Arctic Strategy and Operations

CNA works at the forefront of operations, strategy and policy analysis of the Arctic—a zone of both cooperation among Arctic nations and competition between great powers. Our analysts at sea and ashore in the Arctic have provided real-time analysis to commanders on vital issues from operations and exercises:

  • Arctic command and control for the U.S. Navy Maritime Operations Center in Iceland and the Arctic Expeditionary Capabilities Exercise in Alaska
  • Cybersecurity and interoperability for Carrier Strike Group Nine during Exercise Northern Edge
  • Alliance management and carrier operations for USS Harry S. Truman carrier strike group in the first carrier deployment north of the Arctic Circle in nearly three decades
