Fourth, increase force deployment in allies to maintain a powerful military presence. In April, 2012, over 200 U.S. marines were stationed in Darwin, Australia for rotational training, and that number will be increased to 2,500 in 2017. U.S. bombers, fighters, and UAVs will also be deployed to the military base in Darwin. In July, the first group of 12 MV-22 Ospreys were delivered to U.S. military base in Iwakuni, and the U.S. plans to deploy more than 30 MV-22 Ospreys in Okinawa. In September, the U.S. and Japan reached an agreement, allowing the U.S. to deploy a second Sea-Based X-Band Radar in Japan. The U.S. is also considering regular deployment of P-8s or UAVs in either the Philippines or Thailand to improve maritime early-warning.

Fifth, enhance joint exercises with allied forces to improve joint and coordinated operations. In April, 2012, the U.S and Japan decided to jointly build and share training ranges in both Guam and Northern Mariana Islands for better training of Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) and the U.S. Marine Corps. Apart from joint training with allied forces, the U.S. Armed Forces also frequently conducted bilateral and multi-lateral joint exercises with allied forces, fostering coordinated and integrated combat capabilities in close-to-real-combat environment.
