Engineer laboratory hosts National Guard's Arctic Interest Council
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.
