase. Samuel B. Roberts is part of a multinational naval and coast guard force from six nations conducting UNITAS 46-05 Pacific Phase off the coasts of Colombia. The Colombian Navy in this year’s UNITAS Pacific Phase hosts Ecuador, Panama, Peru and the United States. During the two-week exercise, participating units have the opportunity to train as unified force in all aspects of naval operations, from maritime interdiction to anti-submarine and electronic warfare. U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command sponsors UNITAS exercises with the objective to foster cooperation and develop interoperability among the navies of the region.
