10:45 AM Preparing for, and Adapting to Future Arctic Operational and Strategic Challenges: A Naval Perspective
The US Naval War College’s introduction of the Arctic Studies Group back in 2013 represents a dramatic shift of thought regarding U.S. policy and military strategy in the Arctic region. The opening of the Arctic places new demands on the Navy to maintain presence and resource capabilities to operate in the austere Arctic environment. This session will go on to describe the US Naval War College’s efforts to identify and shift their thinking about future maritime strategy and force structure for the Arctic region.
