Completing the Arctic's Surveillance Picture
As the Arctic demands an ever more prominent position on foreign policy agendas, patrol and reconnaissance must step up. Delivering enhanced situational awareness will demand a collaborative response, not only from regional partners, but from different platforms. Space, air, maritime and land assets must integrate, in order to deliver a comprehensive picture of this most austere of environments.
Arctic Patrol and Reconnaissance 2017 will be a unique opportunity to debate the future development of High North capability. Senior commanders and leading solution providers will gather to discuss solutions to limited satellite coverage, poor communications and hostile climatic conditions. These operational issues will be set alongside high-level strategic discussions, which will identify the future priorities for enhanced Arctic security.
