The disappearance of ice and increased human activities has focused unprecedented attention on the Arctic. The Arctic is the focus of Defence Research and Development Canada’s (DRDC) All Domain Situational Awareness Program, but if contemplating penetrating this new market, there are others able to help.
Arctic Security Consultants (www.arcticsecurity.ca) is led by Colonel (Retired) Pierre Leblanc, who has 45 years of experience in the region, during which he commanded the Joint Task Force North for five years and later managed the North Warning System for two years. Among his team are experts on search and rescue and security in the Arctic, adding to a network of political, business and Inuit leaders. Col Leblanc can be met at the B2B facilities.
