Developing a Multi-Platform, Multi-Sensor Approach to Achieving Domain Awareness in the High North
As the Arctic continues to grow in importance, governments across the region have published strategies prioritising their interests in the region. In 2016, military and civilian stakeholders are turning their attention to delivering on these policy objectives.
The High North remains a complex operating environment and both technical shortfalls and equipment shortages mean that operators continue to face substantial information gaps. Arctic Patrol & Reconnaissance 2016 will bring strategic military decision makers together with leading solution providers to consider the balance of space assets, maritime reconnaissance and patrol solutions and the unmanned capability required to deliver complete situational awareness in the Arctic.
The 4th summit will return to Copenhagen as the community reflects on the Danish priorities which are due for release in early May through a major White Paper on the Arctic. Building the new Danish perspectives into the wider regional discussions, the conference promises to advance the themes of cooperation, interoperability, communications and domain awareness.
As human activity grows maritime governance and economic sovereignty becomes an ever greater concern for arctic nations, the Arctic Patrol & Reconnaissance 2016 summit will continue to play a crucial role in advancing efforts to provide situational awareness and security in the region.
