In early August, Sen. Lisa Murkowski introduced the Arctic Commitment Act, which calls for the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard to look into increasing their presence in the region. In a recent op-ed, Ryan Burke, professor of military and strategic studies at the U.S. Air Force Academy, suggested the military get help from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

  • This agency has a fleet of vessels, many of which already operate in the Arctic, and have a greater presence in the area than the Navy or Coast Guard, explained Burke.
  • Taking advantage of this underutilized federal partner would enhance environmental intelligence, create domain awareness and increase decision superiority to create a more secure Arctic, said Burke.
  • He also said Arctic Council members, including the U.S., that have cut ties with Russia should reengage to deter conflict.
