The Indo-Thai Coordinated Patrol (CORPAT) is a bilateral maritime exercise conducted bi-annually since 2005 by the Indian Navy and the Royal Thai Navy. The primary aim of this initiative is to reinforce maritime linkages and ensure the safety and security of the Indian Ocean for international trade. Key activities during these patrols include preventing unlawful activities such as illegal, unreported, unregulated (IUU) fishing, drug trafficking, piracy, and armed robbery. These patrols also focus on enhancing operational synergy through the exchange of information, which aids in the prevention of smuggling, illegal immigration, and conducting search and rescue operations at sea.

The 35th edition of the Indo-Thai CORPAT was conducted from May 3-10, 2023, in the Andaman Sea, along the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL). This edition saw the participation of Indian Naval Ship (INS) Kesari, an indigenously built LST (L), and His Thai Majesty’s Ship (HTMS) Saiburi, a Chao Phraya Class Frigate, along with maritime patrol aircraft from both navies. This patrol is a part of India’s broader vision of Security And Growth for All in the Region (SAGAR), indicating a proactive engagement with Indian Ocean Region countries to enhance regional maritime security. The exercise reflects the close and evolving relationship between the Indian and Royal Thai navies and is a step towards consolidating interoperability and strengthening the bonds of friendship between India and Thailand.
