The Army has a new strategy for regaining Arctic dominance. The force will focus on a new multi-domain enabled headquarters and improve training for forces operating in the Arctic region.
- Elizabeth Felling, Strategic Planner in the Army G-3/5/7, said the most important objectives for the Army’s Arctic strategy center around how to man, train and equip Army forces to be able to compete and operate in an Arctic region with its unique characteristics.
- Felling said the strategy is well-nested in the Defense Department’s strategy and supports the objectives of making sure the region remains a domain that is free and open to all nations and remains free of conflict.
- The Army is using training areas in Alaska, including the Northern Warfare Training Center, to prepare forces to succeed in cold weather environments, according to Felling.
