2:30 PM Leveraging Unmanned Aircraft Systems across the Arctic Region for Increased Domain and Situational Awareness

Of the greatest challenges that the expansive Arctic region encompasses, maintaining an adequate operating picture and sense of situational awareness has proven to be a demanding one. This session will provide an in depth look into the challenge of domain awareness in the Arctic with a specific focus on limited bandwidth challenges, the issue of command and control, sensor quality, and more.
- Technological capability needed to improve Alaska domain awareness and lessons learned for future Arctic mission sets
- Understanding the UAS security spectrum: counter drone considerations
- Challenges associated with de-icing of UAS assets
