U.S. Africa Command Public Affairs.

 At the invitation of and in coordination with the government of Cameroon, U.S. military forces will partner with Cameroon’s Ministry of Defense on a temporary, expeditionary contingency support location. The combined activities conducted at this location are designed to better enhance the capability and capacity of our partners in the Cameroon defense forces to promote stability and security within Cameroon and the surrounding region.

The deployed personnel will support Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) flights being conducted in the area. The results of these ISR flights will better enable African partners to secure their borders against violent/illegal activities disrupting our common desire for stability in the region. Most importantly, all information collected by U.S. unarmed remotely piloted aircraft is used to support international counter-violent extremist organization operations.
