  • 1. Arc$c  Requirement   Arc$c  Enabled;  Arc$c  Capable  
  • 2. Perspec$ve   •  A  number  of  allied  countries  are  focusing  on   the  Arc$c  opening  and  the  demand  side  of   Arc$c  opera$ons  (US;  Japan;  Canada;   Denmark;  Norway)   •  Clearly,  in  buying  new  equipment  (security   and  defense)  Arc$c  enablement  is  an   emerging  requirement;   •  But  what  exactly  does  this  mean?  
  • 3. Some  Ini$al  Considera$ons   •  Capability  to  locate  and  iden$fy  mari$me  and  air   plaLorms    poten$ally  in  viola$on  of  a  na$on’s   territorial  or  environmental  laws,  as  well  as  the   capability  to  assist  a  peace$me  SAR  opera$on  by   loca$ng  vessels  and  survivors  in  the  water.     •  Time  on  sta$on  poten$al  and  opera$onal  reach  are   also  important  given  the  nature  of  the  extensive  reach   and  challenges  of  opera$ng  in  the  Arc$c.     •  And  certainly  an  ability  to  conduct  Non-­‐Tradi$onal   Intelligence  Surveillance  and  Reconnaissance  in  the   support  of  SAR  missions  is  important  as  well.  
  • 4. Perspec$ve  1   •  The  Arc(c  is  clearly  an  area  in  which  presence   assets,  both  surface  and  airborne,  need  to  be   networked  to  provide  for  mari(me  safety,   security,  and  search-­‐and-­‐rescue  capabili(es.   •  Laird,  Robbin  F.;  Timperlake,  Edward   (2013-­‐10-­‐28).  Rebuilding  American  Military   Power  in  the  Pacific:  A  21st-­‐Century  Strategy:  A   21st-­‐Century  Strategy  (The  Changing  Face  of   War)  (Kindle  Loca$ons  2027-­‐2028).  ABC-­‐CLIO.   Kindle  Edi$on.    
  • 5. Perspec$ve  2   •  It  will  be  in  Russia’s  interest  to  build  air  and  naval   assets  that  can  provide  for  the  various  needs  for   defense  and  security  in  the  region.  Search  and  rescue,   communica(ons,  mari(me  domain  awareness,   significant  ISR  capabili(es,  bomber  coverage,   submarine  and  surface  fleet  coverage,  and  related   efforts  will  become  priori(zed.   •  Laird,  Robbin  F.;  Timperlake,  Edward  (2013-­‐10-­‐28).   Rebuilding  American  Military  Power  in  the  Pacific:  A   21st-­‐Century  Strategy:  A  21st-­‐Century  Strategy  (The   Changing  Face  of  War)  (Kindle  Loca$ons  1695-­‐1697).   ABC-­‐CLIO.  Kindle  Edi$on.    
  • 6. Perspec$ve  3   •  With  transport  over  the  northern  routes  becoming  part   of  the  global  scene  with  transit  of  resources  as  well   from  within  the  region,  a  new  center  of  energy—   figura(vely  and  literally—  is  opened.  With  this  new   dynamic,  Russia  can  become  a  mari(me  power  able  to   bridge  Europe  and  the  Pacific  and  redefine  the  “top  of   the  world”  aspect  of  Pacific  defense  and  security.   •  Laird,  Robbin  F.;  Timperlake,  Edward  (2013-­‐10-­‐28).   Rebuilding  American  Military  Power  in  the  Pacific:  A   21st-­‐Century  Strategy:  A  21st-­‐Century  Strategy  (The   Changing  Face  of  War)  (Kindle  Loca$ons  1725-­‐1728).   ABC-­‐CLIO.  Kindle  Edi$on.    
  • 7. Perspec$ve  4   •  The  co-­‐ope((on  concept  seems  appropriate  to  the  Arc(c   engagement.  To  facilitate  transit  and  exploita(on  of  raw   materials  in  the  region,  the  major  states  involved  will  need   to  work  out  arrangements  for  joint  opera(ons.  At  the  same   (me,  rivalries  are  inevitable  in  a  rela(vely  undefined   situa(on  whereby  boundaries  can  be  disputed  and  access   routes  contested.  Hence,  posturing  for  advantage  in  a   situa(on  where  coopera(on  is  crucial  seems  evident.   •  Laird,  Robbin  F.;  Timperlake,  Edward  (2013-­‐10-­‐28).   Rebuilding  American  Military  Power  in  the  Pacific:  A  21st-­‐ Century  Strategy:  A  21st-­‐Century  Strategy  (The  Changing   Face  of  War)  (Kindle  Loca$ons  1754-­‐1757).  ABC-­‐CLIO.   Kindle  Edi$on.    
  • 8. Some  Key  Requirements  for  a  Fighter   •  It  must  be  able  to  operate  with  decent  autonomy   and  perform  the  ISR,  C2  and  Presence  Mission   •  It  must  be  capable  of  being  networked  with  the   rela$ve  scarcity  of  assets  in  a  difficult  terrain   •  It  needs  to  operate  with  and  without  satellite   linkages  to  provide  for  ISR  and  C2  Func$onality   •  Must  have  sufficient  power  to  drive  ISR,  C2  and   other  capabili$es  to  perform  the  presence   mission   •  It  is  not  just  about  showing  up;  it  is  about  being   ready  to  play  as  the  challenge  demands  
  • 9. Requirements  (2)   •  Has  to  work  properly  in  very  cold   environments  (hydraulics,  deicing,  …)   •  Must  be  able  to  land  safely  on  snow  and  ice   •  Must  have  good  range   •  Must  have  speed  to  get  to  the  edges     •  Must  be  reliable   •  Must  be  capable  to  provide  mul$-­‐threat   presence  capability
