2:40 PM EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVED SATELLITE COVERAGE IN POLAR REGIONS

  • Examining how to leverage polar-orbiting satellites to improve communications and reconnaissance in the Arctic
  • Developing high-resolution equipment to increase earth-observation ability, mapping conditions in real-time to ensure tactical awareness on the ground
  • The role of satellites in reporting on climatic conditions, and the utility of that data as a means to enforce operational effectiveness and safety
  • Nano satellites as a part of an Arctic space infrastructure: experiences so far
