Striker Trident

U.S. Air Force Capt. Cody daMota poses for a photo aboard the Personnel Transfer Vessel (PTV) Malama during an open-ocean personnel transfer with a ballistic missile submarine, Aug. 15, 2015. Capt. daMota is one of the first four Air Force intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) officers selected to serve with U.S. Navy Submarine Forces (SUBFOR) ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) units through the Striker Trident nuclear officer exchange program. In May, he left the 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., to begin a three-year assignment as an assistant nuclear weapons surety officer in the strategic forces, nuclear weapons and force protection directorate at Commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (COMSUBPAC), Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. The Striker Trident exchange program enables Navy and Air Force nuclear-qualified officers to gain an expanded view of the nuclear triad, as well as each leg’s respective role in U.S. Strategic Command’s (USSTRATCOM) strategic deterrence mission.
