Exclusive interview with Stig Oestergaard Nielsen, former Commander, Danish Joint Arctic Command

One of the last unconquered wildernesses on Earth, the Arctic region stretches over 14.5 million square kilometres and the territorial borders of eight nations in the High North.

Vast, inhospitable and sparsely-populated, this landscape of predominantly treeless, permafrost-containing tundra presents a host of challenges for military patrol and reconnaissance operations.

In the following interview, we speak with the man who headed up one of the Arctic Eight’s centralised Arctic command centres, and ask him what has changed since the beginning of his tenure in 2012 and what will happen through 2021.
