Aerial marine species monitoring occurred 26 through 29 September 2012 for a Maverick Missile Exercise (MAVEX) training event that occurred in the Jacksonville (JAX) Range Complex off the eastern coast of Florida within the United States (U.S.) Navy’s BB and CC range boxes. These types of events occur periodically throughout the year and allow the U.S. Navy to fulfill essential training requirements.
