DHS opens Arctic Domain Awareness Center

In order to better respond to and prepare for emergencies in the increasingly fluid Arctic environment, the Department of Homeland Security opened an Arctic Domain Awareness Center at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

The ADAC will work with 16 universities, institutional and industry partners in maritime domain and situational awareness, emergency response support, maritime technology research and integrated education. ADAC will also work with community observers in the native village of Gambell located on St. Lawrence Island.

ADAC’s development of critical Arctic data – ranging from weather, ship traffic, search and rescue capability, subsistence activity, offshore drilling and more – can help decision makers with the Coast Guard and DHS better analyze, anticipate and prepare for a range of scenarios that they will inevitably face.
