Summary

Location: University of Alaska Fairbanks, Gruening 412
Time: 9:00 am-12:00 pm AKDT

The Arctic Domain Awareness Center (ADAC) is a U.S. Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence program primarily developed to meet the information needs of the U.S. Coast Guard as they increase and extend their operations in the North Pacific, Bering, Beaufort, and Chukchi Seas. Although this is an Alaskan state-wide program with national participation, primary administration is through the University of Alaska Anchorage with research partnerships at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. ADAC strives to develop and transition technology solutions, innovative products, and educational programs to improve situational awareness and crisis response capabilities related to emerging maritime challenges posed by the dynamic Arctic environment. ADAC research areas include Maritime Domain Awareness, Maritime Situational Awareness and Response Support, Maritime Technology Research, and Integrated Education.

ADAC will host a townhall style meeting to explain the purpose of the Arctic Domain Awareness Center, describe the research needs of the Coast Guard, and solicit input on active and future research projects that may enhance operational security in the Arctic marine system.

Interested participants are also invited to submit two to three slides with relevant research ideas to Cassie Pinkel (cjpinkel [at] alaska.edu). The slides will be shared via GoTo Meeting. It will be possible to join remotely for those who will not be in Fairbanks.
