The sea phase of SLINEX was held in the Bay of Bengal included Joint Boarding and Slithering operations by Special Forces of both navies, Over the Horizon Targeting drills, maiden underway replenishment of SLN ship with INS Jyoti and deck landing practices by ALH MK III on board SLN Sayurala. Exercises during Sea Phase also saw activities such as anti-piracy drills, gun firings, seamanship evolutions, communication procedures and search and rescue operations. The inter-operability achieved over the years as a result of such exercises has proved to be operationally beneficial for both the navies. The present edition of the exercise has further strengthened ties between the two maritime neighbours and helped in improving interoperability.

SLINEX was conducted from 7-10 March 2022 at Visakhapatnam.  The harbour phase included professional interactions between two navies on various topics, sports fixtures and formal calls as well as informal interactions.
