The 2018 Arctic Science & Technology Synchronization Workshop was sponsored jointly by NORAD USNORTHCOM and USD(R&E) to help represent DOD-wide science and technology with Arctic relevance. In-depth discussions of military-relevant Arctic S&T and policy, provided a stronger sense of potential requirements for Arctic S&T work and strengthened connections for DOD communities, including operational communities, who work in Arctic conditions and conduct research related to them.  LOCATION: The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory is a Department of Defense Facility located in Hanover, N.H. CRREL has unique core competencies in Arctic research and development, excellent facilities to showcase Arctic research capabilities and is well known internationally as a leader in the Arctic science and technology community.

Hanover, N.H. – Dr. Joe Corriveau, U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory Director discusses Light Detection and Ranging projects in the Arctic and subarctic with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Remote Sensing/GIS Center Director Dave Finnegan. Finnegan explained details of a specialized remote monitoring station designed, fabricated and tested at CRREL for use at Hubbard Glacier, Alaska. CRREL and the Corps of Engineers collaborates with the U.S. Forest Service and the state of Alaska to produce the system which provides near real-time monitoring of the glacier’s terminus position.

The researchers and NSF operations manager recently completed a deep-snow, wheeled aircraft runway capable of landing heavy cargo planes safely. “With the successful completion of the Phoenix runway, we have done something that no one else has done, said Melendy.”

More than 60 distinguished visitors flew to Kotzebue to observe Exercise Arctic Chinook, which is a joint USCG and U.S. Northern Command-sponsored exercise on the U.S. State Department approved list of Arctic Council Chairmanship events. The Arctic mass rescue operation exercise scenario consisted of an adventure-class cruise ship with approximately 200 passengers and crew that experience a catastrophic event with the need to abandon ship. Arctic Chinook exercised elements of the Arctic Search and Rescue Agreement to include interoperability, cooperation, information sharing, SAR services, and joint exercise review.

Dr. Chris Polashenski, research geophysicist, details some of the research solutions his team uses in the Arctic and high north regions to delegates of the National Guard’s Arctic Interest Council at the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H. Sept. 25. Delegates included: Council Vice Chair, Lt. Col. Darryl Lyon, High North Action Officer for Maine’s Army National Guard and Council Secretary, Col. Rodney T. Freeman, Director of Strategic Plans and Policy for the N.H. Army National Guard. The delegates are building a support team to assist with strategic planning and operational solutions if deployed to high north regions. Col. Freeman said, "CRREL would be a superb choice to not only help us stay abreast of the latest technological challenges the Guard and the Department of Defense can expect to face in the High North, but to be ready with innovative solutions." The council was chartered in Jan. 2017.
